Slidepods were at the VW Cornwall Jamboree

Slidepods at the VW Cornwall Jamboree

Slidepods made it down for the Saturday evening and Sunday of the Cornwall Jamboree and I think we brought the rain with us! Unfortunately we couldn’t make the Friday and Saturday due to making preparations for the next round of Slidepods productions starting on Tuesday (very exciting, keep you eyes glued for new photos of the latest pods). We were very kindly accommodated in the trade area and set our van up with the sun setting beautifully in the background.

We woke up the following morning to lots of rain, thanks to our Khyam Kamper Cosi we hadn’t noticed the rain overnight at all. The rain didn’t phase us though; tailgate up, Slidepod out, coffee on and we were good to go, nice and sheltered.  We were parked up with an excellent view of the show and shine behind us so had a good chance to see some very beautiful VW’s. Despite the rain, the atmosphere was great and there was a good turn out, we met some lovely people and hopefully got a lot of people interested in our pods and what we are doing.

Slidepods are really excited to be working with Sails & Canvas to produce a range of accessories for your campervans. Products are in the development stage currently so keep your eyes peeled to our facebook page and this Blog page for all the latest updates. Sails & Canvas are a fabulous company local to us based in Topsham, Devon. They have similar values and believe in producing great work with quality products. They are makers of handmade, recycled sailcloth products, made from sails that have passed their ‘sail by date’! They also do sail valeting, sail repairs and bespoke canvas and cover work. We believe the materials they use are perfect for camper accessories as they are, tough, heard wearing, wipe clean and washable whilst looking great.

One of the first products to be produced is a Porta Potti cover, available in wide range of colours so allowing you to discretely store your Porta Potti in your van. Pictures will be available within the next 2 weeks…. In the mean time here are a few pictures of Ronnie – our Slidepods van (and Jane and Esme) in Topsham…

A night in paradise for Slidepods

A night in paradise for Slidepods

Its was a beautiful Thursday afternoon and with an evening of house cleaning and cooking dinner beckoning, when Jonny suggested heading out for a night in the van to Salcombe in the South Hams we all jumped at the idea. We grabbed a change of clothes for the morning, picked up some food to cook on the pod and threw the sleeping bags into Ronnie (our Slidespods T5 Caravelle with The Ultra pod) and we were ready for the off.

We drove down through the stunning South Hams to Hope cove where we discovered Bolberry House Farm campsite, a beautifully kept campsite in the rolling hills between Hope Cove and Salcombe. There were glorious views towards the ocean and a great site with loads of grassy play area for our son to run free safely.

What a great evening……until……bedtime!! Over excited child, beautiful sunset and sleep are not an ideal combination so huge apologies to all those staying on the site that evening because I am sure it was not only us who had a terrible nights sleep!

Just time the following morning to indulge in a very necessary cup of coffee before the early dash back to get our son to nursery and us to work. Despite a night of disturbed sleep, being able to pack the van up in under 20mins and get out to such a beautiful spot for a lovely relaxed fun evening with the family is priceless. Bring on our next adventure.

What are Slidepods?

Slidepods are an innovative way to add a kitchen camper pod to any VW Caravelle/California Beach/T5 conversion. With both standardised and custom options available you can be sure there is a Slidepod camper pod to suit your van. Slidepods give you the convenience of removing your pod easily when not in use or utilising it as a stand alone kitchen pod within a drive away awning.
