    Hi all

    I am hoping to pick everyone's brains

    I find myself without a van for the first time since I was 19 and we are pursuing vans that fit our requirements

    We quite fancy a James cook or a westfalia bug nugget and am looking at importing from Germany to get the van we want. We also have been looking at karmann colorados on a t5 vw.

    Does anyone have either it any experience of them , or even better know where one is that we can look at in the uk ??

    Or does anyone else know of a 4 berth 4 seatbelt van under 5.7 meter long ??

    Thanks

    Daniel

    We went to look at a Westfalia last year at Lowdhams, might be worth looking on their website or ringing them?

    Bought a new t5 Colorado 600 from Germany last year,you are more than welcome to have a look, we are in Kent but fairly close to m25
    Very happy with it, and very comfortable to drive

    Just had a look at yours and very nice bit of kit , from a practical point of view a high quality PVC conversion such as yours ticks most boxes , and I am very envious of the PVC drivers when trying to slither through Cornwall and trying to park up in town, Hope you have many comfy trips in your new wagon

    Thanks !

    Our isn't a new one but has everything we need Except the winter pack ,needs to be smallish as I use the van as my car for work etc

    Would have liked a newer can but good price right spec etc won me over.

    Hopefully not a downsize too far...
