I am in the process of getting my 69 tin top camper running and was thinking about how much I like tin top campers over pop tops.. Not that I don't like pop tops aswell.... I have had a few in the past, but the look of a tin top is pretty sweet. So please if you could post up some pictures of your tin top and its awesomeness! I promise to upload some of mine when I get it out of the garage tomorrow.

Not sure what it takes to qualify as a camper. It has a folding bed, cooler, and a smidgen of storage.

My 79 - it's a 7-passenger, but counts as it has an original z-bed Laughing

My Neptune Blue 78 Riviera Camper with a HWE roof rack. Original cabinetry and upholstery inside in pretty nice condition. I was never a fan of blue and dark brown together until I found my Bus! Very Happy

My '69. I love the fact that I don't have to worry about replacing seals and canvas every so often, but I wish I had the head room sometimes. A westy Tent, add a room tent, or awning is mandatory for camping IMO.

1969. Bought it from the original owner a year ago. She lived her entire life in and around LA. Still has the original plate frame from Downtown LA Volkswagen.

Bought it yesterday, and picked it up @ Olsen's in Tampa today! We took Gandy bridge back, and there's this awesome little sandy inlet down there and I just had to stop. So much fun already! My intent is to put the camper interior in it.
