There are many 'Boots'. Did you catch all of these in the same area or the same day?

 

I got the impression over the years that during the summer months there's a lot of people travelling / living in these kind of vans visiting (or passing through) Berlin.

I'm not really familiar with the community, but I suppose Berlin really is the headquarter for these kind of buses; we just had a ton of those here after WW2 and they basically got repurposed when police, fire brigades, trades etc. got more modern vehicles and sold them cheaply. 

There are still several repair shops and DIY garage kind of things in the area that are dedicated to just these T2's.

I'm not sure what it is exactly that you're asking.

These Mercedes buses I post here are pretty much all T2's, as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_T2

I did paint one of those a while ago and fixed some little things, but apart from that I'm not familiar with the wa it's built, maybe image searching will answer your question?

Cool, this is exactly what I was asking.

Throw out a happy “isn’t this fun?” Every now and then to keep her not bummed

Lots of cool shit deep down on the Cape (cape cod, for you foreigners.) 

 

 

The surplus mail carrier. Probably a good score since many of them never exceeded 45mph during their entire service.

There's "Jesus Loves You!" (partly peeled off by now) on one side of the van and "Jesus is Coming Back!" on the other,

and on the door on the back there's a little sticker with a cool logo; I googled what it was and turned out it was some kink / fetish merchandise website from Australia if I remember correcly 💁‍♂️
