VWs are what got me into campers and eventually mhs - anyone else start off this way?
Never actually owned one but JC has fixed hundreds over many years
Not in that game anymore......building engines for them is far less hassle
I beleive that several members have owner VW's and I know my good friend Geo has had something to do with one or two
Hopefully he will be along soon and answer you
my very first van was a V dub .. "Q" the music.. :thumb::thumb:
Great vans and even greater memories of surfing trips to Cornwall in the late 60s.. moved on a bit since then.. and less hair but still passionate about all things motorhome.. :Cool:
Hi Jacko Yes Keith's right I've had three type 2s two were home built, there was many a proper plan available for converting your own in those days and I personally did two, the first one was pretty basic but every thing was there, the second I bought a secondhand pop top with two upper bunks and cut out the roof and fitted it, boy was my hands shaking with the old jigsaw they were K and L reg's
then I went all posh and bought an old F reg Danbury conversion, many memories of tramping all over Wales with a mate (Glyn), and his family, he had one as well.
my two fondest were being Breathalyzed at 5 AM at the top of a welsh mountain after being followed by plod and calling him every thing from a pig to a dog over our Cb's only to discover he was listening in
Then on another occasion when i blew my engine a squirted 1/2 gallon of oil all over Glyn's windscreen and front panel, I still say he was too closehappy Days
Should have had a front engined model Geo
went from a tent to a VW T4 Caravelle, had it fitted with a fiamma zip awning which doubled our living space, but once the bed was made up you had no inside space and no heating in winter! Now took deliverey in April this year of an 07 Avondale Seascape FBX and now enjoy the fixed bed, seating area and a loo and central heating and hot water, we think we are now in Heaven!!!
Were'd yer find that??Can't be, no way
Its a C Class Beetle......
Good....innit - got it as my avatar now - thought it suited the Company profile to a tee!
Tent To Vw
We went from camping to VW 28, we called him Chunkie, we had it for 10 years, and we roamed all over Scotland, England, and Wales. He was an entrepid wanderer, and he left us with lots of happy memories. ah!
What's that then Linda, Slow, Smoky, Clapped Out and air Cooled?????
I just know I'm gonna pay for that oh:
You got the "Smoky" (as in Bensons) and Air Cooled bit right.......I am working on your punishment for the rest
See you tomorrow
Looking forward to it
Got JC's B&H by the way......
