Do You Remember This VW Camper That Can Pivot 360 Degrees?

Do you remember this VW camper film that was made way back in 1974? Watch what innovation looked like over 40 years ago.

Here’s an amazing look at an old school VW Beetle fitted to haul a small camper from around the year 1974.  The crazy thing is that the camper is attached to the VW by the roof via a strap-on hitch that, get this, allows the driver to move the camper 360 degrees!

Kick back, relax for a minute and soak in the innovation from a day gone by. This is how they did it back in the olden days.

While that Beetle was sitting low and looked like it was doing all it could to pull that little camper down the road, it only has a very small engine; an engine that’s in the back!

Interestingly enough that little camper looked like it was made just for a VW. The video says that it can sleep four adults, or two adults and three children, but that they better be ‘friendly’ After that, if it’s maneuverability that you’re looking for then this thing would have a great place in today’s world as well.
