Hit the road and experience it your way in a Campervan

Campervans can accommodate a couple or a whole family comfortably and are similar to motorhomes and are built inside the confines of a van body with sleeping, refrigeration, sink, cupboards cooking and dining facilities. Often the roof is raised higher for easier standing and mobility.

Standard equipment – as in all caravans – includes water tank, stove and refrigerator. Top of the range deluxe campervans can feature heated/air-conditioning, shower/toilet, large double bed and a fully equipped kitchen including microwave, gas stove and refrigerator.

Tent trailers typically comprise of a box trailer, used to store cooking and camping equipment, plus a lift-out tent for sleeping and living space.

The Camper Trailer is a low profile caravan with a wind-up roof and extendable bed sections at either end of the trailer.

Both are compact and popular for off-road use with their light mass and low wind resistance and are easy to tow and are often suitable for smaller tow vehicles.

The units are generally easy to set up, and are the most effective way to get into caravanning, however, you will need to consider the size of your family either growing or diminishing to ensure your requirements are matched. Another area to consider prior to purchasing is the ‘living area’ to ensure your holiday is enjoyable.


Things to consider

  • Flexibility for year round use, doubling as a vehicle for normal, private transport while at home
  • Low touring costs
  • Flexible overnight stay locations
  • Limited storage facilities
  • Possibly too confining to stay in for long periods of time

Preparing To Buy

Before you set off to the showrooms or dealers, take the time to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Where do you plan to go in your campervan? – Do you want to go off road with it?
  • How much space do you need inside? (Consider how many people will sleep in it and storage requirements)
  • What basic home comforts do you require?
