There are a lot of VW camper van buyers guides out there BUT not to check if YOU are suitable for ownership.

There are many out there who have the money to buy a Classic Type 2 or Brazilian and expect that they are modern cars as they are new or cost in excess of £20K.

They then spend time moaning about the reliability, lack of speed, lack of power steering etc. from a camper van which design has basically not changed since the 1960-70s.

Maybe this suitability test is to check if your suitable.

Mmm .... I got 58% on that which according to the grid makes me mildly suitable! I'd dispute that. scratch

Nice idea Steve, but I think the stance of a good proportion of the questions is negative and I suspect you'll find a lot of owners here falling into the same category that I have.  If the quiz had included a lot of the things that bring joy to owning a BraziBay, ie. meet new friends, go places you wouldn't have before, draw a crowd, stop traffic with a convoy etc.  you'd get a more realistic picture.

Let's see how others get on!  Basketball

58% and I agree, all very negative, not to mention biased toward 'classic' rather than Brazilian.

Many of the answers I gave are also the reasons we bought a Brazilian rather than a 'classic' ie, to avoid all of the extra 'features' that owning a classic brings - oil on your drive, going slow etc etc

So based on the scores so far, that gives an average of 63%.

Indicating that on average, owners here are 'suitable.'
