Why Every Child Should Know ‘Volkswagen’

VWLogoWhether you’re a Volkswagen fan or not, we can pretty much all agree that these German-bred cars have made their mark in vehicle history. From clean Diesel cars to hybrid electric models, VW is known for being on the cutting-edge of engine technology. Perhaps you remember one of their earlier contributions to American culture: the 1965 VW Camper Van.

Ahhh….the camper vans. If you saw one driving on the road back in the 60s or 70s, you pretty much assumed that the family inside it was traveling across the state, building memories and exploring the great outdoors. While you certainly don’t see too many camper vans driving around town these days, that doesn’t mean they’ve been forgotten.

VW Camper TentLet us introduce you to the 1965 VW Camper Van Tent, an exact replica of the 1965 camper vans that many American families spent time traveling in.

The VW Camper Van Tent: Affordable Fun for the Whole Family

Now that the cooler weather is setting in, you probably don’t know what to do to keep your kids busy. They love running circles around the home, but that doesn’t mean that you do! If you live in a climate where the winters are cold, snowy and windy, you’re pretty much limited to the indoors. While there are plenty of kid-friendly places to spend your afternoons, paying per child gets expensive, and you don’t want to have to leave the house just to enjoy some fun.

The solution: the VW Camper Van Tent.

VW TentChances are, you recognize the name right off the bat. After all, who could forget the classic 1965 VW Camper Van from back in the day? You may have even spent a few family vacations in one of these vans many years ago (not too many, of course!). To bring back some great memories and keep America’s families spending quality time together, the VW Camper Van Tent was created by The Monster Factory USA. The tent is an exact replica of the 1965 van, and it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

VW Camper Van in the real world: Upstate New York

Everyone loves the VW Camper Van that symbolizes fun, freedom and unstructured travel in the U.S. While it’s true that the iconic camper van can be found across the world, it holds special meaning to American families, especially those who owned their very own camper back in the 1960s and 70s. With its split screen, boxy shape and numerous configurations for sleeping and storage, the VW Camper Van can’t be mistaken for anything else.

Here at The Monster Factory USA, we can’t help but recall the fond memories that these camper vans have brought to our own families. That’s how the 1965 VW Camper Van Tents came to be. These tents look just like the 1965 model of the Volkswagen Camper Van and are available for kids and adults.

As real as the tents appear, we do not recommend trying to drive them down the street!

The Rich History of the VW Camper Van

History of VW Camper VanThe VW Camper Van is an iconic part of history. It was recently announced that production of the VW Transporter Type 2 will end next year, but not because of lack of popularity. Over the years, over 3.5 million camper vans have been produced around the world, and demands from new markets are coming in all the time. Unfortunately, new safety laws in Brazil for 2014 aren’t compatible with the minibus, so Volkswagen will be looking at its last model in December.
