    Son's partner's mother had her beloved VW Campervan stolen from outside her house overnight 27/28th Aug. It's a T25 Reg B343FWE. It's blue, a bit scruufy, scruffy steel wheels. She's been doing it up for the last couple of years with rebuilt engine, tidied up interior (blue and yellow checked curtains). Stolen from Wrexham. Any sightings contact your local police or Wrexham.

    A picture of the van would be good if they have one, VWs can look similar.

    Unfortunately she doesn't have one and as you say T25's all look the same, plain blue body with white side hinged roof.

    sadly its unlikely she will see her lovely van again.....well she will in every carpark in cornwall in the summer. there are literally thousands of them and often hand painted by the owners. finding it would be nigh on impossible without checking every VIN number
    hope she was well insured

    Oh that's a shame , good reg number though if anyone sees one like it , the insurance wont replace it though knowing them!! it goes on year doesn't take into account what you time and effort you have put into it. I hope she is lucky and gets it back.

    Reported in local paper that two campervans were burnt out last night in Wrexham within half an hour.

    Why oh why do people do that? Is it jealousy, or do they have a warped sense of humour.

    Really sorry to hear that, I have no idea what sort of mentality would do such a thing. Possibly just a bit thick in the head. A real shame..........

    sorry to say but think of it as a van that has little security
    probably no steering lock either or easily overcome

    much room in the back not much chance of police
    pulling it up

    then you have to think space for other peoples property
    transport it then destroy the evidence ( the van)
    get back in your own cars and go home after
    a night at work thieving

    dont think im far from the truth unfortunatly

    the beggers dont give dogs dropping for any one
    but themselves and a fix

    So sorry to hear that. Some people take any vehicle to get home instead of getting a taxi and then destroy the evidence........ I think @tofo might be correct though.

    If they catch the tw..s
    Strip them naked and stone them.
    Then cut them into pieces
    Then feed their remains to the hogs

    Or give them community service.
