before it's gone take a look at the Riviera Vista cruiser with it's original interior layout. it's open to the hightop all the way to the back
you sit up over the engine hump in the dinette/bed.
only VW interior I know of with stairs/steps.

My expirence with them has been they are much more rust free as --seems they were more like owning a motor home than a daily driver- so less salt and better floors.

Many are leery because of the perceived cross wind driving- but I never noticed it- passing big rig head on can be a challenge- but always stayed on the road- but never stored my motorcycle up there either.

Big sway bars and konis solve my problem with the wind and big trucks.

love those tires- I'm having trouble getting mine to fit the wheel wells in the back--maybe 205's are too big.

Tell us about that front bumper and light bar

Hey, is anything thinking of selling their adventurewagen/high top? I've recently sold my Westy, so looking for something different. Preferrably an original early adventure wagen.

Kind regards
