    Another Newbie

    Hi, just wanted to say what a great and informative site this is. All being well I will be picking up a Toyota Hiace camper van this Saturday, ready for semi retirement with my better half Jackie We used to have 1972 VW camper a few years back when the children were younger. We both ride motorcles and over the last 10 years we have been touring on motorcycles but now our bodies crave comfort and miss the joys of campervan life.

        Welcome aboard.

        Is that Hi Ace camper of a grey import version or a powervan version? It's a great pity not more campers are Toyota based.

        Enjoy your travels

                      Up until 6 months ago I had just that camper.
                      I've had numerous vans but without any doubt that is by far the best layout. The build quality and fittings are 5 star.
                      Everything you need packed into a small van and with space to move the whole length of the vehicle even when the beds are made up..
                      I loved that van but for various reason, nothing to do with the van, it had to go.
                      I'm already envious.

                            Yeah, we used to camp with the bikes, then motels, less gear to carry on bikes and then last year, I rode overland to Greece and Jackie flew out and flew back while I rode back. Just not the same as sharing the journey in comfort in a campervan. Can't wait to get the van and get out on the road. Might have to buy a few goodies but it would be rude not too

                              Speedmaster58 it's the law that you have to buy goodies for new toys
                              you never know what you need till you see it
