    If you couldn't have a VW camper in any form (no Split, Bay, T25, T4, T5 and any others I've forgotten/don't know about) what camper would you have?

    Would you go for a Bongo? Something older?

    I think I'd go for a Transit (or something similar sized) and convert it myself. I know it has no character but would be purely for practicality.

    My uncle hds a commer to cart all his kids around and I used to love that bus, he gave it to his two eldest sons to go 'exploring' europe (very exotic for the early 80's up our neck of the woods). They trashed it and part ex-ed it for train tickets back from Israel.

    if i had more money - space etc i would go for a converted Nissan Civilian.

    A friend of mine has one which he stripped out - its got 2 pilot seats in the front. A full sofa bed. Shower. Loo. Kitchen. Wood Burning Stove and more in it .....

    amazing things .....

    I'd also consider an LT35! O0

  9. If it did not have to be a camper, I have always had a hankering for a 2CV

    I don't own a VW Camper because I love to camp.

    I own a VW Camper as I have always just loved them to bits. The retro styling is what does it for me.

    If I couldn't own a VW Camper of any sort I don't think I would be bothered about owning another camper. However if I had to I would be tempted by a Commer.

    EDIT

    Actually sod it I would just have one of those massive American RV's like Robert De Niro has in meet the Fokkers.

    We had a 1974 Toyota Hiace camper by CI in for an MOT and it was beautiful. Customer was here so I couldn't snap away but it was really lovely.

    It was like this but brand new looking and the MOT man said it was spotless underneath. Having looked inside I'd have one.

  18. I liked that massive earth mover thing from TLB v2. It was massive but had one of the nicest interiors I've seen and an electrics control panel that would rival a space craft...

    You'd certainly never get stuck in the mud at Glast with it.
