Campers on the brain

Posted by daveb on August 13th, 2007

As soon as we realised that the IoW camper van plan was going nowhere, we set off for pastures new stopping off at a pub in Christchurch for a cheap meal-deal lunch which raised our spirits. As we journeyed to our first night in a YHA, we stopped stopped off at various garages to have a look at campers; everything was soooo expensive (in the order of £6500 and upwards). We came across two vehicles which caught our interest: a bright blue VW Baywindow camper (i.e. the surfer-dude type) rusty shell with no interior and a white Land Rover Discovery 200 (available only if the mechanic’s friend, who had previosuly agreed to buy it some time ago, no longer wanted it).

One would make a great refurbishment project (although perhaps not ideal for immediate use) and the other would be wicked 4×4 fun but couldn’t be slept-in. Choices, choices.
