    Any caravanners, motorhomers or campers here?

    As EduGeek houses such a cross-section of us from the world of Educational ICT, I was wondering how many of us are into caravanning, motorhoming or camping in our spare time?

    I went caravanning with my parents for many years in my childhood, and got back into it last spring with my wife and kids. Started gently in the spring with a tent and had bought a small caravan by the end of the season!

    Looking forward to getting back out there when the decent weather comes along (hopefully) later in the year.

    Hopefully there's a few of us here and we can get a community going - I've created a group, so if you are a camper at all, please pop on over and join!

    EduGeek Campers - EduGeek.net

    And don't forget to say hello in here.

    Well... I Suppose I'm a camper. But I'm more of a 'if it won't fit into my rucksack it doesn't come' kind of camper.

    I'd love to get into that kind of lightweight camping / hiking. The camping I currently do is in a big solid tent with electricity, gas and preferably Wi-Fi.

    Love camping in a tent. Had to sell my t4 vw camper last year not happy about that but needed the cash. Might get a cheap caravan soon.

    Yep. Used to have a VW camper but sold it a few years ago. I started out with all sorts of nylon tents, but they either broke or aggravated me so much I broke them. Now have a splendid bell-tent which I should have bought in the first place. The model of simplicity, it goes up in 10 minutes and looks great.

    That's really how we ended up going with the caravan. I basically steered us into 'caravanning with a tent' - big tent, all mod cons etc. We were eventually scuppered by weather really - tent was too big for the garden, so ended up having to leave a couple of trips early to keep the tent dry as we had no way to dry it at home. After the second time, I declared enough was enough and found a caravan small enough to tow with the car we had at the time - it wasn't changing much about the camping, just we did it in a solid box which didn't need drying! Then after a couple of trips out I declared the car too gutless pulling the caravan and changed for a bigger car, so we could have had a bigger van.

    I went to the Motorhome and Caravan show at the NEC late last year. There were some really really nice campervans on show there and if I'd have had the money I would have had one in a heartbeat.

    I tend to camp occasionally, mainly on diving trips. Had a caravan years ago but have nowhere to keep one anymore.
