VIV (Vanfest Incident Vehicle)

Post by symcro » Mon Aug 09, 2010 11:40 pm

Hi, I am Simon, Vanfest Coordinator & keeper of the Vanfest Incident Vehicle (VIV), a 1.9l Syncro Crewcab which we have fitted out with a Fire Express System & 400 litre tank.
It also has 2 foam tanks, BA Set, generator, lighting equipmnent, trash pump & a whole load of other kit with it & is capable of dealing with most types of fire or emergency we are likely to have on an event site (as well as dragging out vehicles that get stuck in the mud).
It is an essential part of our Vanfest equipment & comes to many of the events we attend as well.

Hi Simon,

Was looking back through some photo's the other day and found some of the small fire station your doka was stationed at. Thought you (and others on the forum) might be interested...

Your firetruck with it's replacement:

The replacement... sadly non vw... a Merc Sprinter!

Decoration on wall outside the firestation:

Nice decoration inside too... now how cool would your garage wall look like that :D

Visited their site and found out, that the '95 Sprinter was a replacement for a VW Bus crew carrier. :geek:

VIV's successor i s a VW!

A '05 T5 4motion (I prefer the previously used term 'syncro' ...) crew cab. They obviously have a weakness for Dokas!

Looks great in it's livery, but the T5 crewie doesn't have the aesthetically pleasing lines of the T25









I'd still have one tho' :oops:

Pete, you're dead right!

Furthermore they had to add a tool box as there is no storage space under the loading bed. :x
