Our add graphics

Hi folks.

It's been a while since we started our mission to help as many people as possible to get a first hand experience of what it means to have a VW campervan holiday. Sofar, many have joined the club of happy VW campervan campers, and our family is growing ever larger. As we're all here for the fun of camping in a VW hippie van, we've created a fun drawing that is supposed to represent the fun side of driving and camping. As mentioned earlier, we do all the work, you have all the fun!

Happy vee dubbing!
