The 1984 T2 ‘Happy Bus’

Name: Happy Bus


Year: 1984

Type: T2

Info: Joelle is the third owner of this 1984 Vanagon after receiving it from her late father. She admits that she has a love/hate relationship with the bus due to finding parts but when she’s camping and out on the open road – it’s definitely love! Her pooch Tazzy loves to ride in the back.

After the original engine took Joelle and her family three weeks around Manitoba and out to the west coast of Vancouver, Salt Spring & Galiano Islands, BC; in 2013 Joelle swapped out the original engine for a “newer” used one. 4 months after coming back from Saskatoon, it over heated and she had to get it towed. She bought another engine and finally after 3 years, the Happy Bus was on the road again (hence the love/hate relationship)
