February 2016 VOTM

Post by 8 8US » Mon Feb 01, 2016 8:55 am

Nige has suggested a theme of awnings or camping setups to get us all thinking about those long spring and summer days spent enjoying our buses as they were intended, so come on and get some pictures of your bus in all its glory posted here.

As usual the thread will be open for entries until the 22nd February when I will turn it into a poll for 7 days.

Cheers

(Not sure but thinking there may be a ban on Maddison this month.......)

Is there any point participating when Maddison is. I think the ban is a good idea :lol:
Absolutely love his set up.

I'll see what I can dig out and maybe put my set up on here as well.

Well, this is a bit of a cheat, as I only bought the crewcab in November and haven't been camping in her yet. But, this season, I will mostly be linking this...
