New guy
« on: 05 November 2011, 15:19 »
Hello, name is Paul and just got on the site. Lots of great info on here. I have a 69 AS that was a one owner and is all original. We got it with 67k on it and have had it for a few years now and up to 84k. I also have a 72 westy that has been down this year so we have been camping in the bug all summer. It's a little different to say the least but I also have a old Appleby that we have been pulling around. So anyway just wanted to kinda introduce myself and put up a few pics.

Great pics! Good to see others aren't afraid to get out on the highway in a vintage vw. I drive mine everywhere, It's never let me down.

The Appleby weighs about 300 empty. Once you put the canvas, poles, and camping gear in probably around 450. I can move it around by hand with it full fairly easily. The bug pulls it really good for a stock 1500 sp. We pulled it to about 10 campouts this year and thats with 2 young kids and wife. Next year we will be back to the bus for camping.
