An Overview

VW Bus For Sale – Craigslist has become so popular that it has literally millions of people that post ads everyday. This site is also perfect if you’re looking for an original (or at least close to original) vintage VW bus. There are specialized forums where people post their “gift” auctions, restored VW buses for sale and restoration projects. A lot of people also participate and share reviews on different types of restored VWs. The best thing about this website is that it’s free, easy to navigate and the listings are pretty much updated daily. Just make sure to check out the forum threads to be sure that the seller is real and not trying to get people to bid on fake products.

The Real Deal: If you’ve recently sold or traded in your VW Camper Bus, Craigslist may just be the place for you to look for a quality used VW Bus for sale. There are many well established sellers here who have been selling for a long time. You can check out the current inventory as well as previous listings to ensure you’re getting a quality product. You can even browse through the archive section to read some vintage bus stories from owners who like to tell their stories.

VW Bus Facts

Background pattern

A Great Place to Find Quality Seized Cars: A vintage bus is a great addition to any collection because it adds value to it. And when you add value to something, you get more bang for your buck. That’s why a classic VW camper or tour bus in its original factory packaging is a good way to go if you’re looking for a nice mid-sized van with lots of creature comforts to enjoy while on the road.

You can also find VW Bus for sale at various public auto auctions around the country. Most auto auction houses will periodically feature vehicles that have been seized or liquidated by banks and creditors as an item of public property. These buses may only be a year or two old but they still have a lot of “life” in them, and people are always looking to buy them. So you can bet that at least one of these vintage buses will be up for grabs by somebody who’s ready to put some money down.

Buyers Beware: Some dealers are so desperate to unload their entire stock of VW Bus for sale that they’re willing to pay top dollar for almost any make and model. But if you look closely, you’ll see that the cost of the vehicle doesn’t include the full value of the body work inside. Some buyers are willing to pay 400% more for brand new VW Bus for sale. So keep this in mind when you’re checking out used camper buses for sale.

Bottom Line

Of course, as much as possible, you should seek to purchase a VW Bus for sale that is in good, working condition. There are two ways to find out if the seller is honest with you: By talking to the seller directly (you can do this by email or phone) or by having your self inspected. I highly recommend that you take the former approach above, because it is much easier to spot problems with used vw buses for sale that are newly sold, than it is to spot problems with rotisserie restoration that has been done improperly. A well-kept vintage bus is worth a lot more than a restored one, so don’t shortchange yourself in this area. If you want to get a good deal, buy a used VW Bus for sale with the best restoration possible; this will help ensure that you won’t be stuck with a lemon next time around!
