After the rapid growth in the 50s of the desire for free mobility combined with the wish for travel to southern countries in large sections of the population, the camping culture became widespread as never before. It quickly occurred to a few talented vehicle developers that, in addition to the trailer caravans already known since the 20s, motorised caravans, motorhomes, could be developed. Thus, in California, a building kit appeared with which a VW Beetle could be converted into a low-cost version of a small motorhome - the Bug Camper. As well as demanding some handiwork skill, the conversion did take a good deal of time. The normal space in a Beetle was not enough for two beds, a table, wall cupboards and cooking facilities, so massive changes had to be made. To achieve this, the bodywork from just in front of the windscreen to the rear end was completely removed and a wooden superstructure was then built on the remaining chassis. Schuco is going to produce a miniature model of this legendary VW Beetle "Motorhome" to a scale of 1:43 in the PRO R line. This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.
