Coolers are essential for camping, road trips, beaches, and picnics. When my family would go camping every year, the coolers were the most important equipment to bring (aside from tents, of course). They not only kept the beers and sodas chilled, but they were also packed with perishables like meat for barbeques and milk for breakfast cereal. At night, the coolers doubled as critter protection. That is, until the raccoons learned how to open the coolers one year. After that, we stored them in the car trunk overnight.

Our coolers weren’t much to look at. They were a standard gray with a thick white lid. Their only added perks were the four cup holders in the lid, which were less useful when some wise guy thought he could grab something from the cooler with an open can of pop was sitting on top. Well, what’s camping without a lot of mess?  

The other little perk of these coolers were their wheels. However, the wheels were too small to trek the rough terrain of a camping site and the handles were too short for an adult to drag the cooler without bending down. Therefore, a cooler full of beverages and frozen food had to be carried around, sometimes by two people, and sometimes by one person eager to display their strength.

The cooler game has been upped since those days of raccoon-fending, soda-spilling, and weight-carrying. Plus, it’s got much more stylish.  

Introducing the Rolling Volkswagen Bus Cooler
