- £6,500 to spend on a campervan…
Loads of Mazda Bongos for that price: http://www.igmaynard.co.uk/bongo/marketplace.php?req_time=28052014011641#vehicles%5DPosted 3 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
Personally, I found the Bongo too tight for 4. Pitching an awning removed some of the reasons for using a van, so we bought a tipi instead.
I’m thinking of going the lwb panel van conversion route.
Look on ebay for ‘race van’ and see what comes up. All the conversions are different, but some look ideal as long as you can cope with a long van and not all the creature comforts.Posted 3 years agobacondoublecheeMember
They will come in a bit under your budget but have a look at Autosleeper Ramblers/Autohomes Avalon or the other Talbot express/fiat ducato based conversions. You get everything that a motorhome has but in the footprint if a normal campervan. They are very handy biking vans!Posted 3 years agopictonroadSubscriber
If you want a small footprint van A bit of haggling will get you a 2.4d VW T4 California Club for that cash. Can’t think of anything else on that footprint that I’d tolerate having 2 children in, certainly not a SWB VW or a Bongo.
I haven’t had a larger LT/Iveco size van, they do seem to be cheaper than the equivalent smaller vans but mostly home conversions at that price.Posted 3 years agospooky_b329Member
Check home conversions in person as some can be fairly rough! Also you need to satisfy yourself that any gas installation is safe, and that larger vans are not overweight. Extremely easy to put a lwb iveco over, loads of space but only 1100kg payload which doesn’t go far.Posted 3 years ago
