Camping next time in
Iâ€™ve been thinkingâ€¦ this is what Iâ€™m going to drive when I do. Sadly, I do think that
Hereâ€™s what I want us to drive: A van. Customized like this:
Stealth- so you cannot tell that it is a camper, so we can park on any town square and no one will know if we sleep in it or stay in a local B&B. Weâ€™ll stay in campgrounds when we like, or anywhere the adventure spirit takes us.
Short- And it must be no taller than about 2 meters so it fits in a car park or inner-city parking garage. It can have a pop-top, as long as you cannot tell by looking at it when it is down.
Length- It must be no longer than car-length. Weâ€™ll utilize folding outdoor equipment to enjoy the wonderful weather as we follow the sun.
Contents: Weâ€™ll have a small refrigerator, because weâ€™ll be enjoying picnics and chilled wine, but it neednâ€™t be large, because there is food (and outdoor markets and delightful local food) everywhere, so no need to store large quantities. Weâ€™ll need simple shower hose, cassette (or porta) potty, and one sink. Weâ€™ll hang our towels on the back of the seats during the day to dry as we drive. Light and free!
No limits: There will be no height or length limitations for driving directly into cities, parking, driving onto ferries, paying road tolls, or overnighting.
I think a stealth van is the way to go!
