    Hi my Wife and I live on Anglesey, at at the mo have a caravan 2 birth swift Fairway 390.
    We are going to trade it in sometime next yr for a Romahome.
    Over the yrs we have had a few campervans and done some wild camping,:Smile: but due to the local council not likeing the size of our camper staying by our house we got rid od it.:cry::Doh:
    So now i have found out that if we get a small campervan and use it instead of a car they can not do any thing about it lol:thumb:
    we are retired so wish to jest go travel.

    We have recently bought a 1988 Renault Master for this same reason. we can park it in front of our house as it is tall and slim! we have a rear garden and could at great expense make a driveway from the side rd. but too expensive and someone would no doubt park in front of it.
    We just did 600 miles in 4 days ....Camargue and Provence, had a great time. (with dog).

    We sold the car, it just sat there depreciating and getting an extra ding in the bodywork every week from the 'yummy mummies' in their 4 wheel drives dropping off their little darlings at the nursery school at the end of the road.

    the van's big enough for the two of us, plenty of headroom , yet small enough to do a supermarket shop, easy enough to slot in.

    thanks Beckysharp

    thanks:BigGrin: is it a dz or petrol, what mpg are you geting.
    So glad you enjoyed your 600 tour:thumb::thumb: and the fact that it fits into a normal carpark space.
    What type renault is it, the older shape or the newer shape ?.
    What about the bed is it hard to put together ?.

    Enjoy it
