The time has come for a new van, as a family of three soon to be four we’ve kind of outgrown Bumblebee. It’s a bit of a pain finding places to put things while all the beds are out and we end up losing things for days at a time as we can’t put them back where they are supposed to go.
Also, the days of just rocking up and throwing a few couple of chairs out and enjoying our surroundings are long gone, it’s a massive effort setting up a camp everytime we stop, we need to simplify our setup.
We’re sad to be saying goodbye to BumblEbee, we’ve seen and slept in a lot of places in the UK and Europe, we’ve upgraded and mended various things that need attention along the way, our daughter has absolutely loved our home on wheels, Bumlebee will be missed..
If you are reading this then maybe you are interested in buying him. If you read further down this blog you’ll see we’ve just got back from a 1700 mile trip round France and Bumblebee didn’t miss a beat mechanically, we did get a puncture, you can’t prepare for that. After a full reset of the solar controllers the solar panels are now doing what they are supposed to do, I also gave the leisure battery a good charge using a 7 stage charger, just something I always do when I get back from a long trip.
I’ve also changed the oil, oil filter and air filter ready for his new owner, the van comes with a set of roof bars a black and yellow VW duvet set. Below are some recent photos of the van, if you are interested you can find the eBay advert here
