My Tiny House On Wheels

Yes, I live out of this 1978 VW Westfalia and have everything I need…I travel to the good weather…

Moon Lighted Camp along Hwy 35 somewhere in Montana

Headed for more shelter from story weather and winds

Camped out in the Borrego Badlands

Just sharing the peace and beauty near The Clark Fork River

Yes, I live out of this 1978 VW Westfalia and have everything I need…I travel to the good weather…I meet interesting People everywhere I go….not only that, but friends say I have MORE than enough(I have to agree-freedom)…I can enjoy Million Dollars views as my Backyard wherever I travel and not pay anything…just take a Look. Like my Plate Frames read “Home is Where You Park It”

Love your Site, looking at someday getting a Tiny Home for a Home Base, the ideas inspire me. Simple is Better.

    Hi RG;
    Yes your VW Micro-bus is quite Fab, but didn’t know you could get that kind of configuration here in the states,; it looks like a European model, with the pop-up and all. Great for perusing the country, and yes a great small home base in the future, will definitely make your adventures, last longer throughout your life…..love it, Happy living, and thanks for sharing;

      Thanks JCinCT…she is one of many VW Factory Built Campers called Westfalias or refered to as a “VW Westy”. This one was imported here by my Father when bought new, but many were for sale in the US for many years…this one is a Champagne Edition Westfalia (limited build 3 Month only in 1978). Thanks…and You Live the Good Life as well my friend!

    I lived in a 1970 VW camper for a year – it was very comfy and had everything I needed – propane stove, porta potty, gas heater, stereo. It was not as nice as your Westfalia, but still a great little home.

      have had 2 westfalias in the wrong time of my life……..so, didn’t use them……now, since retired i would be most interested in tallking w/you or others about where to get them….pros and cons for a single woman, etc. Got both of mine on line and needed some mechanical person to be my buying partner. Any suggestions would be most welcomed. How long do you travel at once?

      Photos are beautiful. Thank you

        Thanks Nancy Ann…Finding one of these in good working condition is a bit of a task anymore, and require a bit more knowledge and care than a Modern Vehicle being they are Air Cooled engines…but the rewards for maintaining one is priceless in the rewards of use…and a Great way to meet people also! Ha! VW does sell a Camper Van still with a Modern Engine but they can be on the Expensive side. If you are to purchase one of these vehicles, as you stated and I would suggest…it would be wise to have someone who is very familiar with them to go along so you know what to look for and what to watch out for. I have a Friend who has traveled extensively in her 1976 Westy and is very happy…travel is slow and rewarding in one of these. In the proper weather (not too Hot of Weather) I’ve traveled up to 9 Hours with a few stops…the reward is this vehicle makes you slow down and really enjoy the Travel and not just the Final Destinations. The Samba is a Great Site for VW enthusiast and can also lead you to many sites for Camper Lifestyle…another is a friend of mine at Ratwell.com for a deep education on the VW Bus History and Models…also with links. Happy Campers (Google VW Camping Clubs) is another I belong to…so many out there, so start your Journey and Happy Trails towards a rewarding Life! ~ RG

      Thanks Jessica…you, as many, have enjoyed these VW ways of Life and Travel and know how rewarding it is to have so much utilization out of a smaller footprint which allows travel into areas other Vehicles or Homes can’t be put. This one was imported here by my Father and is a Champagne Edition Westfalia (limited build 3 Month only in 1978). Thanks for the comment…and may You Live the Good Life wherever life has taken you to now my friend!
