Welcome Snowdrop (great name by the way) Hope you soon get sorted for the new season. As you mention the A36, are you down our way? Dizzy lives in Bradford on Avon. Cool Laughing

I dont think there is such a thing, there is always something that needs doing!

I think you either have to have deep pockets or be prepared to get out there with the socket set, or ideally both!

Welcome to the forum.

As said, there will always be some kind of problem, but that's part of the charm. The other option of course is buy a T5 that looks like every other van on the road.

The smiles more than make up for it.

Let the good times roll cheers

I know how that feels Wink

There is always something to grease, tighten, loosen, change or replace just a kombi way of life I guess Very Happy

Having owned old bays in the past I agree Dazdub.....They are a very simular vehicle to the braze bay but older technology...Everyone to their own though and most sensible fans just love VW's and the scene too... Very Happy

Welcome, Snowdrop!

Pictures, please Very Happy

There's no such thing as trouble free T2/Kombi camper even when it's brand new ha ha ha!

But it's not what the whole thing is about. Just enjoy life with it and have fun!

Hi from Aldershot.

Eva is a 2006 air cooled camper and has been relatively trouble free since purchasing her a couple of years back - replaced both batteries but that's about it so far.

Cool
