The VolksWorld Show is the UK’s largest indoor VW event, and the premier gathering on the annual VW calendar. Whilst the indoor displays remain traditionally air cooled, there will be additional outdoor display areas for water-cooled Transporters on the surrounding lawns this year. As the water-cooled presence has grown in recent years, the organisers have decided to re-shuffle the outside areas in order to bring the Transporters forward, and also make more space to fit in some clubs, too. And this is where you come in. If you organise or run a club and would like to display at The VolksWorld Show, listen up. Each club is allocated five vehicle spaces per day, meaning you can book to display up to 10 different vehicles over the course of the weekend. “We’re looking to…

apocalypse now

“the urge to make things out of old junk” With pretty much any vehicle ever built, you can only really ever guarantee one thing – different people will react to it in different ways. Speaking to Matt Redfern about his T4, I quickly realised he is more aware of this than most. He’s had over 100 night and day opinions on his Van, from young children thinking it looks like a spaceship or a Transformer, to old men thinking it was purpose built for some kind of military operation. And we suspect some less understanding ones, too. And then there’s me. Brought up on The A-Team, this Van takes me back to Saturday afternoons in front of the TV as a child. Fair warning. If you didn’t grow up in the ’80s and have…

leighton vans t6.1 open evening

“it’s clear T6.1 fever is high right now” The team behind Rotherham-based Transporter sales, tuning and conversion specialist, Leighton Vans, has always prided itself on never being too far from the cutting edge of the Transporter scene we all know and love. And so in the early part of December 2019, the company hosted an open evening to give loyal customers and fellow automotive businesses their first glimpse of the hotly-anticipated Volkswagen T6.1 Transporter. Even though the first examples of this facelifted Van had only been in the country for a matter of days at the time, Mike Leighton and his team pulled out all the stops and put on one hell of a show. Four T6.1s were in attendance for the evening, one of which had already been given the…

the volksworld show

The VolksWorld Show is Europe’s largest indoor air-cooled VW show, with hundreds of top quality cars displayed inside and outside the hallowed halls of Sandown Park in Esher, Surrey. There are also club stands, traders, a whole floor of swapmeet tables, live music and other VW-related entertainment throughout the duration of the show. If you want to make a weekend of it, why not come for the weekend and camp (pre-booking via the website is essential, you cannot turn up on the day and camp)? It’s the best way to enjoy the show at leisure and soak up the atmosphere. Make sure you bring the family too, because kids go free and there’s loads for them to do. By the way, early-bird ticket deals are running until the end of the year so…

Habitation frustration Dear VWt, Having enjoyed many years of caravan ownership, my wife and I have decided it’s time to look into a small motorhome as we’re finding it increasingly difficult to manoeuvre and maintain a full-size caravan these days. We’ve seen some very nice hi-top T5 and T6 conversions, which would suit our needs, but I’m concerned about the safety aspect of used, or older, conversions. I was under the impression that a motorhome fitted with gas hobs and / or heaters, fresh and waste water tanks and electrical accessories (12 / 240V, leisure batteries, RCD etc.) require regular habitation inspections – as per a caravan. These ensure they are fit for purpose and safe to sleep in. But having looked at a few VWs so far, I’ve yet to find a private…
