With a month of hot sunny weather and record temperatures preceding, we knew we were in for a bumper weekend. I don’t think I will ever forget seeing 1000+ people sat in the sun watching England on the big TV screen on Saturday afternoon, or hearing the roars that went up round the whole Park when England scored! I took a tour of the whole site (on a buggy) and simply could not believe how vast it was or how many buses there were! A full report and the pictorial supplement is in next issue – Camper Jam 2018 will go down in the record books…

David Mitchell continues, “My wife Judith and I attended a car show in the North of England early in 2015, it was when we came across some VW Split-screens on display, that I admitted to Judith that I’d always hankered after owning a campervan. Literally two weeks later, we became the proud new owners of a 1967 Type 2 SO42.” That’s pretty quick in anyone’s book. Many enthusiasts can pontificate for months, sometimes even years, on researching models and specifications, then spend further weeks and months sourcing and viewing potential purchases.

the glove box story…

Dave James had been looking at this bus for years, and was elated to finally buy it from the original owner who was his neighbour. “I told him that when he was ready to sell the bus to let me know. That day finally came in 2007. It had taken him and his family on two cross country vacations, had taken Boy Scouts on adventures and had been the chase vehicle when he was a competitive cyclist. “It was still in pretty good shape but needed to be spruced up, so I took everything out of the bus including the windows before I sent it out for some minor body work and a paint job. While it was being painted, I cleaned up all of the aluminium window frames with steel…
