Hey guys (and girls)
This year was my first visit to vanfest, I liked it a lot.
Even was thinking about comming next year again, but.........................
the roadtax here in Holland and the fuel is not getting cheaper, more more more money we have to pay to our F****** goverment.
So I was thinking to sell my van :( and buying a camper.
Campers are less "charged" because its a recreation vehicle.
But (again) the camper van I probally gonna buy is a Chevy camper van, is it gonna be a problem to camp next year on the T4 field ?????

hi Jacob, i know you have strange laws on vehicles over there i i lived and worked in Rossendale for a few years and worked on VW's whilst i was there, is your T4 just a van or a dose it have the rear windows and seats in as they are cheaper on tax or may be have a semi high roof fitted as this brings it down a bit from what i can remember

to Ray,

My van was just a two seater, last year I made it a "crew cab", 3 seats in the back.
I had the thought of making it in to a camper van butt......
I have a 1997 model, and likes to rust.:*
And I build the van up to be a bit sporty and with the camper roof on top, I dont think its sporty anymore.
An other option what I was thinking of, is to buy a 2000 model (or newer) T4 with the VR6 in it or V6.
Petrol cars are less charged for roadtax.
I will see, the van is still running great, and I dont take quick steps in selling my van.
