Our man Hubert in Germany unearthed this month’s Welcome image in his trawl through local archives – it seems to be some kind of early sixties version of World’s Strongest Man! I wonder who won? With Health and Safety Police these days however, don’t expect to see the Bus Pull resurrected at Camper Jam! Some of you may remember the Split Bar Bus, aka The Dub Inn, which was a Class Winner at Camper Jam last year; originally a 1957 Panel Van, the owner has transformed the interior to an olde worlde pub complete with authentic fittings and even a fake brick wall and a dartboard! All that’s missing is the log fire! Another featured working commercial that has been given an innovative new lease of life is a 1989…

thoroughly modern mango!

A year and a half ago, they contacted Paul Mullinger at VW Downunder to see if he had anything suitable for sale, but at the time he had nothing in stock. It was agreed that if a suitable split was found, then a pre-purchase inspection would be done. “It had to be a RHD model, as Tahera doesn’t do a great deal of driving in any car, so I thought she’d be much happier behind the wheel of a RHD than a left hooker,” explains Paul. “He obviously doesn’t have much faith in my driving ability,” quips Tahera! As luck would have it, a suitable 1965 RHD Split came up for sale in the north of England. The split was a runner, it was road worthy, MOT’d and it was given…

contemporary campmobile

Aren’t those the ingredients of a successful recipe for many a pleasurable and comfortable holiday. Derbyshire based Paul and Emma Sweetman’s Campmobile has spent recent holiday time sunning its gleaming Sierra Yellow paintwork in shimmering blue sky France. Indeed it had only been back a few days from a 1,700 mile sojourn when we met. Paul and Emma aren’t into VW’s in a big way. Perhaps a confession is called for; Paul runs a dealership where South Korean wheels rule the roost, but when it comes to Campers perhaps Hanover fills the bill best. The Sweetman’s first was a T4, a 1.9TD, which was bought as a panel van and converted by Paul. He’s quite the handyman and what was on the market he didn’t rate, certainly at the prices asked. Anyway,…
