It's always a bit awkward to compliment another man on how good his rear end looks - but that looks great!

Keep your eyes peeled on eBay - there's often a few decent wheels come available on there. I picked my T6-style MFSW up off there - brand new with airbag for about £350.
I think everyone likes a compliment on their rear end, van that is 😂

Rear lights are a piece of cake to fit, plug and play, took me 5 to 10 minutes with a bit of a clean up.
If no-one comes back to you re the awning rail, it's worth starting a new thread as pop top peeps may not have seen your query.

I think the camper place suggested the reimo because of my roof. The reimo is attached to the edge rather than on top...which is covered by the pop top. Problem is.....no one has any. I'll have an awning next week but no rail for possibly weeks.

You could just throw the guy ropes over the top of the van (well round the sides of the pop top) and peg it down on the drivers side. Maybe worth a trial run in the garden or the place you camped on Wednesday.

Worth a look at the vamoose combi rail (available on ebay) which is what I have to go on mine, basically a reimo copy as far as I'm aware. In stock and a fair bit cheaper I believe.

I agree Pduk rear lights are about the easiest mod going (y)

Just had a look on eBay....as dear if not dearer and none for VW. I'll have a nose about, thanks for the suggestion.

Some folk also install a smoke alarm for added piece of mind.

Nice one Steve, I just went out and checked and my repeaters run front to back. You can put them in either way though.

I never even thought when I fitted them. I'd prefer them same as yours but don't fancy trying to get them back out 😂
