The August 2012 issue of VW Camper&Bus is on sale Thursday 28th June 2012
Chocolate box – Bay Window: Things have moved on since Steve Johnstone used a new Bay Window as the daily workhorse for his confectionary business. This one’s purely for fun.
Vanity flair – T5: If Paul Teague’s heavily modified T5 is anything to go by, your perception of white van man might be able to change.
Bandwagon – Type 25: There’s plenty of people jumping on the Bus one these days, but few have a band to jump on board with them.
The watchman – Split Screen: You don’t just own some vehicles, you care for them, like John Ward with his so-original-it-hurts ’66.
Weed whacker – Bay Window: The most desirable Bay of all? A tin-top early Westy with original paint and an interior to die for. Oh, and slammed, too.
Product focus: Campers are perfect for enjoying the great outdoors, so here’s a selection of fantastic new gear to make life more comfortable and enjoyable while you’re out there.
Camperscene: What’s going on in the world of Camper and Buses.
Viewpoint: From student accommodation to tyres, here’s your month in letters.
Show Us Yours: From hi-top heaven to serious off-roaders, here’s a few of your world wild ‘wagens.
Back to mine: Jon and Julie Archer from Baldock present ‘Leonard’ the Camper. They love him!
Weekend Away: This month we head to Peppa Pig World (yes, really!) for a family break by the sea in a T4 California.
Road Trip – Jersey: C&B’s sub guy, Oliver Welch, had never been away in a VW Camper before. Jersey Camper Hire sorted him out and now he’s hooked. No surprises there…
On the road: VWs from around the world.
Hans Klapp’s Know your Campers – Top of the pop-tops: Last month our grizzled Bus nerd went off on one about Westy pop-tops so this month he turns his attention to other versions.
How to: Improve your cooling - If your single port air-cooled Bus engine is getting hot under the collar, then fitting a doghouse oil cooler will help it chill out.
Shop tour – G’day Kombis: Want a rust-free, right-hand drive Camper but don’t want to travel to Australia to find one? These guys are the answer.
Meals in wheels: Chicken and couscous is cheap, cheerful and colourful, too.
Trinket Pimp: The VW accesories that floateth your boat!
