When we set off on a CampervanCulture.com road trip we never really plan where we will end up or even head to on most occasions. Between the three of us we have built up quite a large list of cool places to stay as well as a bigger list of places we have been told about or have listed while passing on previous trips. Every video we have made never has a pre planned story board and we rely on random things that happen that you could never have found unless they were random.
This latest short trip was as full of randomness as usual but when we found loads of fossils, hung out with a massive group of Saxons, found a village that had been taken over by the army in WWII and has only been open to visit relatively recently and lots of it remains the same as it did back then, then bumped into CampervanCulture.com subscriber Tom and his amazing family in their Syncro Club Joker and we all camped out together in an epic camp spot, we had a random overload. It makes for a good video and we hope you guys like it and comment.
We are really happy to announce that we have teamed up with The Skylight Guy and CampervanCulture.com can now offer Westfalia skylights and replacement parts. We will be able to supply all of the UK and Europe and are aiming to be the cheapest too. You can buy directly from the web shop, we take paypal, and we ship from the UK so postage should be attractive for everyone.
At the moment, we have limited stock of:
OEM Double Skin Skylights
Westfalia Skylight Lifting Arms
Skylight Mechanism Cover in Grey or Beige
Westfalia Single Skin Skylight in Smoke or Copper
Westfalia PopTop Skylight seal
Westfalia skylight lift knob in Cream or Grey
Complete VW Westfalia Skylight Install Kit
All you guys on the other side of the pond still get to buy from the best supplier of Westfalia skylight parts via The Skylight Guy. Both Jake and Jed have had the single pane skylights fitted to their vans for over a year now and they are amazing, the fit is as good as original. Ideal if you have a cracked or leaky skylight.
” My wife and I are changing our set up a bit which means I will be around for the kids a bit more as well as going part time self employed. Unfortunately the company car will go so my current ‘leisure vehicle’ will become my daily driver. As I will be doing quite a few motorway miles for work and to visit family up country, it doesn’t make sense to be pushing the Syncro up and down the M5, so I am going to have to get something that is a bit more modern and that I am bit less precious about. So for sale is my pride and joy…..” Continue reading →
It has been an interesting process reviewing the Gelert pop up kettle.
As many of you know we are planning a North Africa trip and I personally thought it might be good to find a good supplier of some of the things we need and buy things from one place. We tried a seller via Ebay and we got disgusting service from www.camping-online.co.uk that was so bad the owner told us to f*** off when calmly voicing our concerns over the product they sell. One thing is certain, the owner is a moron….
www.gelert.com have some good products and I have used some bits and pieces by them and thought they are as good place as any to find a good pop up kettle. Their customer services were spot on when I had to contact them about the moron at Camping-online LTD and they advised me on my rights as a consumer. They were sympathetic about my concerns about the 2L kettle I had bought and were interested to share them with their development team, so here goes.
After a very cold start to this year we were finally blessed with some sun shine, although it is still quite windy and cold at night. It was time to hook up with some good friends we had not seen for a while for our second Gower camp out in South Wales.
The first night was a wild camp and after an early morning walk we were in for quite a treat due to the unusual cold weather for this time of year. What am I on about? Check out the video to find out….
