Jazz Publishing have sold VW Camper & Commercial Magazine to ADD MEDIA (07934307771).
The current issue, No 157, is out now and will be sent to those with existing subscriptions at Zazz.
Those subscriptions have NOT been taken over by ADD Media.

The first issue from ADD Media will be available in the shops, by phone or on-line and new subscriptions may be possible with them from their second issue onwards. It is suggested that it will fall back to being a Bi-monthly publication.
The new web-site is www.VolkswagenCamperAndCommercial.co.uk
It states there that they will continue to cover only air-cooled VW. Let's hope that all our T2 BraziBays might slip in.

Jazz publishing were part of the same group as Jazz Events, the organisers of CamperJam. I wonder if this will effect things to do with that?

I think the show income, now gone, was supporting the publishing side.

With Issue 157, ADD Media has at its own expense sent out copies to all those who had paid subscriptions with the now defunct Jazz publishing.

This issue tells us that for the immediate future the magazine will be bi-monthly starting from January.

It also says it will be dedicated only to air-cooled VWs with perhaps later water-cooled T3s.
As our BraziBays are T2s with entirely Split and Bay components a similar dispensation should be granted to our water-cooled models. Perhaps a letter to the Editor could mention this.


They make a pledge that any subscriptions to ADD Media would be re-funded if things go wrong.
If you have a VW camper this is the best magazine for you.
Please help to keep the magazine going by taking out a subscription.

osg - I’ve written a few articles for this magazine over the years, and helped them out by organising a display of our vans at Campermart ( https://c13mpr.com/2019/02/04/campermart-2019/ ). They’ve told me that they’ll still include our vans in the future but they’re not looking to cater for “modern” vans.

Absinthe
Thanks for the good news that all BraziBays will be considered relevant for future publications

Do hope we can keep the magazine alive by signing up for a subscription or at the very least buying a copy from the newsagent or on-line.

What has yet to be addressed, is when Warner's Group Publications (collect subscriptions for VWC&C - Volkswagen Camper & Commercial) are going to refund the remains of the £39.96 yearly subscription fee, for future issues of VWC&C which Jazz Publishing would have been publishing after Issue 156!?! If they don't refund £3.33 per non-supplied issue, I intend to investigate breach of contract clauses pertaining to contract law.

I renewed my subscription in August 2020, commencing with the August 2020 issue. I have the received the October 2020 issue (i.e. Issue 156), but not the August or September 2020 issues (i.e. Issues 154 & 155)!

I had two technical articles published in VWC&C as follows in 2004:

Nigel A. Skeet, "How To: Unmasking the Main Beam Warning Light", Volkswagen Camper & Commercial, Issue 16, Autumn 2004, Page 45.

Have received a letter from the old publisher (Jazz) with a reminder of my subscription number which is needed via a link to claim back unused payments.
It is promised that the re-payment will be made during the first week in December.

Pleased to report that a cheque arrived today giving rebate of my outstanding balance with the original publishers (Jazz).

Do try to support the new team by looking out for their first issue in January 21 or by going to their new website www.VolkswagenCamperAndCommercial.co.uk

Well at last I have a paper copy of the new magazine - Issue 1, January / February 2021 arrived by post today.
Both paper and digital editions are now availble on their website


VW Camper and Commercial



The new production team must be very frustrated by the current lockdown coinciding with the launch of their first issue

Please do support the continuation of this aspect of campervan life by heading to the website and buying either a single issue or better still a subscription to keep them going. They have already indicated that their content will include Brazilian Bays.

Do hope that you are supporting the small group who are trying to ensure the continuation of this magazine after the previous publishers pulled out

Just wondering if any of you have been able to support the new team who are trying to keep VW Camper & Commercial magazine alive in its new format?
Please do purchase the current March/April issue.

Is there any content relating to Brazilian bays in this issue?

Although they have said that Brazilian Bays are included in the new scope of the magazine there is nothing specific in this issue.
'How to' features on converting a vintage radio and on maintenance of the tail-gate could be a help ond of course recomended places to visit, bus history and new equipment.
Will keep a lookout for BraziBay features in the next issues

I tried to subscribe, partially in response to a comment earlier in this thread. Apparently the subscription system is not working yet and only issue-by-issue orders can be managed as yet.

Well I ordered up Issue 3 and it arrived today. It seems that as a new venture they are not yet allowed to offer yearly subscriptions - but this sort of contract will become available in the near future.

As it is now bi-monthly, Issues 4 & 5 are promised for 23 July and 24 September.

The new publishing crew had promised to cover Brazilian Bays and Issue 3 contains a six-page spread on Brazilian 'Peaches' visit to the Highlands

Details are given on page 25 of how to have your camper photograghed for the mag.
Also how to submit 500 words or so for their new section ''Bus Stories'

If you are a collector, you could start a complete run of the magazine from day one by ordering up the first three issues at one go.
