We do like a good podcast here at CampervanCulture.com. Saving them up and listening to them while on a road trip is a personal favourite, especially if it is tied into something we like to do ourselves.

Loads of you will already know how we started doing what we do and how it was from very humble beginnings as there was just no plan and we some how fell into what we do now. Keara over at www.breakfreefromthe9to5.com has an interesting work blog where I guess the point is she can steer you in a direction you want to be going if you have an interest in working in order to support your own Vanlife while travelling on the road. I think listening to one of Keara’s podcasts could have come in handy for us back in the day before Vanlife became a thing.

It turns out that CampervanCulture.com had some inspiration in getting Keara’s Vanlife goals become a reality some how so make sure you check that podcast out via this link and check out how she may be able to assist you with where you would rather be. www.breakfreefromthe9to5.com

Managon truck tour from Live Work Wander

We met up with our friends Jorge & Jessica from youtube fame Live Work Wander when our paths crossed in Germany back in the summer of 2019.

They were really interested in The Managon and I was really happy for them to do a room tour video for you guys to check out for yourselves. We had a good laugh doing this despite being rather baked at the time!

 

A week long trip – UK To Abenteuer & Allrad, Bad Kissingen 2019

This will be our third year making the jaunt over to Germany to Bad Kissingen where the world famous Overland Show is held every year. For Jed and Dan it is one of the highlights of the year, not only because the show itself is amazing but it is the camping area that is always the best part of the trip. It is a perfect opportunity to have people swing by to say Hi and have beers with friends we have arranged to meet in the camping area. This year we took a whole week off work for some down time and to hang out with both new friends and old ones.

We really want to make you feel you are with us in our camping area this year, so grab a cold beverage, hit the full screen option, tune in and kick back while you come and join us in this latest CVC video.

CVC HQ London to SYNCROFEST California – A VW Vanagon/T3/T25/Minivan road trip

 

CampervanCulture.com has been involved in some light sponsorship over the past few years with Syncrofest in California. This year we thought it would be fun for Jed to go out there to meet the people who follow what we do here and tie that in with hooking up with the main USA vendors that also contribute to the event that we also deal with loads.

There was some bonus time to be had either side of the event with visits to national parks before the event and a drive along Big Sur after the event in the rental airport minivan. The minivan proved to be a good cheap way of seeing this part of the world and was to become Jed’s home for the week! Solid friendships both old and new were cemented and formed over the duration of this amazing event at what has to be the most friendly VW van meet in the world. Why not check out what all the buzz is about and join us as we take you over to the Hollister hills in California and to Syncrofest 2019.

Come ride with us on this van trip with a difference,

 

Vanlife Explorers Visit Cappadocia Turkey – Episode 3

When the invitation arrived for me to join Canadian globe trotters Live.Travel.Play for a short while when on their Turkish section of their world tour, I jumped at the opportunity.
Back in part 1 & 2 we experienced skies full of hot air Ballons and some amazing cave exploring in the side of mountains at The Red Valley Cappadocia. In part 2 there was still no shortage of exploring but that time for us it was all about tracking down the best food and drink as well as putting Lucky, the Vanagon through it’s paces by taking it off road once more.

In part 3 we explore the biggest underground city in the area and have one last explore of an area we found by pure chance. This ended up to be the best yet..

Lucky’s rear wheel carrier and tray can be found HERE
The quality camping chairs and other equipment can be found HERE

Vanlife Explorers Visit Cappadocia Turkey – Episode 1

The best part of working at CampervanCulture.com is the people you meet and the places you get to explore.

Janice, Gregor and their Vanagon named Lucky are Canadian globe trotters that have been over four years living ion the road. Their adventure started in Canada where they then headed south to the very bottom of South America. They then shipped to Europe and have ventured to far flung corners such as Iceland and Morocco.

First official trip out, this time ABENTEUER & ALLRAD 2018.Managon #6

Hey guys..

It has been a full on few months right here to get to this point where we are now ready to give something back to the community. At CampervanCulture.com we are as always in your debt for the support you give us by supporting what we do and allowing us to be much more than just another web shop selling parts. Your direct support is what keeps us stocking and innovating the more interesting products rather than just things with off the shelf part numbers *YAWN!*

Sooo.. the last 6 months has been full on, and it was much needed work so we can slip back into making the short films that we are known for bringing to you for your viewing pleasure, in the hope we may inspire some of you. On the flip side of this coin it also gives a lot of you to reach out to us so you can (and almost 100% of the time) inspire us into doing something or going somewhere via social media interaction.

 

Right to Roam

There are two kinds of people that own camper vans. There are the people who have them as a thing.. They rarely sleep in them and if they ever do sleep out it is usually in a tent pitched next to it so they don’t get the vehicle dirty. These people usually have no interest in travel and the pure freedom owning a vehicle that you can sleep in gives you.
The other kind of people who own camping vehicles are the ones who have a sense of adventure…

Jump in the van with Marie-France Roy and Alex Yoder as they weave their way through Scotland, exploring how personal accountability allows for universal land access and the old farm shelters that support mountain folks to rove freely.

The Start Of Autumn Weekend 2017 & Some Trip Vlog Testing..

After a couple of months of the CampervanCulture.com Westy Syncro being out of action due to yet another shagged gear box we had a stoke of luck. It was expensive luck but we did find a rebuilt Syncro gear box for sale at Busfest a couple of weeks back. Because of all the support we get from you guys and girls who support us from buying from the CampervanCulture.com web shop and at the shows we trade at we had enough to buy the gear box. Believe it or not at £3000 this gear box was a bargain! and not only has this put us back on the road but we should be able to get the old one rebuilt so we have a spare… With a spare rebuilt Syncro gearbox sat on a pallet we can really travel with a bit more confidence knowing via our UPS or DHL shipping accounts we can receive a new gearbox anywhere in the world in under 5 days!

We realise that all of you recognise CampervanCulture.com as not just another internet web shop and totally appreciate your support. With the support you give us it means we are completely self funded and it allows us to give something back via the short films we make so you can watch them any time you like and as often as you want for free.

This trip is just a short one. A quick weekend away into the Surrey Hills, we really hope you enjoy being with us in the passenger seat or virtually walking side by side with us on our hike.

This short video is more than us just getting out for a weekend exploring, it has been a bit of an experiment. Been thinking for ages just how viable daily or 3 times weekly video logs would be on our next trip. I like just picking up the filming gear and making a film series for you all for when we get back but…. let’s say… just for fun it would be possible to put together a series of regular video logs from out on the road and launch them every couple of days. It would be a lot of work but just as a tester this short film was put together to see what could be done which just an hour and a half of editing as a tester to see what is in reach..
