VW type campers really come Ito their own if you're cruising about exploring places. Staying a couple of nights somewhere, moving on, find a little secluded bay and stop over with a great view, campsite for another couple of nights etc. Brilliant in france where you can stopover on aires for free often in some amazing places and mix it up with campsites.
We bought our van after a trip camping in Scotland and a wet weekend on mull stuck in a damp tent watching a Swiss family playing in the sea and then sitting down at a table in their t4 camper eating a hot meal and drinking hot drinks whilst we were freezing in a tent.
Someone earlier said, you can get out forthe day in the winter and watch storms at the coast sat there with a cuppa and the heater on all toasty after a walk or bike ride.
Funnily enough you don't keep going back to the same places in the van like we used to in a tent. You don't worry about moving on if somewhere isn't great as its so easy. Don't think I'd be so relaxed about moving on with one of those massive tents, windbreaks, cookers, kitchen sink units you see people with...
We use ours as a daily driver but don't have to commute. We've just bought our second one as we used the last one so much. I think either you get it or you don't. My sister thinks we're mad.
