May is upon us and this month’s issue is, appropriately enough, jammed with VW madness. Bus one is Uberbus’s mad take on a Swamper, not their first but definitely their best so far. Next is New Wave’s latest Crafter, built tough to take three Motor-X bikes and built luxuriously to take the riders and crew in comfort, the only thing mad about this is the graphics, and they are mad. Bus three is Dan Parker’s T5, this bus won the recent competition we held in conjunction with Morland for interior design and layout. The mad bit is that it has no rear sliding doors on either side. It may be mad but boy is it smooooooth! Our fourth feature bus is Richard Sparks’ T4, we even titled this feature “Between…

just kampers competition

The Just Kampers Open Day and Camping Weekender returns on 07 – 09 June, it sold out months ago, but thanks to JK you could still have a chance to go. This event may have started as an open day over ten years ago, but it has grown into something quite special. At its heart it’s a charity fundraiser and this year the charity is the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Charity (www.pth.org.uk). Over the weekend you get to chat with the JK’s staff, to see product demos, plus they hope to tempt you with some bargains. You also get to share their beautiful surroundings and relax with friends and family in a chilled environment. It is very popular and camping tickets sold out within a day of being released. Day visitors are welcome…

double swivelled

MS Craft is a family run business that was established in 2014 and they make an innovative and very flexible swivelling double seat base for the T5 and T6. The base is straightforward to fit and is designed to fit T5 and T6 vans with a factory fitted double passenger seat. Using the seat base once installed is very easy and it has one unique and very handy trick. Firstly, you simply unscrew five locking bolts then you slide the whole seat back into the rear compartment. This allows free seat rotation without any of the complicated sequence of tasks found in some other brands. Now, here’s the neat trick, if you have a camper, when the seat is in the rear and swivelled, you will discover that it can be…

Furniture pods aren’t new, but we rather liked this ‘new to the market’ Tpod when we saw it at Camper Mart. It’s a stylish, functional and versatile kitchen unit. Inside it houses two twelve-litre removable containers one for fresh and one for grey water. The fresh water supplies a Smev 8821 sink and burner combo mounted on top via a Comet Florenz tap. As well as those water containers, there’s plenty of room inside for a 4.5 kg gas bottle and still have space for your comestibles. The Tpod plugs into a standard 12-volt socket with a two-metre retractable cable to power the tap’s pump. Outside there are two detachable hinged tables, one on either side of the unit. When removed they reveal built-in handles that facilitate moving the unit.…
