    New T6.1 - what's the differences between a T28 and a T30?

    I'm considering changing my 2018 T30 swb 150DSG Kombi Edition for a new T6.1, cant believe how much it's still worth after nearly four years and 46,000 miles! Looking on the VW configurator the price difference between a new T6.1 T28 and a T30 is about £600. I understand the T30 is built to...

    Grabbing brakes. Braking too sharp

    Hi all, I bought my 2018 T28 camper van a few weeks ago. I am finding that the brakes are extremely sharp. Just the slightest pressure on the brake pedal brings the brakes on with a vengeance! My wife says it’s my bad driving and hangs on to the grab handles if she thinks I’m going to brake...

    newbie question - do these springs look normal?

    Hi, I have a 2016 T28 T6 with 40mm lowered suspension. The ride in the rear is really uncomfortable and every bump sends a shudder through the van. I've taken a look at the springs to see if i can identify them and notice the coils are really compressed. Would this normally be expected?

    Hi Im in the process of looking at (swb) transporters which will be good as the base for the conversion. I've been speaking to one converter and their recommendation was to go for a T30 or T32. Id be looking at a fairly standard conversion of pop top, rear seat/bed and kitchen units and just...

    Overloading A Van - T28, T30, T32 Question

    I get that a T28 can gave a gross weight of 2.8 tonnes, but is that simply the specified weight, or the legal weight? If I load it to 3 tonnes, am I breaking the law or just risking breaking my suspension? I currently have a T28 T5.1 (why are they both 'T' numbers??) and sometimes I'm sure...

    T28 As A Camper Weight Limit

    Hi all, Just looking to buy my T6 to start my camper conversion. Found a T28 I really like but concerned regarding going over 2800kg. Does a full camper conversion with poptop get close to the limit? Is there a physical difference between T28 and T30? Or is it possible have a T28 replaced?

    New Conversion Project Load Question

    Hi All I am a total newb but I have my eye on a 102ps T28 SWB and wondered if this would be adequate for a conversion that has a full width rib bed, micro pod (sink/hob/fridge) and a pop top? It’s me, my missus and 2 year old too. I could make our border terrier walk.

    T28 Tyre Ratings

    Hello All, Looking to get some new tyres, a friend can get Pirelli's at staff discount but they are a slightly different spec. The old tyres have a rating of 103Y and the possible new ones would be 99Y. Would this matter?

    Weigh Bridge Tomorrow! Eeek

    Big day for Bryan our camper tomorrow. He's due to be weighed and I'm slightly nervious with him being a T28 and a fully loaded camper. I over looked this at the start as always thought it would be more than enough. No roof just yet so all should be fine for now but hoping with only two of us...
