    Buying a Kombi will never be a mistake ! We have a T3 Syncro camper. Can’t go past it. Every day drive and so versatile. And like Barry we have the Kombi that is really the Kombi experience.

    Wow Wilbur looks beautiful! I'd love to find something more local in Vic but I'd be thrilled to get more info on Wilbur! A road trip down the coast sounds like a great way to learn the ins-and-outs of van life!

    Have a look at one on gumtree in Mornington 25k. Good base to build on and close enough for you to touch and drive. Good luck and keep us informed

    Yes! I just heard about this book while digging through the archives of these forums, wasn't sure where to find a copy! Very exciting.

    Here's a pic of our big boofhead Rupert in his natural habitat (taking up the whole bed)

    That one has been for sale for a few years along with other LHD's by what was and still maybe Edward Lees Cars - only one I know of sold BUT think it was returned within a week for what ever reason.

    He posted a few times after paying BIG bucks and never heard again

    Thanks again for the warm welcome, everyone! The wife has completely fallen in love with the first bus we looked at. Test drive another today that did not spark the same joy. Looks like we'll be joining the ranks very soon though!

    Seriously, first rule of Kombi purchasing, is “Buy with your head, not with your heart!” ;)

    We know! I truly think it's a pretty good deal, I'm sure we won't regret it! Especially seeing the other one today, the little things I was worried about seem like non-issues, really.
