    Currently trying to find a camper that somebody has bought and hasn't used or abused... Maybe I need to wait till autumn when prices drop a little.

    SWMBO has decided we should invest in a camper and tour the UK, possibly Europe too if we take to it...

    Missed a cracker last weekend on eBay but hopeful another will come up that isn't vastly overpriced..

    Looking for a Non-VW 4 berth for the space if anybody knows of one for sale, ideally around £25 -£30k tops and 2010 or later...

    My mate will build you a camper van of your specs newer than a 12 plate. I've seen pics of a couple he's done. PM me if interested.

    DVLA are clamping down in reclassifications on conversions, there are loads getting them refused even with pop tops, windows etc it seems the police want it to look like a motor home even if you meet their current criteria. Someone did mention as well it could be something to do with the emissions charge in London as if it’s a camper you don’t get charged but you do if it’s a normal van.

    How far off is your retirement?
    I'd get started now and join the queue down at Dover that's apparently going to build up quickly.
    make sure all your visas are up to date.

    I think I'd rather buy a purpose built motorhome if honest, I am looking to buy one, use it then update or sell completely with minimum depreciation or fuss. I just need to find the right layout at the right price. I might need to wait for the "summer" to end... I can't justify a new one as I fear I will lose too much.

    Thanks for the reply though
