You also get a lot of other advantages with the BusLife and one of those many things is the opportunity is to stay wherever the hell you want to stay! You can just jump in your van, drive to the next mountain, get yourself a nice place to stay with a good view and stay for the night. We also use our VW Bus in everyday life and I don’t see driving around with a big car or a small house as a disadvantage. For example, when I drive to my school I can always take my wakeboard with me and drive to the next cable park after school. I could even cook my own dinner, stay there over night and drive back to school the next day. A normal car wouldn’t be an opportunity for me. You can only get from A to B, but if you want to stay somewhere you have to get an expensive hotel room. It´s comfortable and cheap, that means it´s perfect for students like us, because a VW Bus T3 is everything in one car! Our perfect everyday car and campervan, but most of all, our beloved home.
The only challenge is to get all your stuff in your VW Bus if you want to go on a longer trip. But this is only because we want to take our boards everywhere we go. And this includes wakeboards, snowboards, SUPs and longboards. Yeah, this is a lot of big stuff to store, but we are going to have a good solution for this problem soon. A roof rack! First of all, it looks awesome on every VW adventure Bus and secondly, we can store all the big boards on the roof, that’s the best point.
The only challenge we can´t solve with an easy solution is our slow traveling speed because of our 57hp diesel engine, but I wouldn’t really count this as a disadvantage. It chills down the art of traveling, so we don’t need to stress ourselves, because we will be late anyway. 😉 Okay the last one was a joke, but the journey is our goal, so it doesn’t matter if we spend more time on the road than people with a “faster” van. And as they say, it´s not a slow car, it’s a fast house.
