    Hello everyone just signed up

    Hi everyone just throught I'd say hello. I'm not what would be considered a campervan/motorhome enthusiast as I only have a little suzuki carry van that I use to take my moped to events and shows and use to sleep in when an event or show is over a weekend not tried just going away camping in it yet as I've been busy this summer and the weather hasn't been all that kind to us plus I'm single and don't fancy pulling up at a site sticking out like a sore thumb cos I'm on my own.
    As I need the load space in my van I use a air bed to sleep on, I made a fold down table for the cooker, put curtains up and made hanging bag type of things to hang onto the back of the seats to store plates, mugs, cutlery and utensils in as storage space is at a premium. I would like to do more to the van ideally fit it with an elevating roof fit some side windows in the sliding doors and find an awning for the back to give me some extra space, but it serves it's purpose well and makes for a very comfortable and cosy place to sleep.

    So thats just my little introduction of myself and my van hope to be chatting and picking brains with you all soon.

        Hi, welcome to the site.

        Wouldn't worry about being single, a lot of us on here are solo campers.

                  Hi Martin and welcome. Lots of solo campers in the forum, both sexes, no-one stands out coz we are a real mix of people and vans! All ages, some posh, and some not so posh, some missing a screw or two and that's just the vehicles!

                      This sounds like an excellent practical vehicle to me. I used to do exactly the same as you with an airbed in the back of a Kangoo panel van which I later fitted out very basically for camping while enabling it to still be insured as a commercial vehicle. Your van will also be perfect for stealth wild-camping with no need to use campsites (something I avoid as much as possible).

                      You won't stand out for being a solo camper - I am too and there are many solo campers here.

                          Hi Martin and welcome.

                          Like you a lot of my camping is done staying over night at weekend shows - classic car shows in my case.

                          What moped do you have?
                          Better a rainy day on the hill than a sunny day in the office!

                              I have a 1971 Motobecane Mobylette.

                              So have any of you that use a converted van like mine ever been turned away from a campsite? Back in august on the bank hol weekend I tried to book for one night, I phone a few places where I wanted to be but some said they wouldn't let me just book for one night which is understandable but a few said they wouldn't let me on with, as they put it "a builders van". If I did end up going I would of just turned up with a tent, just wonder if this sort of thing happened to anyone else.
