    Hello all , I joined short while ago but today paid my subs , had my first camper van about 1985 - was a VW bay window , kept until it was a bit of a squeeze for 5 of us , then moved to a caravan for a while then back to a tent , then about 10 years ago bought another VW - a T25 or type 3 van as our kids had grown up and we were back to holidays on our own + 2 dogs , still have the T25 but also bought a
    Compass Calypso on a VW T4 chassis four years ago and just back home yesterday from our latest
    trip of 600 miles starting two weeks ago at Llangollen then a week in Blackpool then back into Wales
    to finish up in Aberystwyth then back home , we are away quite often and are members of the C&C club and motorhome section plus Caravan club which we joined whilst on holiday in the lake district
    at Coniston water .
    I live near Abergavenny in S.Wales within the Brecon Beacons national park .
