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…)

Book Review: Uneasy Rider - Confessions of a Reluctant Traveller by Allie Sommerville

Back in March, the VW Camper Van Blog started a competition to win Allie Sommerville’s book “Uneasy Rider - Confessions of a reluctant traveller.”

To enter the competition all you had to do is tell us your funniest story in your VW camper van. The winner was Rick with his great story:

“To the britsh superbike round at oulton park in Lincolnshire we had everything well and truly packed in ready for our first adventure in our camper. The camper had only recently been finished, well when I say finished I mean just capable of housing us for a long weekend most of the significant details had still to be done but at least we’d got the pop-top on.

Officially Vanless!

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Officially Vanless!!

Well… I had intended to be publishing a blog post this weekend advertising my VW T25 Camper Van for sale. After 5 years of ownership I was feeling like I needed a change. I had been toying with the idea for a while and as I had originally wanted a Bay Window Van when I stumbled across my T25, the thought had always been in the back of my mind that perhaps I should have gone for a Bay instead.

This is not to say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed the time I have been a ‘wedge’ owner as I have. We have had many great holidays away in our Type 25 Autosleeper and have completed a great deal of work on the van over the last 5 years, so much so that the van is in much better condition now than when I bought it! I was just starting to get the feeling that I wanted a change.

My VW Type 25 featured in VW Camper and Bus Magazine

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

My VW Type 25 featured in VW Camper and Bus Magazine

Following on from my blog post back in December, I had another exciting moment in WH Smiths the other day. I had received an email from another VW Camper Van Owner (’68 Devon) congratulating me for my van being featured in this months copy of VW Camper and Bus. 

It was at that point that I remembered that I had sent in some photos a few weeks earlier thinking (or hoping) that they might be of interest. 

So I jumped in the car (which was blocking the VW on the drive and is much easier to park in town) and headed off for WH Smiths. I rushed in a grabbed a copy and ripped open the sealed bag and headed straight for the Readers Rides section.

You can never have too many VW Camper Van Friends

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

You can never have too many VW Camper Van Friends

No one can ever have enough friends, especially VW Camper Van and Bus enthusiast friends.

We are all part of the VW community, and you do not need to own a van to be part of it. You just need to have the same views as us, that you love VW Camper Vans and VW Buses. No matter what sort of van you own or aspire to own, be it Split Screen, Bay Windows, T25’s, T4’s or T5’s, we are all part of the VW scene.

There are a number of great online VW communities, some of them very specialist focusing on one sort of VW Vans and some quite broad which welcome any sort of VW Van owner.

To make the VW Camper Van Blog more of a community, we have been hard at work social networking so why not add the VW Camper Van Blog on the following social networking websites:
