The cab is light and airy, very tasteful and welcoming.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.

the glove box story…

The Westfalia interior furniture is still in good shape.Sometimes white wall tyres work and sometimes they don’t. Here they do a fine job with the pastel white wheels.Bamboo parcel trays mounted under dash from Airhead parts in Ventura CADave 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.
