Myself, my wife Jane ,2 young kids and our dog Monty just love the outdoor lifestyle and the versatility of having a campervan. We have owned our camper for 6 years now and it has provided us with so many fantastic memories from days out mountain biking in the New Forest to paddle boarding on the beautiful Dorset coastline and even travelling further afield to holidaying in France and Ireland.
