Ian Cushway and Camper&Bus Magazine


Hello, and thanks for checking out VW Camper&Bus magazine, the go-to publication for people with a passion for VW Campers.

VW Camper&Bus magazine was born in 2007 and is published 13 times a year. It’s the best-selling magazine dedicated to VW Transporters and covers all generations of VW Buses from 1949 right up until today’s modern, water-cooled offerings.

Each and every issue is jam-packed with inspirational owner stories, as well as buying guides, product reviews and practical how-to advice which will enable you to keep your van in tip-top condition and equipped with the most useful accessories. Oh, and we'll tell you where you can go in your VW camper, courtesy of reader roadtrips and tourist guides to the most beautiful parts of the UK and beyond.

As with any old VW, it’s not just about the vehicles. It’s about the scene that surrounds it. The people who own them, work on them for a living, sell parts and attend the hundreds of shows. Once you’ve gone down the rabbit hole of VW ownership, there’s no going back, but then you already know that, or you wouldn’t be here reading this…

Of course the VW Camper&Bus crew have been there, done it and got the postcards to prove it. The thing is, without sounding too evangelistic, we know how fun it can be owning and getting away from it all in a VW Transporter, and feel it's our duty to share that passion through the pages of the magazine. It's the simple joy of being out and about in a VW Bus, and the fact that in a camper the experience can be shared with the whole family. Take it from us, if you've never owned a Camper, you don't know what you're missing!

We’re always looking for cool stuff to feature, be it a new product you’ve made, a sweet Bus you’d love to see featured or a cool trip you’ve taken in your Camper. Simply fire an email to me at camperandbus.ed@kelsey.co.uk and I’ll get right back to you.

Go on, drive your adventure.
