Classic Volkswagen Beetles have seen many transformations till date but there is no end to creativity and thus, a California man turned a 1965 Beetle into a teardrop camper. Teardrop campers are usually small and towable type of recreational vehicles. They tend to have a distinct shape, typically tapered on the one end.

Sergio's Blue and White Beetle teardrop camper took about four years to get to where it is now but there is still scope for more work to be done on this project. The front-end was chopped off to form the teardrop shape, and a few inches were removed from the top. The front of the camper was made from the fenders of another Beetle.
