    General advice on getting started with T6

    Hey folks! New member here and all-round camper newbie. I'm interested in purchasing a campervan to use for family trips around the country and to use for general every day use. So I'd prefer something modern, but not too modern as I have a fairly tight budget! I'm looking at either purchasing...

    What extras should I include in my new van specification?

    Hi, New member on here, but previously a T5.1 owner and member of T4forum. I’m about to press go on the order for a new T6.1 for delivery in 12+ months. I’ve agreed a price and PCP deal I’m happy with but want to make sure I’ve spec’d it “correctly” and not put anything unnecessary on or...

    VW cancelled a load of orders

    So in Dec 2020 I order a new T6.1 4 motion LWB DSG Kombi. A promise of April delivery. That date came and went, with a new promise of Sept 21. That date came and, a few weeks ago the date changed again, to a non confirmed wk build date of wk 12 2022!!! that’s March 22, so by the time I would get...

    Can't decide if I need all these options

    Hi everyone! As the title says I can't decide what's really essential, I keep building and rebuilding in the configurator and range from cheapest 5 speed 110ps in Trendline trim for ~40k CHF to Highline dream build for nearly 70k Swiss Francs. I have a feeling that with nearly 30k of options...

    Waiting on my new van to be built and just wondering how many people here in the same boat. Seem to be completely in the dark right now , getting no info from VW UK or my dealer as to any sort of estimate as to when it's likely to be built. All they can say is it's delayed which is pretty...

    T6.1 150 Dsg Now Or Wait For 199 Dsg 4motion?

    T6.1 Delivery Update

    Ordered my new T6.1 at the beginning of January (10th I believe) and it was built the week before the VW factory closure. Had a update last week saying it was at the uk port and today I’ve had another update saying it’s still there. I suspected this would be the case due to the Coronavirus...
