I'm loathe to admit an affinity for any branded product, but I can't help it, I'm a sucker for VW buses and vans. Ergo, I love this tent! It's an officially licensed 1:1 scale of the iconic 1965 T1 camper van that comes in red, blue or yellow.

We found it for sale at Firebox for just shy of $500. Available for pre-order, the two room tent with sewn in waterproof ground sheet is scheduled to ship at the end of August 2011.

While that's probably too late for this camping season, it's got me thinking that I should be planning a mid-February road trip to a Southern California beach to test this baby out.
