    As the title suggests I'm in need of some inspiration on people's layouts with a full width rnr bed. I've got a swb van so layouts with that in mind would be ideal but any inspiration would be good! I know there are various threads with this sort of thing posted but people have new ideas all...
  2. VAG Parts For Sale
    This was originally fitted in my Mk3 Golf and I believe it may even fit in the early Audi A3's as well. Its quite a rare accessory and this in good condition with all of the drawers working correctly. It can store 6 cassettes but the trays can be removed and CD trays fitted or it could be...

    After looking at the tailgate decided that the space was wasted and could be put to better use with these sprung loaded eyelets that are usually found in the boots of most VW's or Audi's. Getting the tailgate panel off was the worst but it came off in the end and worked a treat. Enjoy the...

    I'm new to the forum and to the VW world. We bought a Caravelle yesterday after years of wanting one. The bench seat in the rear has great storage space under the seats but there was no trays in ours (even though there was in others on the forecourt). Does anyone know where I can source some...
  5. What's it worth?
    I'm moving to NZ in five weeks, for two years, so I have to make a decision - sell the van or put it into storage. Already selling the rest of my life, but reluctant to let this go. So any help on figures to help my decision please? 2004, T30, 1.9tdi, re-mapped by Pendle Performance to 130bhp...

    Hi All, I have just bought a 54 plate Red T5 shuttle - pics on my profile. I dont have any seats in the back as of yet but will be looking to get the 2nd row seats to convert into a bed. I want to fit a unit for storage and and a fridge. TV would be great but not sure where to fit it. Any idea...

    I'm wanting to store my T5 1.9TDi converted camper for 10 months in a garage in Gloucestershire as I'm going overseas. I plan to put the van on blocks and disconnect the battery. Is there anything else I should be doing to keep the van in the best condition as possible? Many thanks for any...

    Hello all, I have recently met a guy skiing in scotland who had his T5 converted for skiing and kitesurfing trips. I didnt see the interior of his van but he described the units he had manufactured for storing gear that is wet. He said he had GRP stirage bins that fitted between his 3/4 r&r...

    This is a rare accessory for the Mk3 Golf that fits in any model fitted with a centre console. This is also listed for the Vento and some say the older Audi A3. It is black plastic with storage for 6 cassettes for those people still using them. The cassette blocks can be removed and the CD...

    Howdy. Any ideas on the best options for keeping the van of the road for 6 months or so over winter? Ideally we'd drive it as that tends to keep it working, but might not be in the country so wondered if just wrapping it in some tarp (breathability issues, rust?) would work or if the only...

    Hi Guys, I'm new to the whole forum game so please excuse me if I've in inadvertently committed any forum faux pas. My friend and I have recently completed a camper conversion on the interior of a T5 for a friend of ours. Were hoping to break in to the conversion business and would really...
  12. Interior
    Hi all,so after a lot of reading and gathering ideas from people on here I decided to build a sleeping platform for my kombi. It needed to be useable at any time, require little set up and still leave the van room for putting the occasional work tools in the back while not compromising the...

    Having had my glovebox out recently I realised how much empty space there is inside the passenger dash. In particular, since I don't have an airbag on the passenger side, there's an invitingly large horizontal void behind the removable trim. Has anyone experimented with storage, etc. in this...

    Just ordered a 06 T32, LWB T5 window van and will be having 3 seats put in the back. I run a mountain bike training business and need to transport my bikes (up to 2), plus kit inside the van. Any ideas on how I can achieve this would great.

    This roofbox is 5ft long x 3ft wide x 1ft deep. It holds the majority of our camping equipment and has a load of 50kg. It is black plastic, it has no cracks or damage and secures to roof bars by U shaped clamps which are fixed through plates over the fixing points and thumb screws tightening...
  16. Customising / Modding
    As I don't have a rear window and all that space on the rear tailgate inside not being used, I thought up this idea but although this has been finished I can already see a way to improve it slightly. These sprung loaded hooks are from the boot of a B5 Passat saloon, they may also be in the...

    Why: - much more aerodynamic (save about 7% fuel) - a little extra protection, especially from salt in the winter - add a lockable box at the back or middle for outside storage (colder, cleaner than inside the van, and locked so more secure - may be more temping so might save a smashed window...
  18. General Van Chat
    So on Saturday I got bored and decided that as I have no job and a bit of cash I would book a flight to New Zealand for a year (via Indo for 2 months surfing of course). YAAAYYY!!! Unfortunately that also means that I have to do something with my van for a year. BOOOO! I have thought about...
