    Back From The Detailers

    So after almost 1 year of ownership my baby is now exactly how I want her. After taking delivery last March is was a few months to wait before the conversion could be completed. I drove over to the U.K. in June 2021 and left the van in the capable hands of the team at @Cambee Campervans with...

    washing engine: yes or no?

    I have just bought a t6 and the inside and outside are spotless but the engine bay is a disgrace (dusty crap, not oil). will I be safe to give the engine a blast with the pressure washer or is it a bit of a gamble on VWs? I am used to land rovers and when they get dirty there is no problem with...

    Detailing a new Van?

    So a new van (should) be arriving in few weeks, and I’m wondering if I should ask the dealer not to bother washing (i.e. swirl marking) it & going straight to a detailer & get it coated...

    Valeter for campervans

    Hi all A musing I am having since the pandemic has changed working environments for everyone. If your van is converted for camping, would you entrust the cleaning of the vehicle (just the exterior, or the whole thing) to somebody else? Has anybody had experience of asking a valeter to clean...

    Dog vs Carpet

    So white dog vs Black Shuttle carpet resulted in a 2 hour hoovering session. I need a solution to help with the state it gets in from the dog and from general camping mess - shaving the dog is not an option apparently. I was toying with the idea of removing the rear carpet, but would I need to...

    Who in their right minds would buy a white van?

    I thought I’d wash the van today - ALL day. Small black spots all over it, interspersed with the odd yellow or brown. So I introduced it to some Farécla G3, then some lighter fluid and finally a revelation - A clay bar ! Never used one before, but the results are amazing. Tailgate, passenger...

    Short-handed Gun for Snowfoam

    So I've purchased some new detailing goodies to have a play with. I bought the Short Gun as after watching a couple of reviews I just liked the fact it has the swivel on the hose connection, I get really annoyed with the standard hose curling up every second while your using it. Fingers crossed...

    KDS Keltec - detailers

    KDS Keltec, based in Gillingham, Kent. 5 star; superb and highly recommended. The third vehicle I've sent to KDS now which speaks for itself. No doubt not the cheapest but the attention to detail is first rate. Took the van there after only 1000 miles to keep it pristine. On inspection the...
