1970s Volkswagen Beetles Converted Into RV Hybrids Called “Bug Campers”

In German, Volkswagen means the “people’s car,” and it was built to be efficient yet inexpensive for the everyday family. Volkswagen is perhaps best known for its iconic Beetle. The cute and curvy car was, in fact, the first model produced by the company back in the 1930s. In German, Volkswagen means the “people’s car,” and it was built to be efficient yet inexpensive for the everyday family. While automobile technology has been refined and improved over the years, the silhouette of the beloved Beetle has largely stayed the same. But despite this commitment to design, car owners in the 1970s wanted to challenge the function of the practical vehicle—taking it from the city streets to places off road. Known as the Super Bugger, Volkswagen owners had Beetles that were a cross between it and an RV—an eye-catching bug camper that still exists today.


The Super Bugger was the brainchild of a third party company who constructed and sold the unusual vehicle for a cool $6,000 in 1975. They used fiberglass paneling to construct a small living space behind the two front seats. One couple, who have since maintained their Volkswagen Beetle camper, showed it off at a car show in 2016. They revealed a tiny interior and only a modest kitchen inside—no space for a bed. But, for those who prefer to sleep under the stars, this bug camper provided (and still provides, with upkeep) some convenience on long cross-country trips.

Inspired by the beloved Volkswagen Beetle, people in the 1970s converted the car into a Super Bugger.

Inside, there’s a small kitchenette—but no room for a bed.

Would you ride in this vintage bug camper?

This video shows another look inside of one:

Here’s how the Super Bugger was advertised in the 1970s:

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Kudos!

    I think everything published made a lot of sense. But, think about this, suppose you were
    to write a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added
    a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean 1970s Volkswagen Beetles Converted
    Into RV Hybrids Called “Bug Campers” is a little boring.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they create post titles to grab people to open the links.

    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people
    excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
