Cathedral Campers owner, Jamie Flowers, Has had an interest in vintage VWs for more than 25 years. “It was my dad that first introduced me to the VW scene as a teenager when there was little interest in VWs. The scene was barely noticable back then and deemed “uncool” by the majority of people. My dad was taken aback by the sheer simplicity of these vehicles.” Within six months Jamie had bought his first VW Beetle and moved on to campervans.
The split screen van we use has a wealth of history and it was a chance sighting in Italy that led to Jamie importing it to the UK.
“I first set eyes on her on the shore of Lake Garda whilst on holiday with my then girlfriend more than ten years ago. It was only towards the end of the holiday that I realised the word VENISI in the window of the van meant For Sale.
