It is safe to say that we are very very excited!

Picking up Bella from Brazilian Kampers in July - after she is registered in UK, passes some tests and has a SPACE roof fitted.

Some stats:
Brazilian Kombi
2012
Water-cooled
LHD
16,000 miles
6-seater
Turkish green

Jayne and I have 2 little ones - Finn (6) and Emily (4) and we're based over in Northern Ireland.  Planning to take the tunnel over to France as soon as we collect Bella.  Firmly in shopping mode now to kit her out!  Any suggestions about tips for France and general newbies like us are greatly appreciated.  You all seem so friendly - can't wait to be part of the community!

Welcome, BMac - I'll bet you can't wait to pick Bella up.

We've been to France a few times - have a read of our Blog here:

Congratulations!

What colour canvas are you having on your Spaceroof? Matching or contrasting? Wink

Although I imagine 'matching' that colour with everything in the van could get a bit much. Currently looking at nice enamelware picnic set. Storage is very limited as we have full size rock-n-roll. The conversion is sweet though - the unit lifts right out of the van for some outdoor cooking if needed!

I've been admiring your Kombi on the VW Kampers website. It's fabulous. Do come to a club event sometime and let us have a proper look.

Think we are going to swap the fake wheel cover for a colour coded grille. Would love to come to one of the club events in the future. Thanks!

Was also thinking of getting a sun canopy and windbreak made using the same material that SPACE are using for the canopy - has anyone had any experience of doing something similar?
