We had a great time at Vanfest this last weekend :thumbsup: The weather was just perfect for the trailer. sunshine all weekend 8) 8)
Aparently it's the biggest VW camper gathering in the world, with around 8000 campers attending :shock: :shock:

Amoungs the cool aircooled dubs were a few teardrops and a cool little retro caravan

Hows this for a cool combo;

I'm dreaming of having a splitty TV one day.
The rest of the photos are here; http://s220.photobucket.com/albums/dd4/ ... ?start=all

There were some truly stunning splitscreen campers on show, but boy dont they cost some dosh when there finished. One bloke was asking £38000 for his [smilie=econ_shocked[1].gif] [smilie=econ_shocked[1].gif]
I think the red one in the photo , with the bettle trailer was a snip at £21000.

The VW crowd are a great bunch, and our teardrop went down a storm.
I think we could have sold it a few times over .
I'm fairly sure #3 is going to be for sale to fund the VW. I'm thinking of building a lighter grumman , fully fitted out. I'm still not sure of the price tag to go on it. I'm going to keep an eye on the time put in on the next one.

I love building trailers almost as much as useing them.

Cheers Dave
