The arrival of the cooler weather inevitably means less customers arriving at Deeside Classic Campers. Camping in Scotland in the late Autumn and Winter is, as we all know, a little cooler! For customers who enjoy a winter wonderland, Murdo T6 VW is your camper! Murdo our T6 VW is available to hire throughout the year and is fitted with a fantastic blow air heating system, offering very cosy camping. Brilliant for warming up with a hot chocolate after a walk on the beach or in the hills!
Martin (Mr DCC), Fleep, (Kirkton Body Repairs, Banchory) and Dougie and Davie (Dee Garage, Banchory) are busy in the workshop, getting our classic VW boys; Hamish, Fergus, Murdo T6, Angus and Archie VWs MOT’d, resprayed, undersealed, and any repair work completed in time for the start of the season in March.
I am busy removing all the curtains & cushions ready to be washed, ironed and stored until the Spring. Every piece of crockery, cutlery and equipment is taken out, carefully cleaned and packed away.
Now comes the part I love: the upholstery. Where required, seats, beds and cushions might need restoring or replacing. Our customers are very careful with our VW boys, but the campers see a lot of use over the season and we love making them look fresh and shiny again for the coming Spring. In some cases, there’ll be new door cards. In other vans we might decide to replace everything or choose a new funky colour scheme. Madmatz are our brilliant upholsterers. We just love receiving the new cushions, bunting, and seat covers we have ordered for the vans. Check out what we chose for the luxurious interior in ARCHIE VW following his restoration!
So it’s still a hive of activity here, even if it’s not sand castle weather! We are working hard to make everything even better for our customers for next season. So if you have a question about a hire, please get in touch or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org we would be delighted to help you!
We look forward to the start of the campervan season and meeting more VW happy campers!
