Well Christmas is finally upon us and a lot of people use the time to reflect on the year just passed. We could have done that; we could have filled the issue with a rehash of 2019 and knocked off early. But where’s the fun in that? Instead we’ve doubled down and brought you an issue jam packed with new stuff. I’ll admit that our Bus Of The Year competition starts in this issue and that does deal with our favourite buses of 2019. But that’s hardly a rehash, it’s more a celebration of excellence. Besides, that’s only two pages, the other 98 are as fresh as the other side of the pillow. So, here’s what we have for you: T4-wise we have the coolest school bus out there, Lee Gambling’s T4…

Camper Mart Display Buses Required Camper Mart approaches, the tickets are already on sale and we are now organising the buses for the inside displays. We are looking for some cool buses that will interest show goers. Last year we increased the number of buses on display inside, we also instigated a new show and shine competition held outside. You can enter both, although clearly, we will only approve one of the applications. So, if you have a Transporter of any age, from a Split Screen to a T6, a Crafter or a Caddy and you think it would look good inside (or outside) the halls at the Telford International show then let us know. The show will be held on 2nd February and if you want to buy tickets, apply for…

To be honest I actually built this for Kerry, my wife, as her daily driver and even the kids say they have the coolest mum ever to be driving around in a Doka,” admits Lee Gambling - the boss at VanCon Conversions. Apparently it’s an ideal VW for the school run and shopping, and of course it can also be used for business too as it’s perfect for picking up sheets of ply or the odd Rock & Roll bed. And it’s not a bad company demo van either. Especially for a company that’s only been up and running for a year. Lee has only been into VWs for the past six years or so. Before this Doka he had a lovely Batman-themed green T4 which was featured by VW Camper…
