"His knowledge of all things air-cooled is pretty amazing, and his visits are a combination of help and education.“

   - Chris; Michigan


“Other VW owners have said its easy to do things like adjust the points and check the hoses, but it all just seemed like a foreign language to me. I watched videos, poured over manuals, but I still didn’t have the confidence to get my hands dirty. Robbies time and talent helped put so many pieces together for me. I feel like I understand my van so much more now. Robbie is a patient and skilled teacher and he helped me connect even more with my van today. I think I’m finally beginning to understand her language."

"After a few weeks of trying to get my bus to start, we finally arranged a FaceTime call with Robbie for some help. He quickly ran us through a troubleshooting workflow that got us pointed in the right direction. Even after the call, Robbie kept in touch via text with more suggestions and ideas and eventually we sorted all my issues and got it running."

"From the minute Robbie promptly showed up at 8:30AM in his bus (Buddy) to the minute he left, it was a day full of hands-on bus education! From front to back, we went over so many big and little things-which was a perfect overview. He was INCREDIBLY patient, and you can tell he loves what he does and he loves TEACHING people!"

   - Heather; New Hampshire


"I’ve owned my VW for a few years. While I’ve done my best to learn about my van, the process has been slow. Forums are complicated and often have misinformation, my Bentley feels like it’s written in a foreign language, and my mechanic, while great at fixing my van, is anything but helpful when I ask any sort of question beyond "do you take MasterCard?" Enter Robbie. We met up in Southern California for a van spa day. He not only helped me fixed my van, but taught me more about it in three hours than in my past three years of ownership. I left feeling more capable as a VW owner and excited to feel like the world of VW maintenance–which was formerly elusive and unattainable–is now within grasp. Thank you so much, Robbie!”
