Description

In a past life, Bustave was a government van for Infrax. Today it is one of the coziest campers you can find!

We bought Bustave (somewhat impulsively) in August 2020. It had been our dream for a long time to have a DIY camper. Corona gave us the last push to take action. After a first test trip of 3 weeks in Italy with an improvised interior, we were completely convinced that we wanted to make something beautiful out of our van.

With the help of Cobra Van Interior we were able to prepare Bustave for departure in a short time. On the outside, the bus is "stealth", ie you are incognito as a camper. With the red and white stripes and flashing lights still intact, people think we are coming to repair instead of camping. They are all the more amazed when they see what's hiding inside!

We have already made some short and longer trips ourselves. Along the Loire castles, the Northern coast and of course the beautiful south of France. Through the rugged interior of Spain, between the rocky villages and the magnificent coast of Portugal and also just in Belgium.

We think it's fantastic to leave in the morning with absolutely no idea where you will end up in the evening, but also completely stress-free, because on the bus you are equipped for everything! Spontaneously stopping in nice villages, picnics in places with a beautiful view and always meeting nice people. Rain? Find where the sun shines and drive there! traffic jam? Take that exit and go do something fun! Only you determine what your day looks like and that is the ultimate freedom, especially on vacation.
