The iconic aircooled bus styles, from about 1957 – 1979 are becoming harder to find, but we know where some stashes are, and can get you one.

Here’s a kool article about a shop that specializes in modern day conversions that keep the history of the VW Transporter conversion in mind along the lines of the Westfalia, Riviera, and even the Winnebago. 

This company does transformations in which Volkswagen Transporter vans become a whole lot more awesome.

Volkswagen’s Transporter vans aren’t usually known for their stylish interiors, comfortable living spaces or modern kitchen facilities.

Coming in a range of shapes and sizes, the iconic van is now more than 65 years old and they are often used commercially due to their value, quality and ability.

But one company is aiming to change the way people view and use these vehicles – by converting them into sleek and stylish living spaces, offices, garages or whatever else their clients decide they want.


Based in Pontyclun , New Wave Conversions have been transforming leisure vehicles since 2010.

Starting with just two staff members, the company now employs a dedicated team of specialists who undertake conversions within the T5, T6, Caddy, Caddy-Maxi and Crafter range.


The company offers a number of different conversion packages – from traditional holiday camping vans to everyday sports vehicles and beach vans.


Emily Powell, head of sales at New Wave, said: “We try to make the conversions as personal as possible , so we work by an appointment basis and sit down with every client beforehand to fit the designs around their lifestyle and character.

“One of our most popular conversions is the ‘Traditional Lux Camper’, which comes with all of the functions required for a modern day camping experience.


“We call it our ‘bread and butter’ package and we do at least one of these a month.

“The second most popular is the ‘Sports Multipurpose Conversion’ and this comes with all of the functions for a day van/surf bus/ overnight sleeper.
