Summer is coming!Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.ukAddress Editor, VW Camper & Commercial,Jazz Publishing The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJwww.volkswagencamper.co.ukStanford Hall is imminent as I write this – a sign that spring is here and summer is just around the corner!

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…

so – it’s a 44!

Described as the ‘kinderbett’ in a German language brochure, here’s the cab hammock for a childBlue White and Velvet Green make an ideal colour combination for a venerable 1960s SplittyLook at the roof and the front bumper and you would be right to think that this SO44 had an awning (or possibly two)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’.…

up to date brazilian style!

The T2c tailgate features a large, recessed chrome VW roundel.Re-trimmed interior and 12v/240v fridge.The thicker rimmed steering wheel is a logical development.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…
