we are new members

Post by petejay on Thu Jan 22, 2015 7:57 pm

Just spotted an Auto-Sleepers Trooper which we like.

We have come full circle as we are not young now.

Over the years we have had caravans and then some years with a MH.

We now feel the call of a small compact camper van.

Thirty years ago we traveled from Phoenixiinto Mexico in a borrowed VW camperI van which had and very much needed AC.
The American members all had gargantuan RVs and there we were in our little VW but we were treated as being very special.
The Americans kept asking us to speak as they wanted to hear our English accents.
I could go on but that is another story.

We do not want to bore you because we are 79 and 74 but looking forward to aquaint ourselves once again with a compact van.

We would appreciate any info regarding what and what not to buy?

Hi there,

A quick PS with regard to "what to buy".

At our age we normally have two of everything so 99% of what you need will already be lurking at the back of the garage or in the loft; seek and ye shall find!

Don't buy anything until you have been out and about in the van on at least two occasions and made a "List of Essentials"; and even then only buy 50% of what you put on the list.  (It's not a matter of economy, more a matter of reality, weight and storage capacity.)

Finally, when you get into using the van regularly, be ruthless with gear and chuck out anything that hasn't been used on the previous two trips (except emergency gear and 1st Aid Kit).

Hope this helps. allthumbz

Best regards,
