    Was thinking about hiring one but want it for days out and short brakes. So hiring for week or two wouldn't help, anyway have purchased one now. Keeping the Caravan also. Trouble now filling garden up with Vehicle's 2 Cars, 2 Vans and 3 Caravans let hope neighbour's don't start complaining.

    Hi
    Well brought Campervan Swift Royal 590 Fiat Ducato 2.5 Diesel.
    Cost quite a bit more than 6000 I was thinking about.
    Learning about it at moment dif to my caravan.
    Have to see our it goes need to change the way we Holiday now as both can't walk very far. But brought it mainly for days out and and short brakes. Hope to take it to Scotland and try some wild camping.
    Going to keep Caravan for our main Holidays. But if we get on with Campervan who knows what will happen.
    Got bike rack on back so have to try if I can ride bike but last time tried Arthritis stopped me would be good to follow wife's Mobility scooter to local shops, could always leave her in Van and use her scooter.
    Happy Caravanning or Campervanning

    Yes lots of Campers with dif lay outs but to be expected. I am looking for one with two long seats so as not to have to make up bed. There are some really nice ones out there but some awful was as well and some that dont exist just trying to sreal your money.
    The email address I got from scammers ended in  .me looked up it is Montenegro.
    Dont want to pay to much as not sure will like it and want a good one to be able to sell again not losing money.

    That seems a lot of condensation, they sell inner roof panels which I have but never used. Keep meaning to put them up but to lazy.
    It looks like you are pitched in wood protected by trees when pitched in open field or on sea front you will notice the difference between air and awning with strong poles.
    Found away to pull awning around on own. I use two bungee straps and length of rope hook bungee into eye in awning tie rope to other end of bungee pull on rope then tie to rear caravan handle push awning from front in to awning rail when tension released take up tension again you have to repeat this till awning in place.

    CAMPERVAN
    Hi
    Have been looking at cheap Campervan just to go out for days or occasional night away not giving up Caravan. Been looking at Talbot Auto Sleeper with 2LTR petrol engine it is the Luton type.
    What I would like to know is the fuel consumption of these 2LTR petrol. Diesel ones seem to go for more money. Also I have had problems with the 2.5 diesel engine I had in my Ducato van cracking Heads.
    Any feed back would be welcome.
    Looking at spending max £6000
    Happy Caravanning Monty

    Static loads of rules as has been mentioned.
    If you get party loving neighbour you are stuck with them.
    My father had both Static and Tourer  Static having parties nearly every weekend and problems with there dogs. He finished up with Touring Van.
