As me and my bloke are getting on in years and finding camping a bit too much for our old bones, we decided to buy a 'motorhome'. So about 18 months ago we got Myfanwy. This is what she looked like when we got her

Very very jealous!

Mr C and I travelled round New Zealand in a camper-van for our honeymoon and I have to say that it's a way of life that I could get very accustomed to!

Myfanwy is the best thing we've ever bought. I wanted a nice shiny 'proper' camper van but we just didn't have the money, so we went down the converted horsebox route. She's 30 years old but being a Mercedes engine, she starts every time with no bother and the engine is very basic, so there's not much to go wrong but at 7.5t, she's a bit of a handful to park on the drive but she's so very useful when we go to festivals to give the workshops. I do feel rather spoiled now, after spending all my holidaying life under canvas and my bell tent is feeling a bit neglected, but at least we can now extend the camping season and stay warm and dry. The only trouble is that because she's so big, we have got a couple of lodgers who now come camping with us quite a lot and my son's friends get to have sleepovers.

If anyone wants a camper, I would suggest you go down the large van/horsebox route, you get to kit it out how you want it and it works out a LOT cheaper than buying a ready made one.

I am definitely jealous, my mum and her husband have sold almost everything and now live in their camper and are travelling around Aus. I want to do this too one day, but for hubby it will have to be airconditioned Razz

Awesome!

We decided to buy a new camper (a Jayco Swan) after spending $1000 on accomodation for a week when my dad got remarried. We though it woul dbe much cheaper accomodation for holidays. This was we get to go away about twice a year rather than only once every 2 years.

We love it. We're up one nd, then littlies up the other and teh teenager out in his tent (room inside if he does need though)

Another jealous admirer ! We once hired a camper and went around Scotland for a week. So much better than camping in that climate, as it tended to rain for at least some part of every day.
We still talk about buying a camper van every time we see one, but there always seems to be something else that needs money throwing at it.
Just have to hope for that lottery win...
