... of van that is, we currently have a Ford Freda pop top camper which we are thinking of taking to the French Alps in late spring. It suits us for weekends in the UK but if we enjoy are first Europe trip we are thinking of maybe an upgrade. I need a van ideally that can be used on a daily basis, that can negotiate country lanes (lakes, Peak District etc) two berth with a toilet /shower. Am i right in thinking a van conversion would be better or is there a coach built that would be just as suitable? Also what are the pros and cons of either type of van? resale, rust/fatigue finish etc. cheers manners.
