    We’re just coming to the end of our first summer with our 1975 VW … more ups than downs so a definite success! Not keen on keeping her parked up on the street outside our house for the winter though – any suggestions for good value winter storage under a roof in the Bristol/south west area? We’ve friends in Shropshire who know a friendly farmer who rents our barn space … looking for something like this I guess.

    I’ve another, broader, question: What general measures ought I take before parking her up under cover for what is likely to be several weeks in any one spell?

  1. Winter storage
    We get a lot of questions like this regarding boats.
    A bit different I know, but some bodywork and battery items are the same. No doubt others can help regarding tyres, engine lay-up etc.
    Keep the battery topped up on a trickle charger or consider a solar charger if outdoors.

    Whether indoors or out, you might like to consider a breathable cover – try

    For bodywork protection, consider giving it a good clean followed by a high-quality wax. Don’t be tempted to leave the wax without buffing up to a good shine or it will be difficult in the spring. We have some brilliant waxes, intended for boats, but perfect for camper vans too.

    For storage try calling local caravan clubs and campsites. Local farmers also often rent barn space.
