The Big Red Bus

Post by Big Red on Mon Feb 07 2011, 10:41

Hello everyone, my name is Big Red, you can call me 'BR' for short if ya like!

I'm a 1972 Devon Moonraker campervan and you may recognise me as Mr September in the 2011 AK calendar!

I'm a fairly stock '72 crossover bay window; stock height, stock 1600, stock interior layout retrimmed in green and beige and riding on stock steels with early bay chrome hubcaps. I was originally a white RHD microbus when I left VW in Germany for conversion to a camper in the UK and at some point was resprayed yellow. Now I am Beryl Green under white with a 2 bow roof rack and a Devon pop-top. Oh, and a couple of stickers...

I sleep 4 with a rock & roll bed in the back and two bunks in the pop top. Cooking is on a swing out 2 ring gas cooker, I have a dining table for 4, a fridge, sink, water container with a pump, plenty storage and a CD player for the road trip tunes.

I have only travelled about 10,000 miles in the last 8 years and half of that was with Andrew & Christine in 2010 when I went to loads of music festivals: Latitude, Truck, Wood, Out to Graze and VW shows like; Volksworld, Blenheim Palace and Action at Santa Pod. I've also been to a couple of weddings and a 2 week road trip around the Netherlands and Belgium.

This year, who knows?!? Looking forward to seeing you all soon though. What you think of my holiday snaps from 2010?


Out to Graze, crazy nights, lazy days






An AK summer meeting at the pub


Blenheim Palace VDub and mini show


Booohooo, a horrible wet day in Holland, major oil leak onto the exhaust =


Nighty night at Wood festival


Byeeee, see y'aaall soonX

Found a fantastic local campsite. Simple facilities with big grassy spaces, camp anywhere you like and open fires allowed. 7 quid each per night and just 10 minutes down the road, nice.

Great to toast the marshmallows and watch the stars


All set up ready for cooking dinner on Friday night with a G&T


Evening sunshine!


Even during half term it wasn't busy, there were 2 more fields to choose from too


will definitely be back...

Called Britchcombe Farm, near the white horse, Uffington. Don’t think they have their own website but its on these:

http://www.thehappycampers.co.uk/campsitedetails/28/
http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/details.asp?revid=4476

Dogs, families, ball games, tents, campervans, open fires all welcome. We just rocked up at 7pm on a Friday in half term with no problems finding a spot in the middle of the field. Lots of big groups and children playing til late, everyone had a log fire going. Toilets are portaloos in the field we were in but they were clean and stocked with paper, soap, water, didn’t venture out of our field but think there's some tipis, a proper shower block, electric hook up facilities and farm with cream teas in the other fields.

Perfect group camping as there's no restriction to where groups/ tents/ cars/ campers can go, only concern would be the field is a bowl so could be difficult to get level in a campervan. Could get the sausages sizzling over a griddle and baked potatoes in the embers.

I would be up for a group camp if it's on a w/e were free.

Summer 2011 French road trip: Vendée, inland, Chateaux of le Louire, Normandy, Brittany beaches. 800miles of trouble free motoring, albeit sometimes rainy. Great food, great wine, great days out and happy cruising with the tunes on.

Sunrise over the river in Mayenne. Campsite about 10 Euros a night (in total for 2 people one campervan).

Nice little town, great for a stop over. Recommend the cidre and galettes



Classic summer motoring



What could be more summery than a bus in a field of sunflowers in the sunshine?



Ricaaaaaaaaaaard.



Cheffing up on the Devon cooker



Bye bye France. A+





Great road trip, lots of fun in BR
