Red Hatch Repairs which is part of Red Hatch Classic Campers Ltd has taken over the previously known and well loved company VW Classic & Camper Repairs Ltd, which has been established at the Deverill Trading Estate in Sutton Veny for over 6years, offering a friendly and honest approach to the needs of classic VW owners.
Our speciality is VW T2, T3, T4 & T25 Campervan restoration and repairs, but combining over 40 years of knowledge and experience, Roger, Max & Lee are confident that they can help you with pretty much anything your classic car requires.
Many classic vehicles are made of fewer components than cars of today. It may sound simple but it takes a long time to understand their many quirks. Our customers are passionate about their vehicles but don’t always enjoy trying to fix them as maintaining classic vans and vehicles can be quite a difficult challenge.
This is exactly how we can help as we understand how frustrating it can be when things don’t go according to plan!
Roger gave up the 9 to 5 to start work full time on classic vehicles and with his lifelong interest in VW’s was the founder of the successful business VW Camper & Classic Repairs Ltd.
“Since I was a kid I have spent my time meddling with cars of all types, I admit, I’m an addict!” says Rog.
Although he specialises in working with classic VW camper vans, he can also work with other classic vehicles including Land Rovers, Austins, Morris Minors and Minis and has his own bay window camper and a Morris Minor
A friendship developed between Gerald & Roger over the years that the Red Hatch hire fleet was being well looked after and Roger suggested that the business should continue with Gerald at the helm so he could focus on doing what he loves - tinkering with a classic engine or welding an ageing panel!
Max is an experienced mechanic and fellow VW enthusiast, owning his own split screen camper van in which he has driven many miles with the family.
Before joining the team some years ago, Max spent some time working on vehicle recovery, including roads repairs on all types of vehicles. He prides himself on being able to fix pretty much any mechanical issue that might present itself.
Max is a keen runner and is looking forward to the next London Marathon.
Lee has just come on board and specialises in welding and body repair work.
He has worked extensively with classic VW’s for 20+years and brings a wealth of experience to the team.
Gerald has an extensive knowledge of cars with a 25+ years in the motor industry prior to setting up Red Hatch Classic Campers Ltd, which has been a resounding success.
“It made sense for the hire business to expand and when the opportunity arose for me to take over the reins from Roger, I jumped at the chance. It adds another dimension to the business and I am really looking forward to getting more involved and expanding into classic VW vehicle sales, which is my passion.”
I am the real boss and look forward to meeting you !
