A VW Camper is for life, not just for Summer | Morecambe and Wize Campervans Crikey, is it that time of year again already? It doesn’t seem two minutes ago since we were preparing for summer camping adventures and putting in the extra hours so we could get our customers VW camper restoration projects out of the door in time for them to enjoy the best of the British summer time had to offer. Now with nights positively dark, storms ravaging the North West washing away bridges and leaving thousands without power, we are edging scarily closer to the big day and I haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet! Now this week, I don’t want to harp on about project lead times, how many camper vans we have in the workshop or how to look after your VW camper during the winter months, we’ve done that (although we do have them stacked high with the new premises looking increasingly small) but I do want to give a nod to humble Bay Window and a wink to the iconic Split Screen at this festive time of year. I’m sure you’ve heard the “A dog is for life and not just for Christmas” slogan, well we would like to turn this on it’s head and say a “VW Camper is for life, and not just for Summer!” All too often we hear comments like “oh I’ve put the van away till spring now” and “I’d never drive my camper in the rain” or ” What’s the best winter storage advice you have”. Our answer is simple. Use it! Get out for winter walks in it, tinker on it on a cold sunny Sunday, drive it to the mother in laws for Christmas lunch. The roads will be empty and however opinionated the ‘outlaws’ are being about how you should bring up your kinds, you will be guaranteed to arrive home with a smile on your face if your driving the bus! Of course, like anything normal usage require attention like a modern car so check those fluid levels, wash of any salt after the gritters have been out and apply a few good layers of wax to protect the paint work. But it’s there to be enjoyed and you invested your time and money into your camper for a reason. Now pull on an extra layer of clothing and get out there and fall in love with your camper van all over again! Don’t keep it hidden away, show them you are proud to be a camper fan!
