dub box creates volkswagen camper van-influenced caravans



dub box USA has put added a familiar form to the tailgate camper; family camper; food, or event cart. while it might seem like people are buying all of the remaining classic camper vans left in the world, dub box aims to provide an alternative to the quintessential camper van with its smaller and leaner ‘dinky dub’. the oregon-based company manufactures campers; food; and event carts from brand new fiberglass shells. so worry not retro volkswagen fans, there is still a camper van for you.

the 1 000 lb (454 kg) ‘dinky dub’ loses close to 3 feet (1m) of length; a pair of windows; plus a lot of price, in comparison to its classic counterpart. dub box specializes in volkswagen type 2-influenced pop-top fiberglass camping trailers. the trailers provide an option for those that love the aesthetics of the classic VW bus but want to camp in something simpler and more refined than a restored vintage camper bus.

the smaller, simpler volkswagen-influenced tow-along is set to enter the market next year as a 9.5 foot (2.9 m) trailer with 1,000 lb (454 kg) load capacity. it maintains the original retro VW flair that saw the vehicles rise to prominence during the 1950’s. it also loses the pop top, which means adult occupants will have to duck to clear the 4.3 foot (1.3 m) max interior height. the centerpiece of the ‘dinky dub’ is its convertible dinette set, which features two opposing benches; an end bench; and a centered table. in the evening, it can transform into a two-person bed that fills up most of the cabin.

a modular kitchenette sits inside the rear hatch comes standard as a basic hub with worktop. personal options including a sink; and portable stove, can turn the kitchenette into a fully functional caravan kitchen. the ‘build-a-box’ design allows owners to outfit it however they wish. boasting a generous loading berth, makes sliding things like bikes; and boards inside an easy experience, and the table can be removed to offer extra cargo space and interior flexibility.
