One of the best things about purchasing a converted VW campervan, or having your own vehicle repurposed, is the utter diversity of things you can do with your new vehicle.
Those who get the most use out of their campervan, and find it to be a great investment, see all the different things it can be used for, and even explore and try new things to see just what kind of uses they can put it to.
Some people considering this purchase realise it could be a great part of their holiday making for years to come but still wonder if it will be a good investment, or whether they’ll use it enough to make it worth getting.
If this sounds like you, you could possibly benefit from knowing a little more about all the different applications of a campervan, going beyond the obvious one of simply being able to camp in your vehicle. And even with all the different uses in mind, there are still things you can do to make your holidays more enjoyable, more convenient, cheaper, easier and better in so many other ways.
Let’s take an example: You probably know that when you own a campervan, you can be much more impulsive with your getaways. You have the ability to take a quick break – or a long one – at very short notice, which can be useful if, for example, you find you unexpectedly have a day off work.
This is great by itself, but even knowing this, you could always alter your approach slightly to make it even easier to take that impulsive overnight road trip one Saturday morning.
By keeping the campervan always stocked with blankets, food, water, maps, fuel, books, clothes and whatever else you’re likely to take, you can greatly reduce that time between thinking, ‘I’ve got an idea…’, and actually taking to the road.
Or perhaps you’re someone who recognises the potential of a campervan as a living space that’s more portable than a room and more hardy than a tent. Some may fail to take advantage of that, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore what you can achieve here.
Simply by placing some extra furniture and creature comforts in your campervan, you can create a spare study or even a guest bedroom. And with the current trend for renting out sleeping space through networks such as airbnb, you could even make a little money from your campervan, when it would otherwise by gathering dust on your driveway.
Basically, you shouldn’t hesitate to find new ways to make use of your campervan, whether you’re at home, on the road or on the beach. With so many different ways to get the most out of it, we’ve barely scratched the surface.
