You can buy a rolling Volkswagen bus cooler

VW bus cooler

Honk, honk — move over, Yeti. A fun new cooler that looks exactly like a classic Volkswagen bus is for sale on Amazon and it’s adorable.

You already know how fun it is to see VW buses on the road, so just imagine pulling up to a backyard barbecue or the beach with the Board Masters Volkswagen Cool Box Rolling Cooler in tow. (One reviewer on Amazon plans to bring it to a car show. Of course!)

The portable cooler does come with a hefty price tag, though: It costs $499.99. The cooler is advertised as being official Volkswagen merchandise — it even has the VW logo on the front — and it’s a scaled replica of the iconic 1960s-era VW T1 bus.


So what kind of amenities does a VW cooler have in store? It has fully insulated icebox storage to keep your food and drinks either hot or cool. With 26 liters/6.8 gallons of capacity, you can store your beer bottles, canned cocktails, soda or food and then use the drainage plug to easily let the water out at the end of the day. The cooler also has a folding telescopic handle, which makes it simple to transport, and steerable wheels also make it easy to maneuver it to your picnic spot. Plus, an anti-theft lock secures your food and drinks, and it’s made out of anti-rust steel.

Right now, Amazon says there are only a handful left. But if you love Volkswagen merchandise or are looking for a VW-themed gift, Amazon sells some more affordable options as well.

This insulated lunch cooler is $29.99 and looks like the front of a Volkswagen bus, modeled after the T1 Camper Van. The soft insulated cooler is sold in four different colors: Red, lime green, blue or pink.


Or, this smaller insulated lunch bag for $19.99 comes in blue, red, lime green or pink. This VW Bus would be fun to park in the refrigerator!


Do you have any VW fanatics in your life who would love one of these insulated coolers?
