VW Camper melts


#1

No point having a radio in a VW camper :grinning:.

Split screen - for camping or cruising?


Everything must go
#2

Both, have decided to take 6 months off next year and drive from Spain through france and Italy to greece via bosnia/croatia


#3

That sounds fantastic. Good luck!


#4

Nice one Chris. If your van has one of those new fangled cassette decks in, I’ll do you a copy of this

I know, I know it’s a T3 on the cover, not a Splitty…


#5

My favourite LP of the year thus far…


#6

Can’t find it on tidal


#7

You can buy the download or simply listen to the stream.


#8

Cheers olan, is it available on vinyl?


#9

Yep, on Polytechnic Youth IIRC. Limited edition of 300 on orange vinyl. Long sold out though. There are none available on Discogs atm. Details here:

Not too expensive yet if you can source a copy.

I saw a fairly recent burned out VW camper parked in a village just along from us today. Water & fire retardant still running down the hill. It wasn’t parked somewhere where anyone would have been trying to cook in it.

I seem to recall LT31’s having a problem with fuel lines catching fire but surely VW have sorted all that out now???

4 years work = windfall.


#13

Split screens are lovely money pits


#14

And Narelle would have another in a heartbeat. That would be her sixth.


#15

£90K for a camper van CRIKEY!!!

I’d be buying a new transit van and having it converted to my spec and spending half that. O and it would be a load more reliable.


#16

£90k gets you close to “97” Astra estate territory


#17

£90k?! No fucking chance. It’s neither original or rare. It’s not even a Samba (with the roof windows etc). Dream on. As usual a drab kitchen has been expensively installed but which is largely decoration as most people don’t want cooking smells in their van.

Wishful thinking - will be interesting what the actual price is at auction.


#18

… but before you get there there’s a bang from the rear end and you’re on the phone to the AA. Again.

#19

On that note; Narelle’s first question when I mentioned Chris’s plan was, “Is he a mechanic ?” :grinning:


#20

Absolutely spot on. If he had gone for originality he might have had a outside chance. But £90000 is crazy. Just go for the latest VW for touring. Or a Fiat.
