Overview

The best of both worlds! Bluie is a time capsule, and he's ready to take you on a trip back in time! Like many VW's, he appeared to have blown an engine and the owners never got around to fixing it. So, he sat from the early 80's until I found him in around May of 2016. The original tent and interior are still perfect, and the original paint is still gorgeous. There are two beds, comfortable for two downstairs and two in the poptop. In addition, he now has a rebuilt motor, good brakes, new tires, and a perfectly functioning automatic transmission! I've also added a solar charged second battery that powers the lights, refrigerator, and sink pump. You'll be able to use the accessories in the van, and still start him and drive home when the trip is ready to end. There are seatbelts for five in Bluie, and pets can be allowed on request. However, remember this bus is probably more appropriate for car shows in its time capsule condition, so I'm much more comfortable allowing you to bring a 12 year old chihuaha than four 2 year old shepherds :)

What an epic trip. Erik was easy to work with and proactive with tips on how to travel in the van. Could not have been easier. And Bluie! This is a time machine that transports you back to when the best flatscreen you could own was the windscreen of a '79 VW bus. Get off your cell phone, get into...

Bluie is an awesome bus! My family and I had a great couple of weeks camping by the beach and wouldn't hesitate to do it again!
