flexible friend?

Despite hoping that everything would be gradually getting back to nearer normal by now, times are still a bit uncertain. And we’re all suffering. So, first of all – thanks for sticking with us during this craziness. What hasn’t helped is that with shop closures and restrictions, getting hold of Camper&Bus hasn’t always been easy – which is why we’ve started selling magazines direct. If you tap shop.kelsey. co.uk/subscription/vwc into your browser you’ll see how easy it is. Better still, save money and check out our subscription offer this issue on p44 as there’s nothing like getting the latest issue land on your doormat each month on a regular basis. Sadly, often the first things to go when times get tough financially is the stuff that somehow seems superfluous, or carry…

Ted Scheumann hails from Los Angeles and has been into old VWs most of his life; he’s part of the Bus Bros club (@bus_bros on Instagram), who are active in the SoCal area. His personal Instagram is @shooman_t. Ted is a carpenter and cabinet maker by trade, which set him up well to build such an awesome interior inside his Panel. The Panel is his perfect camping vehicle, which makes him relax as soon as he gets behind the wheel; his family love camping in the Bus too and, living in the sunny climes of Southern California, they get to enjoy it most of the year.…

top roadtrip destinations

According to research by insurance company Uswitch, over 32,690 Google searches on UK road trips and driving holidays were made by Brits in June and July alone, suggesting we’re all looking for some staycation inspiration. It seems most of us were keen to pop on our swimsuits and head to the beach this year with Woolacombe, the iconic seaside resort on the coast of North Devon, proving to be the most Googled road trip destination in the last two months with over 1,500 average monthly searches and a 154% increase when compared to the same time last year. Close by, Cornwall and Newquay have also seen a staggering increase in search volume. Interestingly, the term ‘Cornwall road trip’ is receiving a notable amount of attention right now, with over 6,100 searches –…

wheelchair friendly

From: www.koller.co.uk How much: £317.52 Koller has designed the first commercially available wheelchair restraint exclusively for the iconic VW Transporter, helping to make it easy for owners to travel safely. The innovative EXCEL Aries combined wheelchair and passenger restraint has been specifically engineered to fit VW T5 and T6 Caravelle rails allowing the vehicles to become wheelchair friendly by simply removing or repositioning rear passenger seats. Crash-tested to ISO 10542, the EXCEL Aries has several benefits perhaps most notable, is that no vehicle modifications are required as it simply fits into existing rail. Precision machined carriages provide secure anchorage in the rails giving peace of mind and quick release tie-down fittings allow for fast release if required. As simple to use as a standard seatbelt, EXCEL Aries includes the TITUS passenger harness for maximum comfort…

Ben and Anwen Freeman, 1968 Bay Window “She’s our holiday wagon and we take our children away as often as we can” We bought our ’68 Bay in 2009 as a restoration project from a friend who lived locally to us in West Wales. It was a bit ropey before we took a grinder to the bodywork and in total we spent just over two years getting it up to a level that we were happy with. Unsurprisingly, there were plenty of bodywork repairs to be done. Once we’d got looking a bit straighter we set about fitting air ride suspension, with the controls mounted just below the dashboard. You see, when the suspension was originally lowered the ride was too harsh, so we fitted the air ride for comfort and to allow…

when the tough get going...

If you want to get into niche vehicles you could do a lot worse than focus on the VW scene. Classic car snobs have long looked down, and continue to do so, on anything with a VW roundel. Cheap, utilitarian transport that’s weird to work on, underpowered and with an engine that’s in the wrong end they say. Utter piffle, as we all know. So, if you’re into old Volkswagens, you’ve already immersed yourself in a niche car scene to begin with. And once you’ve dipped that first toe in the water you’ll find yourself in a niche within a niche, because there are all manner of little automotive cul-de-sacs you can drive down if you get into Splits, Bays, T3s and the like. And then (!) you can lose yourself…
