Hello and welcome, I do not own a globecar but have followed the forumatic and it is a shame it has closed down.

Hi from a Campscout owner. We had to get a dent taken out of back door tops so lost decals, now wondering whether to replace or not bother.

I can think of better reasons for replacing a van ... are the ashtrays full too? ;)

We have a warranty claim in for some new decals for our (2015) van so once approved we'll just get the old ones taken off and won't put the new ones on as we prefer them without, we'll just leave lower rear quadrant shaped ones on and possibly the globe and name, but everything else will come off. Below is a photo of our van at present and a couple of mock-ups of what it'll look like with most of the decals removed but the globe left, and one without the globe.

We will shortly be down sizing from an Auto Sleeper Broadway EB and we are thinking of getting a Globcar, Pat and I fancy the Limited with the port holes.We live in Staffordshire what dealers do you recommend, I've seen advertised dealers in Preston and Newark, the one in Scotland is to far for us, are there any others anyone could recommend.

Looks fine without the decals, think it's a globe and campscout that missing from back doors. For some reason I'd like it to look like the van we bought but suppose we could get different ones. Any spare ones lol.

Think I

We heard a week or so ago that the decal replacement has been approved so once they are received by SMC we'll take the van there and let them remove them and just leave the new ones off.

I assume it's the ones on the top of the left door that you're missing as shown in the picture below? I suppose you could probably get them from a dealer but not sure what they'd cost. Sorry, can't 'spare' any of ours as want to keep them in case a new owner wants to reinstate them in the future, whenever we decided to sell the camper which I don't think will be for a while!

Maybe I'll just get an orange sun. Similar to your reasons, would like to have in original condition in case we sell in the future.

I'm only keeping them simply because we'll be having virtually all of them removed, if it was just a small bit on the rear that no-one except a Globecar aficionado is likely to notice is missing, I wouldn't worry ... you could put one of these on ...

Great to see a globecar area setup. I watch with interest as this grows.

Having been a previous fan of the globecar forumatic site, I'm curious if anyone has any information on whether the site has been amalgamated with the German globecar / possl site yet as previously mentioned?

Failing this would it be possible to contact the forumatic site owner and see if he would consider loading the wealth of information onto this site?

Thanks for the link, the Facebook page comes in a pretty poor second place compared to the previous site unfortunately.

Yes, I know. I only posted it for you as you seemed interested in contacting the guy to see if he would upload stuff to here :confused:;)

Hi

Welcome from us too

Just in case any Globecar fan is not aware of this site
https://poesslforum.de/
It works ok with Google Translate
Like Fun if you register there are extra bits you can access
Lots of specific Globecar info and most of it makes sense when using translate

As Vanman says, great camper vans the best we've had in the 6 vans that we've had.
Welcome Phil.
