    Recently emptied the piggy-bank to acquire our fine little Transit Campervan, of 1999 vintage. Over the coming months we plan to visit friends and family in Sussex and Cornwall, then looking to conquer Italy and Portugal in due course. Looking forward to a new chapter of holiday experiences, and will be happy never to see another Airport Check-in desk.

    I like modest vans - great fun at a modest cost.

    You want to make some changes, drill some holes, cut some panels? Go ahead - no worries, you won't lose any sleep.

    You'll be able to chuckle when you read threads here about members with spanking new plastic units costing the price of a small house, worrying about drilling holes to mount bike racks/solar panels etc and what polish or wax to use on their GRP skirts - and most of all, almost having a nervous breakdown worrying about someone taking out their door mirror (have you seen what they cost?)........ and I speak from experience.

    Depreciation? :LOL:

    Enjoy your modest travels - I enjoy mine.:)

    Oh, and welcome
