  1. New T5 Members Forum
    I have come to accept that my trusty BMW 1 Series is no longer fit for family life - I have 2 boys (aged 11 months and 3.5 years) and they require a lot of stuff. And that is before my bikes get taken into consideration. So we need something bigger - and I keep coming back to T5s, as my...
  2. T6 General Chat
    Hi all, Thinking of buying my first transporter and I'm looking for some advice and inspiration. I'd like to buy a T6 and covert it into a camper with space to store mountain bikes inside alongside the bed (I don't like the idea of hanging expensive bikes off the back on a rack)...

  4. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi guys Sorry if this post is in the wrong thread, I've decided that I don't wanna wait any longer before I get my first T5. Current situation means that I will be looking to finance rather than buy outright. Those of you who have experience of financing a T5, can you offer any tips or tricks...
  5. T5 Conversions
    Been looking about the forum for a while trying to build up some ideas for my van. Ive been wanting a layout which allows me to keep a bike with wheels on in the back while also having the bed in there but also keeping some space to cram all the camera kit.

  6. T5 Conversions
    Hi guys, I'm looking at getting a bike rack for the van, being bit of a tart I don't want something that's permanently on show (I've also got a rear spoiler so I can't use a Fiamma bike rack) I have however heard about the westfalia detachable tow bar with the Strada DL4 bike carrier. My...
  7. T5 Conversions
    Hi guys, Just to explain my situation, I've been mucked around by a company in Andover who promised me to get the van in for conversion and now a month a half later they've just turned round and said no. So what I need is a conversion company who is top quality and can have my van fully...

    So, reluctantly up for sale is my Spesh SX Trail. Its a 2006 frame in superb nick, never been cracked welded or repaired, some obvious trail stone chip marks and a little scuff on the right side of the down tube above the Specialized name (pictured) but nothing major and in really lovely...

    They are both in black, the swing arm looks as though it was red and painted black. There are a lot of scratches and running on this frame, it's been well used in its time. It is the frame with single head shock, this works well. The sale is for the frame, forks, handlebars and stem. There are...
