Campsite Review: Hidden Valley Caravan & Camping Park - Near Ilfracombe, North Devon

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Anyone following me on Twitter will be aware that we have just returned from a great weeks camping in North Devon. We had planned to travel further afield but due to a heavy workload which resulted in a lack of planning we decided to spend the week surfing at Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe.

So we started googling and found a few campsites we liked the look of but as this was last minute most of them were either booked up or didn’t take dogs (as we were taking our 9 month old Cocker Spaniel Puppy, Murray). (more…)

Campsite Review: Tollgate Farm Caravan and Camping Park - Perrenporth, Cornwall

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Now we have our new shiny camper van we can now actually go camping! We kicked off the new season with a trip to Tollgate Farm in Perranporth, Cornwall. We chose this site as the website boasted beautiful dog walks through the dunes - they certainly didn’t disappoint!

Our pitch was level so no use for our brand new chocs! Our pitch looked out onto the dunes and surrounded by hedges and wildlife (the dog spotted several rabbits!).

We hooked up and after just a two hour journey the dog was egar for a walk! We were given a leaflet with several walks direct from the park and decided to take one through a golf course and sand dunes leading onto the beach. (more…)

My VW Camper Van Conversion - Completed!!

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Regular readers will know that I have been in the process of getting my recently purchased Volkswagen Transporter T5 converted in to a camper van.

Well last week I picked up my completed T5 Camper Van from Torbay Camper Conversions in Torquay and I have to say, I am chuffed to bits with it.

As I have previously mentioned, we have gone for ‘apple inspired’ white gloss look with black and grey leather seats which I think match the exterior of the van really well.

The conversion includes a sink, twin hob, grill, top loading fridge, power management unit, a RIB Altair 3/4 bed system, safe, 3 x spot reading lights on stalks, 2 x rotating strip lights, swiveling leather captains seats and a shower head unit at the rear (for cleaning the dog and the wetsuits etc).

My VW Camper Van Conversion - Progress update

Monday, May 9th, 2011

My VW Camper Van Conversion - Progress update

As you may or may not know, as the start of the year I finally made the decision on what VW van to buy (after having sold my VW T25 in February last year).

I purchased a VW T5 Kombi, so the next logical step was to find a company to convert it in to a camper van ready for us to use this summer. A few weeks ago we decided to use Torbay Camper Conversions based in Torquay. One reason for this was out of convenience as they are based a few miles up the road from us, but the real selling point was the choice of finishes for the camper interior. I wanted to be able to choose every aspect of the interior and was able to do so with the wide range of seat coverings, lining choices and furniture finishes available. (more…)

Our new van: VW T5 2.5TDi 4Motion Kombi

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Yes, after months and months of deliberation we have finally made a decision and gone for a VW T5.

The van is a 2007 T5 Kombi  2.5TDi. It is currently a Kombi so has removable seats in the back. It is the 4Motion version with 140bhp so is fairly nippy and great on the Motorway.

The van has leather seats throughout (which I will be selling shortly if anyone is interested) and is fitted with the electric pack (mirrors and windows) and has VW alloys.

So, what’s the plan? The van will shortly be going in to be converted to a camper (without a pop roof initially but that will be added later on) and then I am planning on getting some Carravelle bumpers colour coded and fitter along with colour coding the mirrors.

21 Awesome Flickr Photo Groups for VW Camper Van / Bus Enthusiasts

Whether it’s for inspiration for your own VW Van or just for fun, looking at other photos of VW Camper Vans and Buses is sometimes addictive. It’s great going through the ’show us yours’ sections on the forums and seeing what other people have done with their vans.
