Campers come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you’ve got plenty of choices to configure the perfect camping van. At Swansway Motor Group we help customers buy camper vans every day, so here we’ve written a guide to help you find the perfect camper too.
The biggest part of buying a campervan is working out what you need and want from it. Ask yourself:
If you’re planning to spend a lot of time in your camper van you want to make sure you’re comfortable, this might mean splurging on a few added luxuries, which is much better than not getting them and regretting it.
One of the most important aspects is you need to know how many beds and travel seats you’re going to need. Stick to the numbers that will be travelling with you regularly as you can always add an awning with extra beds for spontaneous visitors.
Your budget will really help you determine which camper vans are available in your budget, it’s good to be open to both new and used camper vans as you’ll have the best chance of finding what you want without going over budget.
You may be surprised to find out that camper vans are one of the slowest depreciating modern vehicles, even when bought from new, with the Volkswagen California holding its value better than its competition.
It depends on how much you’re planning to convert it is the simple answer. If what you’re looking for in a camper is already configured and available, it’s going to be cheaper to buy the one that’s already been done, but if what you want is completely custom you’ll need to involve a conversion company anyway. At Swansway Motor Group we work with conversion companies all the time to help our customers, simply get in touch with one of our VW Van Centres for assistance.
The most reliable camper van on the UK market today is the VW California, known and loved for being an icon in the camper world it’s also going to last you so there’s no need to worry about getting your money’s worth.
