It’s always good to have a company recommendation.

We are lucky to have a whole range of different suppliers to help keep our classics on the road. Over the years I’ve compiled a list of recommended VW Aircooled companies or other related services that you might find helpful…

Victron Bluesolar Smart MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) charge controller, the brains of the solar power system

With all these choices, sometimes it’s good to have a personal recommendation. For example when I wanted to get a solar set-up for the camper. Someone I got to know at a show got their system after doing lots of research. Having seen lots of options to choose from, their experience was a massive help when it came to purchasing mine!

That’s why I like to promote companies who I have used before. Companies that provide great products backed by great service. 

Here are some great companies to deal with…

Forums are not just for geeks

There are internet forums for just about anything. The air-cooled world is no exception. They can be an invaluable resource for parts, technical expertise as well as social sharing. Often it’s a great place to track down hard to find parts or even get you first air-cooled ride!

Helpful online VW Forums…

Yes, real people use forums. Assuming you think people that are into air-cooled classic cars are normal! It’s not just the preserve of cyber geeks! They can be a large worldwide group or just a local group of enthusiasts. There will no doubt be one that fits your needs.

Real Van Life

Everyday ownership of a classic VW Split screen camper van and all the adventures that go towards keeping it on the road as a daily driver in the UK.

Warning it’s not all about Instagram lifestyle shots of beautiful people posing on the roof of the bus staring off into the landscape or watching the surf come in.

However, it is all about having fun! 

Getting out and about using the bus as it was intended to be used. To travel, explore, go camping in and have road trip adventures.
