I was searching 'VW Camper' on eBay today, as I often do, and this appeared in the listings .... looks familiar Wink

www.tourcraft.co.uk

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/teardrop-caravan-camping-glamping-custom-hotrod-vw-camper-trailer-folding-tent-/140846792397?pt=UK_Campers_Caravans_Motorhomes&hash=item20cb1f7ecd#ht_2099wt_1397

£4995 if bought direct via eBay but if you go to their distributors, one of them is offering it for £3995. Bargain.

As you say bargain - just don't tell Danbury!

I like the fact that they also have a range of accessories at really reasonable prices.

Very tempted.

When you say you sell that version too Jason, are you selling it for £3995 as well?

Quite like the look of this one, full of interesting features, (bed converts into a settee, and roof has solar panels etc in other vids) unfortunately doesn't answer the question if they are available in UK.

Prices between £8000 and £10,000

Been looking at those recently (GIDGET)

Out of all I've viewed they are one of the better ones and at the moment with the dollar as it is i would think they are a good buy. Obviously there is shipping involved and im not too sure about duties and taxes etc, but they are quite innovative.

In fact i was thinking of inquiring on here if anyone knows of a really good manufacturer of teardrops in the UK as i have had talks with 2 manufacturers recently as i am wanting to start retailing them.
But the problem arises that i cannot get them in volume as most of the manufacturers either produce them on a small bespoke scale or as a sideline to another main company.

So if anyone knows of a possible supplier for me, please let me have there contact details.

Had a quick look on their facebook page, and as a rough guestimate it costs about £1700 for shipping to US, not sure how that would compare to UK. Due to high demand, delivery is about 6 months from time of order.

Abs, i have bought a second hand one made by teardroptrailers. It really is great with a rear kitchen and a new blow up awning was thrown in with it as well.

We only gave £2500 inc the awning. Was going to have it wrapped but have decided to have a new one made now so will sell ours soon.

Dizzy, The GIDGET has really good write ups from everywhere but i think the company aren't as big as they portray, which seems to be the same for a lot of the manufacturers as ive found out.
