As usual we have six fabulous features for you this month. 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.

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.
