Our Kit

Even though we think our wheels are the bees knees, obviously there is the need and desire to compliment the van with gadgets and gizmos to help us enjoy our time on the road!

This page is designed to list and review the additional bits of kits that enhance our time on the road. All reviews are our own opinions based on having used the item on the road, and we always have bought the item ourselves (although if you are looking for someone to test your item we would be happy to do this, just get in touch!)

You can also view our very detailed page describing absolutely everything we carry on board our VWT5 Bilbo’s conversion and where we store it. Click here: Kitting out our SWB VWT5 Bilbo’s Kombi
