We’re a bit Camper Jam crazy this month, unashamedly so. It was a belter this year so we’ve gone large on it this month. As well as the sixteen-page picture supplement there is a full four page report by Steve and even David is reflecting on the show in his column. Does all this Camper Jam frivolity detract from the feature buses I hear you ask? No, it does not! Did we charge you anymore for this issue? No, we did not! Bus 1 is Susie Mycock’s hot pink T5, a cool camper with a style of its own. Bus 2 is Ben Regan’s Volore blue T4, a mostly self-built camper designed with family adventures in mind. Bus 3 is Peter Hill’s stealthy six, subtle on the outside, unusual on the…

Fun In Odiham JK Weekender Update Back in June Just Kampers held their annual Open Day and Camping Weekender and the weather certainly tried to test the team.

The vibe is decidedly old school -slightly reminiscent of VW days long since gone, with a heady mix of village fair thrown in for good measure. With the “open day” itself taking place on one day only, the weekend is about as far away from hard sell as…

dad’s message

The plan was to buy a house with her then partner, when he became an ex-partner Susie Mycock decided to have a radical change in her life and the cash she’d set aside to procure the property was diverted to another purchase entirely. Susie has always had a love of cars and motorbikes. Her mum, Jackie, is also a fan and she taught her daughter how to drive and after she’d passed her driving test, how to drift a car too! Her dad, Andy, had always wanted a camper, but sadly they lost him when Susie was still quite young, but his idea never left her and she had always planned to complete his ambition and take it to see all the places he had wanted to go.
