Claus Schultz, BMW Isetta (1957 ), Pouch tent (1970)

V probably there is little that upsets Claus 'Samson' Schultz. Not even the fact that his otherwise heavily used camper, a Bedford Hymer from 1979, was exceptionally not ready to drive, didn't put the man from Flensburg in a bad mood. 'Then I'll sleep in my pouch tent, a classic from the former GDR,' explains the camping and Isetta fan, who always takes his small car on every trip on a trailer.

Claudia and Ulrich Klee, Ford Mustang, Eriba Pan (Bj. 1974)

' We just didn't feel like going to classic car meetings any more Looking for a hotel ', Ulrich Klee explains the decision to hang a caravan behind his Ford Mustang from now on. A modern model was never an option for the two. The couple from Iserlohn bought an Eriba Pan four years ago, built in 1974, which is being restored with great attention to detail. The model with its pop-top roof, the well-equipped front kitchen and the large bed, in which people who are 1.90 meters tall can sleep comfortably, is the ideal choice. Shorter vacation trips between the Rhine, Berlin and the Baltic Sea are the result, and of course the trips to the meetings of the camping club.

Family Niemitz , Mercedes W123, Mostard Yvonne (Bj. 1966)

'Of course, camping is great fun for the whole family', explains classic fan Jörg Niemitz from Unna. Five of the Niemitzens regularly spend their holidays in a four-meter-long caravan with a lifting roof made by the Dutch manufacturer Mostard in 1966. The tractor for the “Yvonne” model is a Mercedes-Benz W123.

Juliette and Dirk Carstens, VW-Bus T3 Joker, (Bj. 1984)

Juliette and Dirk Carstens from Flensburg have traveled around 150,000 km on various trips with her VW Bus Joker (T3) so far, most of them through France. The Bulli offers the couple the best compromise between being mobile and being able to sleep where it is most beautiful. Because traveling in a classic car was so much fun for the two of them, they founded the Oldie Camping Club (www.oldie-camping.de) with a few friends in 2006. For them thatBest about camping? The friendly cohesion in their club scene.

Anja and Hans-Georg Hogrebe, Volvo Amazon (1962), Eriba Pan (Bj . 1977)

Traveling to a classic and camping at the same time - for Anja and Hans-Georg Hogrebe from Lippstadt this is the ideal combination of two hobbies. Anyone who sees the obviously always cheerful couple sitting in front of their perfectly positioned Eriba Pan caravan does not doubt for a second that someone is here with full conviction. Candidate number four in the picture is a brave Volvo Amazon, built in 1962.

Thomas and Malte Bertram, Rapido Confort (built 1978 )

Thomas Bertram should be used to being the center of attention: As soon as the man from Blumenthal appears on a campsite and, with the help of his son Malte and daughter Maike, takes a furnished caravan from an inconspicuous trailer in a few simple steps conjures up up to six beds, there is usually general amazement. His folding caravan Rapido Confort from 1978 is a little masterpiece with a dead weight of less than 400 kilograms.

Herbert Brune, Suleica F 430, (Bj. 1965)

Completely made of GRP - the 'SUPERLEIIGHT CAravan F 430' with self-supporting body by Herbert Brune from Ennigerloh weighs just 560 kilograms with a length of 4.30 meters. A special highlight of the superbly preserved caravan from 1965 is the Rialto wall pattern. The name Suleica, which is still used today, instead of the cumbersome name super light caravan, is a creation by Fritz B. Busch.

Rainer Neuendorf, Autodachzelt Touricamp (Bj. 1955)

Rainer Neuendorf from Kaarst sometimes prefers a practical roof tent to his caravan on his many trips. In this case, a 50-kilogram copy from the manufacturer Touricamp from the fifties adorns his VW Beetle 1302 from 1970. 'Sometimes I just don't feel like pulling a trailer,' explains the camping and classic fan, who naturally still maintains the retail price at the time has in his head - 990 marks.

Monika and Thomas Boxberg, Hartmann FaWoBoo (born 1962)

Of course, Monika and Thomas Boxberg from Rösrath often have to explain the complex system of their FaWoBoo. The name alone: ​​FaWoBoo, which stands for 'foldable caravan and boat'. But the idea behind it is ingenious: a trailer with side walls that can be opened and the roof of which can be removed and used as a boat. Any questions?
