New member VW Trophy, Hampshire UK

Post by Trophyman on Tue Dec 29, 2015 10:40 pm

Hi all, delighted to be joining up and hopefully becoming part of this excellent community. I am the proud owner of my first ever camper van, a long-held dream that since July 2015 has now become a reality. My vehicle is a VW Trophy, petrol, 2.5L automatic with (I am told) factory fitted air conditioning.  All in all it is in fabulous conditions and a great credit to its one previous owner from new, with about 65k miles on the clock.

I have hardly taken it out at all yet and I am already tinkering about with all sorts of things inside. I want to put two safe seats in the back so I have taken out all the bench seats and am fitting a new plywood floor prior to installing two captains chairs, using the three point inertia reel mounts in the side pillars. 

I have already benefitted a great deal from great advice here on the forums and I look forward to making my own contributions in due course.
