    Yes I posted that link a few years back as a recommendation of an RV for Vaughn. Pretty neat but I suspect top speed would be limited...

    Wouldn't want to be caught in a strong cross wind with that.
    Folks used to try to make VWs do everything imaginable and unimaginable.

    I had a '72 VW camper bus with a pop top that my wife and I got to go camping in... only she decided the baby was too young to take camping so we never camped int it... I was commuting to work on highway 101 just about Coyote Point in San Mateo... the area is noted for high winds... a gust of wind hit the side of my bus and almost took the pop up top off... by the time I regained any composure I may have had, I discovered I had either been blown over one lane or when the top popped, I jumped and jerked the wheel over one lane... luckily traffic was light.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
