Not A Westy

If you see some sort of VW camper van on the road, it’s probably a Westfalia. These are not Westfalias.

For some reason, when I started searching for a bus, I had a predisposition towards Westys. Maybe it’s because my dad had Westfalias. The other ones just looked funny to me and were usually ragged out. I guess I thought they were bastards or somehow not ‘official’ VW buses or not good enough or some other ridiculous bias. I was wrong and I’ve changed my mind. If I can find one for sale, my next bus may be a high-top or a Dormobile. The Dutch variant is pretty cool too – and spacious.

I promise – really – that this is the last post from Buses by the Bride at Lake Havasu. Promise.

    Today, I spotted this article on CNN’s site. Since you have mentioned going to Mexico, I thought it might be useful.

    Dormobiles are sooo hard to find here in the states!

    Elliott, I’m with you on that high roof, got to be the only one left.

    Good luck on your travels in Mexico, I always wanted to do that but life kinda got in the way.
