I have an 84 Westy that might be fun to decorate for the annual "Trunk-or-treats" we attend with our kids. (7, 5, & 3) We have a modest onboard aux. battery for power. Everything else functions as normal.

Let's see some ideas.

Perimeter LED rope lights, cotton cob webs with spiders a smoke machine and a strobe light.

maybe a dead body in the upper bunk and something 'brewing' on the stove with some dry ice?

We almost bought an '82 air-cooled from Chicago called "The Pumpkin Wagon." (or "Wagen")

Halloween was its entire gig. Not sure anything's online about it, but it was super cool! (except when running, being air-cooled and all...). Wink

No dead bodies, that being frowned upon and all. Wink

We set up B.O.B. in the driveway the last couple of years rather than have the little goblins come up to the door. The temperatures were rather nice in the 60's so we just hung out in the van offering free candy to children. That sounds kinda creepy, doesn't it?.

I didn't get any good pics of the final after-dark effects but you get the idea.

Syncronicity did up his orange Syncro as a pumpkin a few years back for a parade, and it was fantastic. Sadly, the link to the picture he posted is dead.

These pics are great! Thanks for the ideas!
I've been kinda toying with ideas involving a missile launcher or a Mr Hanky. (It IS the Brown/Tan Wolfburg GL after all)
