I've looked thru the archives & links here (incl. all the brochures), but can't seem to find what I'm looking for (good pics of an original, stock, OEM 1971 Campmobile interior + upholstery options). I've been looking for details on colors, options, flooring, etc.

With a lot of searching & detective work, one can generally get a good sense of these details, but I wondered if there was a dedicated space that simply had it?

I'd love to be able to go to a site, choose my year, model, specs & pull up the stock details & pics of what VW originally shipped.

Any thoughts?

I like the idea of having a collection of photos of original buses. I have some photo archives my self that I could contribute, but nothing from 1971.

Each could have its own thread here, even. If they all started with "Original 19xx bus documentation" or something like that, they would be easy to find. This would be a good service to the community.

Decoding the M-Plate would help.
