Owning a campervan is like joining a little club, and before you know where you are, you find that you have engulfed yourself in “the scene”!

Are you wearing a campervan t-shirt? Have you thought about having a campervan birthday cake? Hmmm and have you got those campervan egg cups (you know the ones…)? Yep, it’s easy to get swept up in it. Before long, you will find that your social calendar is highlighted with all the VW festivals and you have a keen eye for spotting anything VW on the road, in a book, in a film… in fact, they are everywhere and you will be the first to spot them!

But the VW community are a friendly bunch, and beginners will be made to feel very welcome. If you are new to the scene, fear not, as you can quickly join in on the lingo, and even come across as a bit of a guru with this rather handy little “Bluffers Guide”!

Just hover your mouse over the dots and “kerpow” – up pop these amazing little facts that will impress your campervan friends.


For those of you contemplating getting your first campervan, why not throw yourself into the V-Dub world by hiring a retro VW camper and booking a ticket to one of the amazing festivals lined up for this year. Once you turn that key, and start the engine up, you will quickly become addicted!!!
