    Jimbob76's T6.1 Kombi - a long time in the planning...

    I’ve been reading this forum for a while, and saving up for my new T6.1 Kombi for quite a bit longer. I’m due to collect it next Saturday, so in just 7 days I’ll hopefully fulfil an ambition I’ve had for quite a few years now. Before I start posting on the forum proper, the correct etiquette is...

    To infinity....or at least out of Sussex: My T6 conversion build thread.

    So the time has come to convert my LWB 2015 T6 into a camper. I have owned it for the last 5 years, it's had a very easy life and has only racked up 31k on the clock. I have been reading build logs and a large number of posts to learn, get up to speed, and make myself aware of the many many...

    How I think I'm going to do it!

    After reading loads of amazingly informative threads on this forum, I thought I'd start my own thread. (Largely inspired by @Dellmassive 's really blooming useful and informative "How I done It!" thread.) Basically, I haven't "done it" and simply intend on "doing it"! I thought it would be...

    One lass and her van - panel van conversion

    So after being inspired by Stockwell Campers posts about their van conversion I thought I’d post my journey of converting my panel van. Although possibly at the risk of being punted off the forum as mine is a T5 and not a T6! However hopefully vw camaraderie will ensue and I’ll not get any abuse...

    Panel van to........ to be decided.

    After having sold my Starlight Blue T6, I have started on the journey again. Maybe in a different direction this time. This was delivered to me: So as I cant drive it yet, which is killing me, I decided to start on some jobs. First was sound deadening using the Dodo Mat, which I found...

    My Shuttle Day-Van Conversion

    I purchased a 2018 LWB SE shuttle a couple of months ago and began modifying it straight away. We have always dreamed of having a van so basically sold my motorbikes and purchased this shuttle from Scotland. Drove my car up there traded it in and drove this home. 4 hours after collecting it I...

    Cherry - The build!

    Hi All, So its time for our build thread! We have had our van Cherry (T6 LWB, cherry red!), aka Shushan (an odd joke based on a Jonny English film if memory serves) for a couple of years. Kitted out with a very basic home built bed, with the rear as a bike garage / mucky area. But the time...

    Build Thread: New Crafter for work

    Well today my new Crafter arrived after a 6 month wait for a factory order. :) Really pleased, feels like a big T6 to drive. Nice when going from T6 camper to this and back again as everything is in similar positions. This one is for work as I’m an Electrician but would make a great...

    Converting one of the last TSI's (but not the last TSI)! My build thread

    :cool: I can't be certain but my T6 must be one of the last TSI PV deliveries in the UK - it was registered on 18th March 2019. So I thought it would make a catchy build thread title, and I'll keep it until proven otherwise! So, I'm starting with an untidy ex-Avis/Budget rental van...

    The now rare TSI .....is Anyone Buying These? ?

    I'm looking into the pros and cons of a TSI engine vs a TDI engine for a new T6 Kombi as above. The TSI version is £30,125 vs £31,361 for the TDI equivalent base model (Startline) I'm really not sure which way to go. The TSI is listed at 31 MPG where the TDI is listed at 46 MPG. This is a...
