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.

This is the last in the series covering the aftermath of a serious gearbox failure. In this episode the box is put back together and we get up close and personal with all the parts of a locking differential.
I sincerely hope that none of you ever end up in the situation that brought about the creation of this video series, but if you are unlucky enough to experience something similar then hopefully these movies will at least give you a bit of an insight into what may have gone wrong and what is required to put it right.
“This syncro Atlantic is as good as you will find with all the options bar air-con! ,the underside is in near perfect condition & rust free as is the rest of the vehicle and with circa 12 ever made it’s a real gem and extremely collectible i very much doubt you will ever find a better example…it even smells new!!!…. “
