Hello and welcome to issue 107 of VWt. As I write this it’s Monday morning, it’s pissing down outside and it’s also deadline week, which as you can imagine is pretty stressful. I mean, it’s not being a paramedic or doing something where the world depends on you stressful. However, I couldn’t be happier. Why’s that? Is it a Bank Holiday or have I got new van parts arriving? Nope, it’s because it’s the morning after going to a show. I was actually fortunate enough to go to Early Edition, see vans, take photos, talk to people and have a laugh - until the heavens opened that is, well it is the UK! I knew I had missed having events in my life, but I didn’t realise quite how much. Last…

a touch of madness

Here’s a question for you: Do car guys become van guys, or is it a separate breed altogether? If you can switch, or at least become both, what would it take? I remember a lad who used to run around in a Ford Escort van back in my boy racer days (late ‘90s if you’re wondering!). It was peppermint green, had black windows and an RS body kit with matching wheels. At the time, I couldn’t understand why you’d choose a van. I mean, that was for work men and women. One night sleeping in a Bay Window after my tent blew away and I was hooked. For Luke Massy, owner and founder of Plush Automotive and ABP (Air By Plush) there was a little more peer pressure involved. However, when…

BONJOUR MES AMIS Hey VWt, I am on the other side of the pond near Paris and for more than 10 years I have been cultivating the art of riding in a T5. My first was a T5.1 Bitdi 180hp, when I sold it, it was 230hp and very well equipped. Then in July 2018 I switched to a T6, which I’ve spent lots on. It’s a 204 TSI 4motion DSG with lots of mods. If one day you want to come and do a report from our side, you would have the exclusivity of my bus because every month I literally devour VWt. Pascal Lecuyer via email VWt: Bonjour Pascal, it’s great to know that we have readers on the other side of the Channel. We’d love a trip France right now that’s…

Hi Glenn & VWt, I just received issue #106 in post. What a great effort! I love the magazine with some great vans (not all the same) and loads of editorial in other areas - accessories and life with your camper. Well done to your team. I will definitely be keeping my subscription! James Clarke via email VWt: Wow! Thanks James, it’s always great to get feedback, even better when it’s positive and shows we’re steering the mag in the right direction. It definitely makes the late nights worth it. Got something to share? e-mail me at glenn. rowswell@ kelsey.co.uk…
