Self tot camper converted Volkswagens T1, T2 and T3 are plentiful. In all colors, (for) sizes and designs. Someone who wasn't very handy, went to Westfalia. That became an expensive joke. The insight and commercial spirit of one of Mr Ames, managers of one of the first Volkswagen agencies in the Netherlands, brought the Volkswagen motor home to the street at an affordable price in 1968. The Volkswagen Amescador, where the name was composed of Ames, ca from camper and pain van Dordrecht, the birthplace, was a sought-after product until the introduction of the BVB - Special Consumption Tax - abruptly ended it in 1984. In principle it was about the conversion of used Volkswagen Buses. Correct figures are not known, but it concerns a total of approximately 800 copies based on the T1 up to and including T3 and even the LT. A detailed description can be found in the August 2013 edition.
