    Big change to smaller ways

    Hello,
    Found these forums most instructive. So first a big thanks to everyone who inputs such helpful answers.
    I am due to move from my 1987 VW T25 Auto Home Kadett to a 1993 C15 HiLo so the variety of answers to questions filled lots of gaps in my
    knowledge.

      Welcome to the forum, we have quite a few people on here who have downsized so they may be able to help with any questions. Good luck, hope you love your new van.

            The smaller the campervan the more intelligent the use of space... its a formula.
            Your Kadett would have been fairly ideal though, apart from the mad fuel condsumption of that DG engine.
            My last run to Cornwall in a T25 1.9 - £180 each way
            ...Last run in Berlingo Romahome Duo £65 each way.

            What did you do with the Kadett?
            Aircooled VW Camper nut!

              Yes, this applies to the design of the van...but I am still striving to be more intelligent in MY use of the space available!

              Hi, welcome to the forum from me, too .
              Carpe diem! :)

                Just over a year ago Carole and I changed from a medium sized towed caravan to a Romahome Hilo. We also wondered, is it big enough? The toilet under the sink, is the area large enough? Surprisingly, yes it is! Etc., etc. After we had disposed of the mountain of unused equipment we had kept stowed in the caravan we then packed in the Romahome only the minimum of what we thought we would need. The next few trips we adjusted that need (only 2 cups, 2 plates and so on). It is amazing, you don't need very much when you list it all. Best of all, it is so easy to leave home at a moment's notice, arrive at a campsite and set up or leave at a moment's notice. Now we are camping much more than we have ever done.
                I think we all at first have this fear, no, we'll never fit in there. You will, you know, and you'll love it. You just have to take that first step...........
                Good luck and welcome. Graham and Carole

                  Personally I would love to take that first step now that I am solo.
                  Unfortunately unless I win the lottery there is no way I can afford a romahome.

                    Robin there is always hope, someone in Mansfield not a million miles away from Nottingham won £42 million on the euro lottery.

                    That would buy a nice van.

                    No hope for us, we don't do the lottery.

                        Perhaps she meant she wanted it to go in Wollaton Hall when she'd bought it.
