    been there, done that before they were born, it's not all that great, and living in a vdub.. even if she was thrown in, no thanks.

    Well, to list all my parkups over the last 30 years would take a long, long time!

    (but very, very, very few were campsites)

    Currently parked up at Portimao Marina (Praia da Rocha).

    I understand it wasn't that great for you Jim but it has been brilliant for me...

    I live in my van as a lifestyle choice.

    Never even sleep one night in my apartment...

    If my kids visit they stay in the van too (or my son books into a luxury hotel).

    you misunderstand JJ.. I said living in a vdub no thanks

    I enjoyed my 3 years living in the RV.. but not for ever and not with a family.. I'd probably do it again if single.. that would be quite different..

    The term 'living in a van' is a bit vague I think. First what is living? Is it every day & night using it as if it were a house? And a van? How big? 4, 5,6,10 metres long? 2, 3, 4 wide 2, 3, 4 metres high? On your own? With partner? With family? static, mobile? with utilities?
    I have spent the last 18 months all but sleeping in the van every night but am i living in it when is in the garden?

    And some people don't think kids are a burden, so include them in the original dream.

    dont bother with most of it ,daughter opens and sorts it anything needing atention she rings us and we sort it . we have done plenty for our kids (and still do) so they are quite happy to do this for us . most people we deal with are used to the way we live by now so not a problem . no doubt there are some who would find aproblem with this but it works for us .(y)(y)(y)STAN
