    I would like one of these also! Are they reliable? Is insurance cheap?

    My parents have one, they are awesome!

    Insurance is about £45 a month for theirs (they are both insured on it and have 25 years no claims), and they use it every summer. They use it to pull a caravan along and have the caravan for the facilities (fridge, toilet, oven/cooker etc) and storage and they use the campervan to sleep in and go touring if they park up the caravan at a camp site or something. I like it as it is surprisingly comfortable to sleep in.

    I've got one (see pics) :-)

    Ours costs less than £400 per year to insure, that includes full european breakdown cover. We've used ours plenty this year and she's been very reliable for us. She has the odd quirk, but then I think they all do :-) They don't half cost a fortune to maintain though!

    We got ours on ebay :-)VW Campervans-dsc00222.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00215.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00214.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00206.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00168.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00205.jpgVW Campervans-dsc00164.jpg

    Bear in mind they cost a fortune to keep going. I sold mine last year.

    Isn't going to be much help right now, but I've seen an add a number of times in the rear of Autotrader mag (maybe on the site too?) I get southern/thames valley but I imagine they'll advertise in all of them. In fact, why not have a nose on the AT site and filter for trade sellers. One of them is bound to make a career out of it

    Or
    VW Camper Crazy | Volkswagen Campers For Sale | VW Campers For Sale | Buy a VW Camper | Sell a VW Camper | Find a VW Camper
    The VW Camper Company Ltd 2011

    There's a load of companies hiring them out too.

    You missed a great VW show over the last couple of weekend where you could have stuck lucky with some contacts, there was the VW meet at Harewood house Leeds this weekend just gone and the previous one was VWNW at Tatton Park, certainly Tatton is a big meet for the VW Camper people and traders for them its really impressive how well they do.

    You can find them online in various places, and enthusiast forums are a good place to look as well I find. Danbury Motor Caravans - Danbury Motorcaravans - WELCOME maybe a good one as well

    Do not buy a new Brazilian bay without reading a post i did on the vzi forum, they are not all they look underneath.

    We are in the process of rebuilding a bay with oh dad. Will upload pics when it is back from the paint shop

    Used to love the VW Campervan we had as a kid, though I dread to think how much it costs for Deisel these days, as I recall it was one heck of a guzzler and only did about 3 miles to the gallon!

    If, like me, you have a delightful sense of the absurd, then you'll enjoy this:

    Can you post the enlinkment? The search doesn't work for non-members.
