Hi all, fab to be here. We are picking up a 1976 Type 2 superviking on Saturday. First one, always wanted one, may go horribly wrong, but willing to give it a go! We've been to Dubfest and Volkspower the last couple of years in our old non vw camper, and love the vehicles and the scene. As we're in Northumberland, is this the closest club to us? As sure we will be asking loads of questions over the coming months! Fingers crossed....:)

Fantastic!! Think we may need to replace the gas struts as roof doesn't seem to go all way across. Also having engine issues, and difficulty finding somewhere reliable local that will actually get back to us, and doesn't make me feel about 4 years old when they talk to me!

I have just replaced the gas struts in the roof - it is a big heavy roof and now lifts fine with a bit of a shove! It was a very easy job to do - I got mine from SGS Engineering



Also, if you are having trouble pushing the sliding the bed out I would advise you remove the beds in the roof to look at the supports underneath - on mine it had been put together with small self tappers and some of the brackets had fallen off. I riveted these back on and the bed slides out like a dream now. Took a few hours but worth it!

I am not sure who you could talk to about your engine...

Thanks, that's really helpful. We're off to a place on Friday in South Shields and if that's no good then think we will go down to the dub place at Harrogate, seems to have rave reviews. Don't want to take it just anywhere, we're going to put another engine in and need it to be the right place who knows what they're doing. Hopefully we will get these jobs done over the winter so all set for next year... Got our glastonbury tickets yesterday, so well chuffed and will be sleeping a lot of people in the super viking roof!! It doesn't seem to completely lift, so the fabric side is slack, and looks like could gather water in, so presuming it's the gas struts.

1979 bay in orange. There is a pic on another post in this forum. It will be a long journey. It's a long way, I'll probably split it and camp half way down.

Ours is a 1976 bay, also orange! We went down this year in my last Campervan, a converted LDV Convoy. That had a flat tyre on the way home at midnight and the brake went. Bloody nightmare. It is a very long way. We usually go down tues, this year will be after school for the kids, so travelling through the night prob. God knows howmlong it will take, I dread to think. Not sure how to post a photo, will try and work it out!
