I would show you all some pics but volksworld won't let me link to their site, take it from me she is lovely, looking forward to a bed whilst the kids sleep in the awning!!

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:29:19

cece Tue 23-May-06 17:30:17

so jealous I drove around Australia in a VW camper

fullmoonfiend Tue 23-May-06 17:32:06

well, if you find out the colour clashes with your Cath Kidston tent... or you just can't find the perfect pair of fluffy dice, just let me know and I'll take her off your hands - no charge, just to be helpful...

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:32:12

hehe its nice that people are everyone in rl thinks we are being irresponsible

cece Tue 23-May-06 17:33:28

Dh would think that, that is why we don't have one

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:34:09

What year is it? We have a 1973 bay camper and it's great.

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:35:14

my dp has finally given in after 7 years of my nagging, dreading it breaking down cause it will be all my fault

fullmoonfiend Tue 23-May-06 17:35:34

why, for FS? I'm sure it makes a very practical runround town. Think of all the shopping you can fit in. They'll be laughing on the other side of their faces when you volunteer to do the school run and can fit 4million kids in the back and rustle up a nice cuppa en route

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:36:03

Hi cupcakes, its a 1971 bay camper, with the low indicators!

cupcakes Tue 23-May-06 17:36:05

ours did break down once...

but at least you can make a cup of tea whilst you wait for the RAC.

cupcakes Tue 23-May-06 17:36:36

you'll be tax exempt!

Blandmum Tue 23-May-06 17:37:03

You lucky devil!

cece Tue 23-May-06 17:37:29

ours broke down too and it is greta to rustle up a cup of tea or dinner while waiting for help!

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:37:52

Its mainly my dad, who thinks that he will be the one coming to tow us when it breaks down, my friends just don't get it, thats bar our beetle owning mates!! Everyone thinks we shoulod be investing in a Voyager or Sedona, cannot wait to do a shop!!!
Cupcakes what interior layout, do you have??

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:39:00

or sit and play cards round the table, yay for tea

fullmoonfiend Tue 23-May-06 17:39:07

ask your dad for membership of Greenflag/RAC whatever - tell him it's in his own interests!

KBear Tue 23-May-06 17:39:22

lucky you - I crave a campervan!

mykidsmum Tue 23-May-06 17:41:06

Thats the first thing we are going to do is join the AA, last guy that owned her said she has never let him down. My dad thinks they are unsafe old technology and no way should I be putting my kids safety at risk in one

fullmoonfiend Tue 23-May-06 17:45:06

Ok, old technology but tried and tested. And a campervan is way more visible than , say a Ford Ka....

(I've had years of practise justifying my fantasy purchase

cupcakes Tue 23-May-06 17:45:24

ours is quite unusual. It has 2 bench seats in the back - the middle one turns round to be either front facing or rear (at the table). There is a coolbox/fridge next to the rear bench with a sink and hob above.
Seats 6. Dh and I sleep in the van and we use an awning for the children.
