Classic VW Buses are already true works of art. But some BusLifers take them to the next level.

In our gallery, we highlight our BusLifers’ amazing artwork and photography. We’ve also gathered a range of VW BusLife experiences from around the world.

Are you an artist, photographer, or fellow traveler? We’d love to feature you!


For many of us, VW Buses are so much more than a way to get around. They represent an entire BusLife lifestyle.

Here, you’ll find stories and travel advice written by BusLifers from all over the world. We hope they inspire you, excite you, and help you feel a sense of belonging.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to share the joy of the BusLife lifestyle. We do this by:

  • Connecting fellow VW Bus enthusiasts around the world
  • Inspiring people to share their stories
  • Promoting products, services, and events that bring us all together.

In 2003, we unexpectedly found our calling in the form of our first Classic VW Bus. She was a white 1971 Bay window campervan. She had a lot of miles to her name, but she was still in perfect shape. We named her Westy. In the years to come, she didn’t just carry us all throughout Europe. She initiated us into an inviting, global community that taught us so much about life and joy.

Our Values


The BusLifers community stretches around the world and shares a bond that goes beyond language barriers and distance. Behind the wheel of the same iconic vehicle, it’s as though we’re all on a glorious adventure together, regardless of where in the world we physically are. When we meet fellow BusLifers at the same rest stop, we always strike up a conversation that could spark a lifelong friendship. No matter where in the world we find each other, that special kinship is always there.


Beyond just a means of transportation, Classic VW Buses are rolling homes that can set off wherever the road takes them whether to small nearby campsites, or wide open spaces far off the beaten track. Pack up a lunch for a day trip or mark your map for a weeklong adventure, and the world is yours. When you’re cruising the highway in a Classic VW Bus, you’re free to drive wherever a car can go. Wherever you park, you’re free to set up as if you’d brought home with you.


No matter who you are or how busy your work keeps you, a VW Bus promises the adventure of a weeklong trip to a far-off canyon, a weekend in the mountains, an afternoon at the beach, or a lifetime on the open road. Wherever your heart takes you, your Classic VW Bus will help you get outdoors and explore new places with as many friends and family members as you can fit aboard.


Sure, there are other ways to travel. But nothing beats taking a road trip in your Classic VW Bus. With simple, nostalgic charm, VW Buses make the journey just as much a part of the experience as the destination is. There’s no better or more
authentic way to travel than from the high-set driver’s seat of a Classic VW Bus.
