I came across this in Jerome AZ a few years ago. Iím guessing itís a Karmann. I think I like it. It would be great for camping. That body has got to be heavy, whatís the chance it has a 2L in it? Anyone ever own one of these?

I could imagine that coasting down from Flagstaff but not driving up from Phoenix.

I bet it handles great in the wind. Try taking that over the Golden gate or the Bay Bridge!

It's a Jurgens Auto Villa, not a Karmann camper.

I have pics of that bus from Jerome as well. It was parked up at the Gold King Mine, not at the campout itself.

Jurgens Auto Villa, got it. It helps the google search when you have the right name. Looks like their still in business.

Anyone know how to change the subject title of a post?

That worked, easy fix. From your photo it looks like part of the collection of the guy who owns the Gold King Mine. He has a lot of odd stuff in there. If I had money and land in AZ I would probably do the same thing.

The Gold King Mine is awesome. I spent probably 2 hours just looking around; and i doubt I saw it all.

Really like that rear roof from a '47 Studebaker Starlite coupe used as a front porch/entryway overhang going into one of the vehicle display buildings ("Studebaker Shop"?). http://www.turnpikecruiser.com/gallery/Arizona_Road_Trip/Gold_King/Gold_King_Mine_22.jpg.html

The kids and adults had a ball going through the mine.

Yeah, you'd roll a bus with a house and roof on it, so that doesn't surprise me

Hideous. But a smallblock V8 would make it more interesting.

Is that really a Jurgens? looks more like a conversion performed in the US somewhere based on the style of the body. Personally I think they look OK, good if you want maximum camper space but want to keep the VW thang going.
