Re: CamperJam of Busfest

I suspect if you enjoy Busfest you would enjoy Camper Jam and staying for weekend at either is diff from a day visit experience ...Camper Jam has more intimacy especially in eves, as has a central area with all stuff around - Busfest is much more spread out but has a bigger VW and parts trade area a...

Re: Busfest

There does seem to be a drift away from big shows in terms of SSVC club camping - but when you tour the camping areas there are loads of them hiding away seems more people like to be with mates who are often not in Splits? also get the sense old bus owners are turned off by the huge numbers of T5s (...

What engine bay fire system have you got?

Andybugs' recent fire totalling the bus (and it was properly looked after) with no obvious fuel line etc usual suspects, I was wondering about what engine bay fire prevention system people use on their Splits...several very diff types and varying costs around.

Re: A bit of advice

wrong place to ask this really
but a good bay these days seems to be £20K - £25K
this is £38K (if I did the conversion right?) which seems a lot to me
for that money there are some lovely Splits for sale on this forum!

Re: Vehicle pass for Camperjam

Just a heads up I have been told that the Gate will not allow any non-day visitor vehicle in without a pass, due to limits imposed on number of vehicles camping / parking by Weston Park
So I hope you manage to source one OK ....
