When it comes to my campervan life, I have three top priorities – comfortable bed, comfortable bed, comfortable bed. I realise that this is not the same for everyone and, for you, it might be things like headroom, indoor loo, three-way fridge, or solar energy. I want these too but I find that I cannot really enjoy my camping if I can’t get a good night’s sleep and for me, that means an exquisitely comfortable bed. Fortunately, I have found one…Continue reading “I Have Found my Forever Campervan Bed!”
So what are the really important things you need to think about when you choose a campervan? To find out, I spoke to expert, Adam Coombe from Northstar, specialist converters on the Isle of Wight. He gave us five, main points that every campervan buyer should consider before choosing their design.
Oh, and by the way, don’t forget the cat litter box…Continue reading “Ask the Experts: What to Consider When Choosing a Campervan Design with Adam from Northstar”
So, what do you do if you want to change your campervan? I don’t mean selling the van, but what if you feel that the current layout is not working for you anymore?
Perhaps your circumstances have changed or maybe it was never what you really wanted when you designed it and now you really want YOUR van. Well, this is what happened to us when we changed our camper to not only fit our style of camping, but also to adapt to changes in our life and the world in general…Continue reading “Don’t be Afraid to Change Your Campervan”
Glyn and I are just back from the Isle of Wight where we ordered our new Toyota Alphard campervan from Northstar Conversions. This time we are not going to convert it ourselves as we did with Big Red, our Vivaro, (don’t think our relationship would survive it!). This time we are having a bespoke design based on Northstar’s new mobile office/weekend camper concept which is totally brilliant and is what really works for our current style of camping. Let me tell you more…Continue reading “Yay, We Have a New Campervan (well almost)!”
One of the most exciting decisions you will make in your life is to buy your own campervan. You may choose to buy a ready-made campervan or maybe you are brave enough to buy an empty van and convert it yourself. Either way, one of the major choices you will need to make is what sort of style you want for the interior.Continue reading “What is Your Campervan Style?”
Ooohh it feels good… we have just started to build the bed and in a campervan conversion that often means that you are getting near to completing the main build (not that they are ever really finished of course).
OK, I know that sounds a bit weird but I’m not talking about the van actually saying good morning to you when you wake up (although that would be just brilliant), I mean communication in subtle ways. Because I swear that our van ‘Big Red’ is telling us what he wants and what he doesn’t want as we continue to convert it. Let me explain…
Not a campervan but soooo want one of these – a foldout, grown-up’s Wendy house. Not only is it a really clever use of space design (the bed is king size, what’s not to like!) it is as cute as hell. Could camping be any more fun!
Starts at around £20,000 so won’t be happening any time soon but maybe one day…sigh
