Just saying like.
Exactly, before you buy one just sit down with a pen and paper and work out how many days away you will get a year "A". Then work out how much the caravan will stand to loose in value over a year, plus the cost of insurance, plus the cost of any storage, plus the cost of site fees "B". then divide B by A and imagine what sort of a hotel you can get at that price per night.
Nights away in a year: 25
loss of value on a caravan (usually 15% a year, 20 in the first): £3000
Storage: £1000 (going off the cheap example in the post)
site fees: £25 per night (forgetting gas, electric, people) 25x25 = £625
so total cost is: £4630
divided by 25 = £185.20 per night.
Imagine what sort of a holiday you could have spending £185.20 a night? and non of them make you empty a barrel of your own shit and piss each morning, or make you clean your own room, or make you join a club of utter and complete wankers, no one will hate you for been on the road holding up miles of traffic, its better on the environment, its better for everyone. For the love of god don't do it to your self and the rest of the world.
ps campers are soo cool
