Hi, have been thinking about buying a camper van so last week hired one to see how it would work for us.
Overall liked the experience (compared with tent, caravan etc.) though the hired van did highlight likes & dislikes - it was a high roof transit.
I would be interested to hear what others see as essential. For me I would want something bigger than a 3/4 bed hired van had. Don't feel need for fitted loo/shower. Cooker, fridge, sink, water might be good. Roll out awning or maybe a free standing tent seems essential.
People seem to like the VW T5's on here - but expensive, have heard Mercs are cheaper but as good. Any other alternatives? What about ability to stand up inside, this did seem good, but with and awning might not be so vital.
Appreciate any advice, thanks!
