I peruse Ebay many times looking wistfully at motorhomes. But reality does eventually kick in. My wife has no intention of camping, caravanning or motor homing. We had a tourer when the kids were young but that was more about cheap holidays, though we all enjoyed it. I still want to have another go, but don't want to be the strange loner on the camp site.
I've done the maths and financially it doesn't make sense. Taking the cost of extra fuel, campsite fees, storage, gas, electric, maintenance etc. It is much easier and more economical to use B&Bs, Hostels etc for accommodation. So I assume for those that do partake it's not about the money.

For us caravanning isn't about the money!  It's chuffin' expensive although I'm certain its possible to spend less money than we do.  For us its about the freedom and mobile lifestyle, as far as we are concerned living in a caravan is much nicer than living in a house.

Next year we shall be doing some long term travelling in the UK then France, I suppose that's when a caravan does cost in as its clearly a lot less expensive than staying in hotels and the like.

We had our first trip of the year in the caravan this weekend.

It was the boys first ever time out in it. He loved it, so we're already making plans for this year.  :thumbsup:

Our new van which we picked up in mid-January.  It's a 2019 Swift Corniche 20/4, basically a dealer special (Wandahome South Cave Ltd) based on a Challenger 580.  Tis a lovely piece of kit and we've used it loads already...

We have just ordered a GoPod micro caravan. Mrs PC wants all the benefits of camping but doesn’t want to sleep under canvas so this is the solution, tiny caravan with a sizeable awning. Photos will follow once we are up and running.
