Nutkin has emerged from his mid life crisis.

Aged 40 this year Nutkin has had a make over and is now ready to go out on holiday.

We decided to give Nutkin a face lift over the winter which we thought would be an easy paint job, but like anything with VWs it is always a bigger job!

We started by striping back the paint and found quite a rusty roof where from a previous life in South Africa wetsuits had been hung out to dry, leaving salt deposits on the roof... a large section of new roof needed to be welded in.

Three months later Nutkin emerged from the garage, bright and shiny with an appetite for exploring. So far he has been out to weddings, a company birthday party and the more normal experiences of tootling around Cornwall discovering the attractions of life in Cornwall.

VW Camper Hire in Devon - Bay WIndow Westfalia SO67.

A few weeks ago we managed to get a few days away and spent some time at Ladram Bay near Sidmouth, Devon. We took our spare bus from from the VW Camper Hire fleet www.campersincornwall.co.uk this is a '71 Westfalia SO67, RHD from South Africa known to us a Nutkin. We have left it as orginal as we can even down to keeping the original flooring. Underneath it is solid as a solid thing, but when we bought it, all the running gear was wrecked, so new suspension, engine and brakes have been fitted. The kids loved it and although cold at night it was great.
We were also trying one of our new Kyham awnings from Fishbrain, www.fishbrain.biz. They are very easy to erect and survive the winds of Devon an Cornwall.
