Reasons for having a campervan vary from customer to customer, but here are a few examples:
A campervan offers instant shelter from the elements - used with a tent, it offers the certainty of a dry night’s sleep. With unpredictable weather, traditional camping can be a risky business especially if the weather turns foul!
Or simply as a vehicle, it offers the perfect mode to have a drive out into the countryside and take in the scenery and stop for a bite to eat.
You can even use a campervan as a small vehicle to support your hobby such as photography, fishing, cycling or walking or to transport you and your dog out to nice place to take a walk.
The list is endless and not simply for the one or two holidays a year. Having a campervan offers lots of freedom and comfort as well as making your life more fun.
It’s certainly more fun!
Let’s face it, life is tough these days and we are all working too hard so why not find some time for leisure? A camper van can provide that rare escape!
It’s surprising what a day trip can do for your morale and it is good for our health too.
We personally endorse campervans – we use ours to take our Jack Russell out for a walk somewhere different and for days out to the coast.
But our campervan is also our everyday vehicle so there isn’t a huge sum of money just sat on the drive waiting to be used.
Our small campervan will have a bed, a hob unit and a sink, i.e. all the basics of a campervan but obviously compromises have to be made. Put simply, if you have a small van, you will have limited space inside but the campervan must still be practical. For instance, we think that a good, comfortable bed is near the top of the list of essential items, followed by a small hob and sink so you can prepare simple meals and drinks.
