Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.uk Address Editor, VW Camper & Commercial, Jazz Publishing The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJ www.volkswagencamper.co.uk Stanford Hall is imminent as I write this – a sign that spring is here and summer is just around the corner! For me it’s always preceded by the annual SSVC get together at Victoria Farm prior to the legendary Split Bus convoy down the A5 to the show. Whilst we no longer are able to take part in the convoy it still stirs emotions to see so many old buses trundling down the road as far as the eye can see! We took advantage of what promised (and turned out) to be a very unseasonal hot and sunny weekend just before Easter and headed off to the North Norfolk coast in the California and used…

so – it’s a 44!

Let’s be honest, extant examples of the Westfalia SO42, produced between 1965 and ’67, are ten-a-penny. They are well designed, beautifully crafted and good ones are worth a fortune, but whether built for the European market or offered as a Campmobile in the USA, survivors are numerous. Not so the sibling SO44 as featured here, and perhaps best described as a bulkhead design. Thanks to the substantial, even overbearingly bulky, piece of furniture which houses washing facilities and ‘cool-boxes’. There’s also a full-length wardrobe, both of which are sited immediately to the rear of the bulkhead and totally dominate the internal layout. Access from the cab to the living area is simply ‘verboten’. With, in essence, all the furniture to the fore, there is plenty of room in an SO44 for the…

up to date brazilian style!

The fun part for me has turned out to be how we have made the bus our own with many personal touches. I had originally seen the camper for sale on ebay and had enquired about its service history and condition. I went down for a look and took it for a test drive. Even though the interior was a ‘little bit dated’, I could see the potential and a deal was struck. It was an interesting experience driving it back along the M6, there was a lot of weaving about!” The T2c is the final incarnation of the T2, made in Brazil with a noticeably taller 10 cm raised roofline. The bus is a 2001 T2c. For readers unfamiliar with the nomenclature, the T2a is the ‘early’ bay, the T2b is…
