Well as we are continue to understand the new way of life. Here at The Dub Hut we have had the opportunity of meeting so many customers old and new all looking for works to be undertaken on their vans in preparation for more U.K. based travels and adventures in their campers.
We have really appreciated all of our customers patience with many product delays due to Covid and as everything adapts to the new way of life, deliveries are seemingly settling down and arriving within a more sensible time scale.
The Dub Hut team have expanded to accommodate the high demand of works, and we now have Harry who is working in the workshop with Calum, Mac and Andy. Ali has joined Maria in the office on the Administration side of the business and is learning all the aspect of van conversions.
We have also had the amazing opportunity of employing Darren, who now undertakes all upholstery works here at our workshop in Ashford, Kent, this has already proven to be a massive asset to our Company, meaning we can have all of your front seats re-upholstered, 3/4 and full width beds all professionally upholstered on site.
We have leather and threads samples here on site, so you can still continue to choose your design and colour for your seating.
We have never fitted so many pop tops, and as always WestDubs continues to be the most popular pop top choice of Kent. We continue to offer a free upgrade to Marine Quality Scenic Canvas with all WestDubs Orders, as well as all finishing off and wiring run in preparation for your lighting plans.
Many full and part conversions have been undertaken including lots of other van’s – Vauxhalls, Mercedes, Fords and Renaults.
We have been undertaking full conversions works with Lewis from Deal Dubs, who has set up his own VW rental company based in Deal in Kent, check out his website www.dealdubs.co.uk
Our Saturday opening hours will now change to 08.30 – 12:00 during the winters months (November – end of February), as we all enjoy a Saturday movie afternoon by the fire !!!!!
So with Christmas in mind, don’t forget The Dub Hut offer gift vouchers for those people who love their vans but are difficult to buy for – give us a call for more information.
I have left the Dub Hut Pop Top Maintenance Advice, as listed below, as we have had lots of customers asking how best to maintain their pop tops on their annual checks / winter shut downs etc.
With the new lockdown during November now announced, we are pleased to confirm, we are continuing to stay open, however, we will have to restrict customers from visiting us and having access to the Workshop, Office and Showroom for the next month or until we are advised, it is safe to allow customers to return. However, we will continue with the conversions and works we already have booked, as all of the van’s are currently with us and therefore, customers do not have to make unnecessary trips to drop vans off etc.
Take Care everyone and Stay Safe and we look forward to hearing / seeing you all soon.

The Dub Hut – Pop Top Maintenance Advice:
You can clean the Canvas of your pop top with Warm Soapy Water.
Always apply the Elasticated Straps to keep the canvas away from the Scissor Hinges.
Always apply even pressure when pulling the roof down and ensure you have adequate tension when the roof is in the down position.
We would advise annually treating the seams with Fabsil sealer.
Lightly oil the scissor hinges annually and check tightness of all fittings for any movement.
Try to avoid knocking the rubber strip at the front when washing your pop top as this may displace it.
If you need any further information / guidance on your pop top maintenance, please give us a call 01233 733264.
