VWt Magazine issue 26

Welcome to VWt Magazine issue 26.

Inside this months issue we take a look at an air-riding T4 GP – the best all-round Van we’ve ever brought you! Not to detract from the other great rides in this issue, we also feature an OEM+ Euro-Style T4, a classy, tech fest T5 and a wild camping T5.1. If you’re in the market for a T4 you’ll want to read our T4 buyers guide and for those having trouble keeping their windscreens mist free this winter, you might want to replace your resistor pack. We show you how.
