First Euro Trip - Ninove, Belgium 2014

Discussion in 'Europe' started by asvw88, Mar 19, 2014.

  1. Well I have just returned from my first euro trip of this year - Lincoln to Ninove, Belgium and back just over 700 miles. I went down for the Freddyfiles 2014 VW show in the town on March 16th but made a 4 day trip of it. The camper went great never had any problems what so ever apart from my tail pipe bracket rusting off - no biggy! - having only owned her 4 weeks I thought this would be the tester trip - I am deffo going to Europe later in the year!

    the show itself featured over 1000 aircooled motors from all over Europe - some of the best aircooled I have ever seen - comments welcome !

    here I am in Lincoln ready to do the first 200 mile stint to folkstone, dover

  17. yeah the bracket with the 2 bolts broke off needs new one welding on really - the wire holds for now!
     
  18. A group of friends went this year and had a good time too! I was a tad envious! Your photos are great!

    I'd have liked to go, but think I'll stick with the alternate year EBI trips........in theory warmer weather in June/July!! ;)
     
  19. Looks like a great trip. My mate Mark was over there in his low light ghia.. came away with an award which was well deserved.

    The black/cream split is mark pindar - epic build thread on ssvc - that bus had more rust and holes than metal when he got it. Looks fab now.
