VAn theft is becoming a major issue at the mo, i advise eberybody to make every effort to stop this, dont go for the products on the market.... wheel clamps, immobilisers etc as they no how to get round em all in seconds, think unique and keep your ideas to yourself, if you come up with a good anti-theft device make it use it and say nothing word of mouth spreads fast and before ya no it some thieving fcuker has thought of a way round it and robbed your bus

Sorry to hear about the theft - sounds like they knew what they were looking for??? A new ringer in valuable Type 3's eh? where will it end - the pikey f**kers will be scouting around show n shine arena's next for our valuable sought after parts.

Just a thought - any point in contacting the previous German owners / German authorities in case you dealt with some shedy characters back in the fatherland (I presume they were recently imported to the UK) who think they are clever enough to come and take them back home?

Will keep an eye out in Cornwall area anyway - its sill tourist season so loads of campers around at the moment.

Good Luck

That is a dam good idea - think i will do this to my bus just in case, as it gets parked in some very public places!

Its worth a go they'd be realy stupid to call us shows is the other suddenly theres some one with 3 pairs of Captains chairs and three grey units with more stock at his "unit" we can string him up.

The police have all the details on our van so if they are daft enouph to try and register it we've got em but am sure they could just as easily change chassis numbers.

I know it's a long shot, but would it be worth asking the specialist T3 breakers we already know about to see if anyone has been asking about right hand dashboards / righthand pedal box assembly as it is lefthand drive and unregistered. Also, could be worth tipping the relevant authorities about it just incase someone tries to register it as an import. Unfortunatly it's more likely to be stripped for bits though. Will be looking out for it in Leicestershire still!

Hi Guys firstly may i say how sorry we are the vans are gone we got the link Fwd from an agent of ours because we had 2 T3 Westys vans stolen the other day, luckily the stupid bastards stole one while the brakes were being serviced and had no fluid in so they got a nasty shock as they reached the first corner appart from a broken steering lock and a door slighly bent its ok but they got away with a T3 California Hitop, again not registered chassis number WV2ZZZ25ZLH078339.

Also as you may or may not know we are based in N.Wales so this is not a local group of people.

So if a new ad comes up in Volksworld advertising "T3 Westfalia breakers" we know were to go.

anyway i just thought i'd ad our problem as it may make others think there random break-in may be part of this and maybe we can get these bastards.

take care guys

 

oh yeah i thought i'd add a link to the van i know it looks like any other T3 but you never know.

Has all the trademarks of a close to home job to me ie not opportunist to use copper dialogue. Nope, no chancing involved in this one. Well planned and executed it seems. Sadly chances are you`ve unknowingly met or seen or know of the inbreds who did the robbing. Might be more efficient pushing out a couple of k on the market in return for patellas and info - only hard cash will get results I`m afraid. Someone always talks for bucks, they won`t be being scared of the Sopranos. The pimps won`t like it that their handywork takes prominence in this forum either.

Hey, best of luck

Still bloody love my bloody van

Wankers! Good luck with the insurance claim is all I can say.......

Will keep my eyes open in the Worcester area, not too many about up this way so I would notice them.... Especially on German plates if they are dumb enough to leave them on
