    Campervan

    I'm considering buying a campervan. I may be insane.

    It's a T3 Kameo from 1989 and looks in pretty good shape.

    Thoughts and comments welcome.

    Ps. Would an A2 TDi75 engine and gearbox fit do you reckon?

    If you have space for a camper van and can afford it, then to me it is a "no brainer"

    One of my best holidays was many years ago when I travelled around Scotland in a transit campervan.

    The huge advantage they have is that you can just drive to anywhere you want and you don't have to plan your accommodation ahead.

    We went to some very sleepy and remote villages and because we did not have to be "back at the B&B / Hotel" at a specific time, we could be even more adventurous.

    I like the VW versions old (fantastic) and newer shapes.

    So a big jealous yes from me!!!!!

    Thanks Steve. Space, no. Public street parking, yes.

    Thinking of the North Coast 500! Amazing scenery and only a few hours away.

    Go for it, I have always wanted a camper van but a lot of then are well above what I could afford. Like Steve says you can do what you want, when you want. When I was younger long time ago I may add, my mum and dad had a caravan and we went every where. Great memories and great holidays, we used to go camping me and my other half and kids, and I enjoyed that but the gaffer put the blockers on that as she wants a bit of luxury now as we get older lol. But yea get it bought, you won't regret it. Regards Spud

    From the picture it looks fantastic. I had my one and only visit to Scotland in a camper when i was about 5 (I'm now 48) i had a little hammock bed and loved it. Go for it. Its probably a good investment. cheers mike

    Thanks everyone. Very good feeling so we put the deposit down.

    It needs a fair bit of work cosmetically and the interior is a bit worn down - plumbing, electrics and so on - but the engine looked well maintained, pulled well, and the body's seen a lot of repair and attention recently. Now to plan some getaways!

    Ps. A2Sumo - it comes with a super-cool hammock in the front which is the width of the van across above the front seats! It looks amazing! Happy memories for my wee one here we come.
