Mr Blue Sky's Paint Job
We are super busy in California hunting for vw campers for you lucky people. We are also working on our new additions to our Rentals getting them all ready for the summer season in the UK, our first new addition is Mr Blue Sky, we have just sent him for his paint job: -
Simon looks pleased with his work!
Below is a sneak peek of his new colour!
What do you think of the colour and name? We think he will be sparkling new addition to our fleet. Keep checking back here or on Facebook or Twitter for updates on Mr Blue Sky, and to see pictures of our second new recruit - Boogie Nights as and when we begin its transformation!
We are taking our Campers to the Big Tree Festival in Suffolk this summer, Suffolks newest and greenest festival: -
The Organisers believe they have a responsibility not just to limit the environmental impact during the festival, but also to demonstrate and inspire people to become greener and sustainable themselves. They plan to allocate a percentage of ticket sales towards localised tree planting schemes, creating orchards for schools, and a long term aim of creating a community woodland and biodiversity project in Suffolk. A really cool idea and hopefully will be a great success!
Check out more info on the festival at http://www.bigtreefestival.co.uk/
Take a look at our new 67 bus - this will be our new rental vehicle after a lick of paint and a clean up. But we are struggling for names?! It must be a hit song from the year of its birth, so let us know any of your ideas from 1967 either on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/RetroCampersNorfolk) or Twitter @retrocampersnorfolk

Dubs at the Hall
We had a very wet weekend at Dubs at the hall last week, unfortunately the event was cancelled on the Sunday due to the ground being too waterlogged, we managed to meet lots of new faces on the Saturday and had a fairly successful weekend. The organisers are hoping to have a one off day later on in the year to make up for the lost day so if you missed out keep an eye here for updates!
We had some fun the other week putting our logo on Simon's new 63 Panel. We think it looks pretty sweet! What do you think?
We're Getting Full
Sunhine Imports have had delivery of some of their Campers they have hunted out over the last 6 months, and we have more arriving soon! We are running out of space!! Get in contact to come have a look!
Oh No - What happened to this camper - makes us very sad!
