    Well we've been and gone and done it!! :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We've bought a caravan!:Eeek::Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    Will we be excommunicated??:Wink:

    We're going to sell the Knaus and buy a LWB conversion to tow the caravan to Spain and leave it there :Smile:

    Excommunicated ? Never, but we may well start speaking to you slowly and enunciating each word carefully so you understand us and with an a slightly condecending smile on our faces.

    All the best

    Even the Incredible Pitstop won't be able to dig it deep into the bowels of Spain.

    They may even park it at a good site.

    Often thought about a Van Conversion plus a caravan and to leave the caravan in storage over the summer in Spain.

    Use the Van for touring in the summer and then pull the caravan onto the site for the winter.

    As yet I just can't get my head around the lack of space in a conversion.

    Good luck with your new combo, you'll have to let us know how it works out, pros and cons.

    Having a van parked in Spain is a great idea if you have other family members who can also use the van or join you for extended stays. Gives you great flexibility. I do similar using my Pennine, not quite but nearly a caravan. We all get use of it. Great idea without the long term commitment of owning a static.:thumb:

    Now as you well know Bob,:Nowink: everything about motorhoming is a complete compromise,:Tongue1: I could list a hundred positives for owning a VW as I could for choosing a Pennine over a full blown caravan.:thumb:

    A few examples......why drive a super duper California that will fit under any height barrier if you are going to be restricted by the height of your caravan......The Pennine can become a caravan in two minutes on any ground, no pegging required.......Why have a vehicle that delivers unbelievably fantastic MPG, then spoil it with a full size caravan in tow’.......The Pennine when being towed sits below my rear view so you don’t even know it is there.......On site with the awning up the Pennine has four large proper beds and huge living areas that can also sleep if required........ Would you like me to continue?:Cool:

    after all this time e comes clean

    At long last Buttons comes clean.. he has us all believe he and his all got in to that VW .. you know the one that does 98 mpg:Wink: But now we know where the toilet is.. it is in the trailer behind.... so Buttons has to take two vehicles also when he goes away... a lot of us tow, and have the car at the end of the journey... we sleep, eat and yes use a toilet in the RV or motor home...... now Buttons the question.... do you sleep in the VW and go tot he trailer bit or do you sleep in the trailer bit? we know there is not much room in your (day van....cannot bring myself to say motor home) vehicle.... but it has taken a very very long time to get the skinny on this.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    To be serious, if leaving you belongings in it in storage you need an alarm and possibly a small solar panel to keep it running.

    is it any less at risk in Spain?

    Is the caravan any less at risk in Spain than the UK? look how many go walk about. Is the storage secure? I would have worries myself... with the RV outside the door I can hear the alarm and keep an eye on my property... a 1,000 miles away? .. no, not for me.
