About me

Hi – we’re Andy & Imogen. Married, in our 30s living in Yorkshire with our Border Terrier Albie.

We’ve been campervanning for four years now and we’ve taken our van “Thunderwulf” to Scotland, Wales all around England, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. He is a solid, well maintained camper.

We’re looking for a trip to New Zealand in early 2024 to visit friends and explore. Andy used to live in Christchurch so would be good to go back.

We’re also considering a trip to Canada.

We’re looking to van swap with folk with a similar(ish) van/ motorhome for a period of 3 weeks. Although based in Yorkshire, we’re open to meeting you at most England airports.

As for us, we’re pretty normal. Full time professional jobs working in environment and climate change fields. We love nature and being in remote places where we can get away from the real world.

We offset all of Thunderwulf’s carbon through contributions to the Woodland Trust.

Vehicle Info

Thunderwulf is a lovely and dependable VW Transporter T6.

We've had Thunderwulf since 2019. He started off life as a plumber's van and we set to work converting him into an excellent camper.

He has high quality EvoDesign fittings, gas, fridge, two gas burner, running water, a sink, camping chairs, pull out awning, 12 volt and 240 volt hookup and a load of other bits.

He has covered about 53,000 miles and was registered in March 2017 (6 years old). Full service history. Oil change and filters done at half service intervals (every 9,000 miles). Strong pulling power. No accident damage. Body work good.
