I recently sold my other bus and now Up for sale ismy Beautiful and mostly original 1978 VW Camper bus called a "Riviera". These buses are the same as the "Westfalia" type with the main difference being it has a full pop top camper giving much more room up top! The bus is in Great user-friendly shape and all the systems are in working order and this camper is ready for years of fun and adventure.

Camper Equipment:

  • Full folding lower seat/Bed for 2 people down below
  • Full double bed for 2 people up top
  • Factory Sink with onboard water tank
  • Factory closet & tons of under seat and overhead compartments
  • Factory Jump Seat with seat belts
  • 110v electrical hook up for campground electricity and interior outlets!
  • Factory Ice box / fridge under sink!
  • VERY cool Storage Box and ottoman
  • Comes with nice 2 burner portablePropane stove

Vehicle equipment motor/trans/driver cabin:

  • 2.0 liter fuel injected motor. (The best of the best for this era of bus- reliable and powerful)
  • 4 speed standard transmission
  • Front seats are low-back bus style with newer covers attached
  • Gauges work as they should
  • Stereo was upgraded to a CD player for more modern sound quality
  • Have curtains (front ones not in photos as I was washing them)


  • The body and frame is a nice rust free example of a west coast vehicle
  • There is no apparent rust, he frame, loors and around all windows are very clean.
  • The bus has an older paint job- it is RED (looks a little orange in photos). The paint is attractive but when your close you can see a few chips and touched up spots. Again, he bus looks really attractive but I just want to be clear that its an older paint job with minor touch ups and blemishes.
  • There is a small dent in very lower corner of sliding door. Doesn't affect opening or closing. Also there is a small dent in passenger lower door under the reflector lens- its minor and not missing paint
  • All the rubber seals are in decent shape and keep water out

Other generalinfo:

  • This bus was bought from a localman who had driven the van all over theWest coast and in Canada.All parts are replaced with quality German parts sourced from other VW buses or from Germany.
  • This bus needs nothing and is not missing anything and all systems work. The tires are in good shape

In closing, am looking to sell this bus to a good home. These buses are very fun and this specific one can certainly be used as a daily driver with occasional family fun or you can travel the globe with it. With stove, ink ice box and electrical- you can do just about anything.
