Wilderness Adventure Camping In Wales – One from the CVC archives

This is one of the first videos we ever made a few years ago when CampervanCulture.com was just a couple of mates goofing around in our 4×4 VW Syncro camper vans. We put it onto Youtube but due to some copyright issues (Yeah, Youtube can be annoying like that!) it has only been available to watch in the UK. Because Vimeo is amazing we are able to share this video with the rest of the world and this is why we now choose Vimeo to host all of the videos on our web site rather than Youtube.

Remember the best way to get updates on the videos we make via email for free is to subscribe to the CampervanCulture.com website on the right hand column of our home page.

We hope you guys and girls like it and feel free to comment.

A weekend wild camping in Wales with VW Syncro vans from the CampervanCulture.com archives. from CampervanCulture.com on Vimeo.

Syncro Weekend Offroading Trip – mechanical failures galore!

A weekend away with some fellow CampervanCulture.com subscibers turned into a mission when the vehicles suffered mechanical failures – 3 driveshafts, 3 cv joints, 3 cv boots, broken steering rack, one slashed tire and one snapped drop link!!

It was a case of bad luck for one of the vans owned by Syncro nut and now CampervanCulture.com partner Alan Hayes in his RHD 1.9 mTDI panel van/camper that had most of the issues that contributed to us taking 13 hours to do the Strata Florida trail / greenlane in South Wales. We have got to give Freds Garage a big THANK YOU from CampervanCulture for bailing us out and coming to the rescue by allowing us to use the workshop and a ramp to get sorted as well as providing Alan with a steering rack, CV joints and good old moral support to get things moving again.

Freds Garage is run by a great bunch of guys and fellow CampervanCulture subscribers that do everything from MOTs to servicing and repairs on any campervan and can be found at,

Despite the dramas a great fun packed weekend was had as its not always about the driving but the laughs you have with mates doing it…

Syncropendence, an annual Syncro gathering.

It was that time of year again where the UK’s Syncro owners got together up a mountain in Wales for some fun and games. This year had a 2wd presence in the form of a single cab van that was converted into 4wd by amateur mechanics and named it The Horse….
