    American residing in Southwestern France, started camping in U.S. 1968 VW Camper, then upgraded to an Avion Pick-up camper, shipped it to Nurenberg, GE (U. S. Military), then back to VW Camper in Belgium, then tried Avion Trailer for three years but never fully adjusted to towing. Started Camping again in Europe in 1997 with Class C Cabover (French Autostar) then a Class C Profile (Autostar). Kept the profile for 15 years travelling through Europe and 188,000 km, sold it last month.
    We will pick up our new Font Vendome Leader Camp Van 5.99 m long sleeps 3 on 15 November. Difficult to wait until to pick it up. We will probably tour Italy or Portugal Jan Feb timeframe to test it. Always great to speak with British Campers in Campground and Aires de Service in Europe.
