Christmas Opening Times

We will be closed between December 23 and January 7 (reopening Monday  January 8).

Yes, we will all be taking a well earned break over the Christmas and New Year period to spend some time with our respective families (and hopefully get some much needed camping time squeezed in).

We will be keeping the webshop open during this time, so you can still while away the drunken hours on Boxing Day buying yourself the “gifts” you’d been hoping to get for Christmas, but didn’t ūüėČ

Any orders placed during this time will be dispatched the week commencing January 8.

The phones and email will be off with all correspondence being dealt with on our return.

May we just take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the last year. We really do appreciate it!!

Have a very Happy Christmas and New Year. Jed, Dan and Lou.

The headlight prototypes have been running around the UK for a good while now under top secret conditions (actually not really, they have been on full view the whole time but they are that good nobody noticed 😉 ) and production has been underway and due to land with us at CVC ready to ship out at the end of January 2018. Stock will be limited so we are giving you the unique opportunity to pre order a set.

Remember USA customers who spend under $799 don’t pay import duty if they buy from us and you don’t pay the UK VAT at 20% so this is especially amazing for you guys even before you consider the epic exchange rate you get just now.

UK you still get an amazing deal and a chance to own what has been up until now the holy grail of VW T25 parts.

On the continent? You guys get a excellent exchange rate with the Euro v Pound right now too and we give good shipping rates.

If you would like to take advantage of the pre order cost please order via this product category page, https://campervanculture.com/product-catego…/vehicle-parts/…/

There are only so many that are being produced so don’t miss out. Oh, and you might want to tag your friends in this to share the love so they don’t miss out too.

If you have any questions or queries drop us an email.

Please note that the headlight image is for illustrative purposes only.

My Favourite VW T25/T3/Vanagon Mods and Upgrades Pt 1

I’m sure a lot of you will know these already. New owners… maybe not. So here are a few of my favourite, subtle upgrades that make a world of difference.

They’re things I’m so used to now that if I ever bought another van I’d make these changes straight away.
