|At a campsite outside Friedrichshavn, Denmark, during my Scandinavian, summer touring holiday in 1982, I came across magazine article (Sven Stigø, "Her er vejen til det selvekørende feriehus, Camping, May 1982, pp~54, Danish Camping Union), written in Danish, which seems to be about campervan furniture & equipment kits, for DIY retro-fitment to 1968~79 or 1973~79 VW Type 2 vehicles.
At the following Samba link, are some pictures and text, which I scanned and transcribed from the article, which I have included as part of a subject thread, about little-known & rare campervan conversions from around the World.
A couple of years ago, David Eccles, the editor of Volkswagen Camper & Commercial magazine, sent me a single POBA publicity picture, mentioning that it was another Danish company, which manufactured campervan furniture & equipment kits, for DIY retro-fitment to 1968~79 or 1973~79 VW Type 2 vehicles.
Can anyone sumarise (i.e. translate into English!) the important information content of the article and give any further infornation about Fixbo and POBA, plus their campervan products?
