The Split Screen Van Club was founded at Stanford Hall in May 1983 by a small group of dedicated Splitty lovers. The main aim of the club is to preserve and celebrate these unique vintage Volkswagen vans and the expertise needed to maintain and restore them. We welcome all owners, families, and enthusiasts of pre 1967 Vans. We are the only national club exclusively dedicated to this vehicle and have approximately 1300 members, but ownership of a Split Screen Van is not a prerequisite for joining.
The majority of our members are based in Britain, but we have a growing overseas membership and are closely linked with our sister clubs in Germany, Holland and the USA as well as having links with VW clubs overseas. Our members' vans range from the pristine and concours vehicle through to the daily use runabout. Many of the vans are Camper conversions but there are also commercial and customised vehicles.
We attend national VW events as a club but also run our own social programme of camping weekends in the UK and Europe. Families with children of all ages are especially welcome in our club and our activities cater for all interests and ages.
This website has recently been resurrected following an extended period of downtime. The current version is a slightly stripped down version to fill the gap while we work on a longer term solution, making it easier for members to access the services provided by the club.
In the meantime, if you come accross any problems while using the website, please let us know.
