    Dan’s Fishing Van

    Hi, Im Dan, I introduced myself on the new inductions section. I recently part ex'd my 69 indium grey caddy for a ravena blue dsg single cab t6.1.

    Copart special just landed

    Howdo everyone, as title says my Copart T6 arrived late last night. Too late to have a proper mooch round it but just had a good look and it’s not too bad. Needs a new bonnet, front bumper and possibly a rad as it’s not holding water. Back doors don’t open and they are quite heavily dented at...

    AT6 OYEH! Reflex Silver T6 SWB Kombi with added ABT

    Now then I’ve lurked for a while as Facebook groups have generally taken over forum activity, but thought I’d start a thread on the van, as I expect it will go through some small, continued transformations…. We bought our 2016 SWB Highline Kombi in March last year when then littlest one came...

    The Sandwich Van. My T6 project

    So after months of searching I finally managed to find a van in the right spec and colour. I’ve just picked up a lovely 150 highline T6 kombi and the plan is a very slow camper conversion. Spec wise I’m pretty happy being twin captain seats and a comfort dash from the factory so it’s just...

    My Reflex Silver Project

    Hi All, I thought I'd post a project thread of my 1st Camper, if individual posts are not allowed, please remove. I bought this last week, after months of searching. Originally, I wanted a tailgate model, but I had to think realistically and let some of my options go. Here she was when I got...

    First time camper conversion 2024

    I've posted a few times before and read a huge amount of helpful stuff on here - thank you all! I thought it might be worth me setting up a thread for my build because I keep forgetting what I've posted or not. I'm converting a 2017 sub T6 - my first time and I'm trying to do much of the work...

    My T6 "Swamper" Build

    Ex RAC Van, I'm going to log my progress here as it is turned into a campervan.

    We picked up our ex RAC van yesterday in Wales and bought it to Cornwall. The Auxiliary battery overheated and started to vent about 66 miles from home, I didn't have tools with me but managed to wiggle a fused link (green arrow) until a nut came loose and I was able to disconnect the thick...
