We have owned our first campervan, Wolfgang, since 2014, and named it thus due to its unbreakable connection with Germany, and the fact the van was produced in Wolfsburg. After many years of ownership, amazing adventures, and disappointment and heartache when things didn’t quite go to plan, the VW T3 we owned became more than just a well equipped box on wheels. It was a bond to us that couldn’t be replaced

However… As an absolute freak of being in the right place at the right time, the bigger VW Westfalia LT Florida was just about to come onto the market. Long story short we ended up buying ‘Wolfgang Senior’ as we affectionately call him. No older than junior, but he’s bigger, and we enjoy the fact that we can more effectively wilde camp in it, as it has a boiler and shower.

They both have their own unique characteristics due to their size, but give us an amazing amount of freedom. Fixing, maintaining and upgrading were all going to make the experience better, and I hope that the issues covered in this resource can be of help to owners of similar vans.

    My love of motorcycles was forged in the mid 80s with a string of two stroke learner legal motorcycles. I would say that I had best part of ten bikes over five years before my attention moved into cars, then scooters. Four strokes motorcycles never really appealed, and I always thought that If ever I […]

    2021 Post Lockdown Getaway.

    2020 and early 2021 has seen the world turned on its head. Finally we had the chance to get away for a decent break in the larger camper (Wolfgang Senior) as the restrictions were gradually lifted. Initially, we planned to stay at Danby Beacon on the Moors on for our first nights stop, as it […]

    I had visited Durham when I worked for the Fire Service, and my knowledge of the city was restricted to a boozy night out on a late winters day evening, before this visit, which exposed a very limited snapshot of this amazing location. Suffice to say, neither Mandy or myself were not disappointed during our […]
