**SOLD** 3/4 width rock n roll bed for sale £75 bargain price for quick sale

Bluebird 3/4 width rock n roll bed mechanism (with plywood boards). Was in my 63 splitty microbus (hence the cut out portion at the bottom of the kick panel frame to fit round the microbus warm air outlet). Worked great. Only took it out to fit a full width rock n roll instead! Fits on the left side...

Re: Full electric conversions.....

I do see hydrogen being used on large machinery such as ships, trains, diggers, etc., but suspect the tide has already turned in favour of battery storage for cars and bikes... that said, predicting the future is tough, ask Kodak :wink: Unless they can crack recharging times without negatively impa...

Re: Camping after Hessisch in Germany (Wolfsburg?? Hanover??)

Thanks guys, Looks like we might be going to Hanover first (with some friends) then maybe Wolfsburg mid-week (as the old museum is closed on Mondays). Should be good for AutoStadt, Factory tour & old museum that way. (And possibly a better chance of getting on the Wolfsburg campsite rather than stra...

Re: Hessisch Tickets

I'm pretty sure from last time that last time that you can just drive into the campsite as it's free for all. Then you can easy walk into the middle of Hessisch Oldendorf from the campsite (to the town hall/organisers office I think) to collect your goodie bag of event plaque/vehicle pass/evening ti...

Anyone else got the Official VW Splitty 2017 Calender??

Hi,

I've got the Official VW Splitty calendar on the wall next to my desk at work and the pic for May 2017 is bugging the hell out of me coz the owner has put the rear lights on upside down on his van!!

Is it just me that finds petty stuff like unbearable that or is it just my OCD! :oops:
