We’ve Bought A Camper

[photopress:b67b_1.JPG,thumb,alignright]We have always said that we would never tow anything, ever! But when we looked closer at the secondhand camper-van market, we came to realise that you really get what you pay for, and for the budget that we are on, you basically get a 15 year old rust bucket that is probably not that safe to drive. We even had an RAC vehicle check done on a camper and the report came back with 50+ negatives and the guy doing the inspection refused to test drive the van as it was not road worthy!

[photopress:b71e_1.JPG,thumb,alignleft]So after much deliberation we decided to buy a newer car with all the mod-cons such as air conditioning and to pull a camper trailer. And yesterday we found and have agreed to buy a 1996 Conway Challenger Folding Camper off a great family, Sue and Dave.

The advantage of the folding camper (as we keep telling ourselves) is that we don’t need any modifications to our car (just a tow bar which was fitted today) and because of the compact size it is easy to tow especially for first timers like our selfs. The camper has a gas hob and sink with electric pump, two double beds, table, full size awning and sun canopy. The camper is in excellent condition and is credit to the previous & current owners. Dave and Sue have two very well behaved daughters, Emily and Kate who helped demonstrate the camper and even made us a cup of tea! So thanks to you all and we look forward in seeing you on Tuesday.

The photos here are from Dave & Sue, we will post some more pics once we pick up the camper.
