VW Bus T4&5+ No. 82

This is the only magazine dedicated to the late model VW buses from the T4 and T5 on. The magazine acknowledges the evolution of the VW bus and spotlights where this symbol of freedom and adventure has now arrived: the T4 and T5 - taking their rightful place in the family of VW models and carrying on the tradition of quality and innovation that is the ever iconic VW Bus.

Russell Walker’s ‘Vision In Red’ is a stunning T6, it’s been through several incarnations in its short life, now riding on air it is one cool ride. David Gray’s ‘Sweet Sixteen’ is a blue T4 that has also been through a few changes in its time with the owner, sixteen years… Alpine’s black T5 is a bus built for a purpose, to showcase their audio products. It has a few tricks up its sleeve, including a few unexpected ones, another bus on air ride. Martin Woodhouse’s Yellow T4 is yet another bus to have gone through the evolutionary process, from AA van, through to a gardener’s work van for Martin’s business, then on to quirky camper for his family.…

vision in red

Disappointing customer service lead Russell Walker away from his usual dealership and through the doors at VW. The original intention was for the brand-new Kombi to be a simple daily driver.

If you’re unfamiliar with the WASP appellation it stands for Wheels and Styling Package and is offered by Swiss Vans as an upgrade option. I asked Russell about how the journey started. “I’d always wanted a camper, I’d looked at Split Screens and even came close to buying one.

camper calling

OMG! My favourite band - From The Jam - were on the list to play at Camper Calling; I’ve seen them many times before, but never outdoors at a festival so this seemed the perfect time. A begging email to my mates at Moores Campers, you may recognise the name from all the step-by-step features in this magazine, secured me one of their new T5 pop-top hire vans for the weekend. It’s a ‘Start’… My wife even said she’d like to join me, even though she’s a festival virgin and pretty much allergic to portaloos. However, I am glad to report that her greatest fear - the toilets - coped with the crowds very well. The location was Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, where both the previous Camper Callings had been held -…
