Pictures of a restored Camper and an original 13w – both in solid colour of Lotus Weiss

L282 Lotus White Deluxe VW Campervans – restored and original


Whilst single colour campervans are not unusual – a solid colour deluxe campervan is. This particular Camper is a rare in itself being a 21 window deluxe bus – often called a Samba.
A nicely restored 21w Bus – L282 Lotus White top and bottom (inside too) and with the correct L82 Silver White Bumpers and wheels, the deluxe waist line trim or belt trim doing a super job of accentuating the nose on this Bus;

Mid restoration pictures – looks like its getting a grey interior – originally Lotus White buses had a tan colour of aero balearic scheme – rarely seen nowadays and not reproduced by TMI, this picture shows the amazing sunroof, skylight and walk through front seat configuration;
