We are in the thick of winter and the best thing about being on the road at day break this time of year is witnessing the first fingers of sunlight meet the tar, melt the frost and observe it transform into soft misty streams that dissipate into the atmosphere.

This edition, we have Mark showcasing the Surfer Bed in a VW Black Edition Multivan perfect for the weekend adventurers or overnight stays. If you've been struggling to keep warm this winter we have a reliable and easy to use solution to show you. Lastly, we've helped Joesph and Libby Lombardo get their family prepared for their first family holiday and to complete a mission to deliver four speciality bicycles to children with disabilities in Queensland.

August is around the corner, it's a great time to start thinking about trips you might do in the warmer months ahead. If you need help from VanEssa mobilcamping to make your vehicle road ready or add some extra conveniences to your current setup be sure to drop us an enquiry.

Your Story

Road trip with a purpose

This is the beginning of a new chapter for Joseph and Libby Lombardo who have had their lives forever changed and enriched by the birth of their first child, Isabella, born with Cerebral Palsey. Joseph and Libby have gone to great lengths to get treatment for Isabella, spending almost half a million dollars and travelling to America and Mexico to access treatment that would enable Isabella to learn to walk and not be dependant on a wheelchair for the rest of her life.

This personal experience has shed light on the needs and wants of children with disabilities and it has motivated Joseph and Libby to make a difference in the lives of children with disabilities. Teaming up with VanEssa mobilcamping and Volkswagen, Joseph and Libby were lent a brand new T6 Multivan, fitted out as a camper with VanEssa mobilcamping products and an iKamper roof top tent that will enable their now family of four to travel and camp together for the very first time, an experience Libby never thought was possible.

The family recently travelled up to North Queensland, for a well deserved family holiday and to complete a very important mission, to deliver speciality bicycles, engineered by Joseph, to families with children with disabilities, so they too can learn how to ride a bike.
