The reality of a VW Bug motorhome itself is plain bliss, but when you add the homegrown art of the side, this is thing is pure genius.

I spotted this Beetle camper during my honeymoon road trip in 2005 off Route 66 in Holbrook, Arizona. Surprisingly, this is not homemade. These were made by a company called Bugaroo, though something tells us they were not hot sellers. There was also a time when Mechanix Illustrated magazine showed you how to build one yourself. All the details are still available at a web page here.
