Van of the Month – Sam’s Campers

June 13th, 2011

Off to Treheli Farm in Pwlheli, Gwynedd tomorrow night. The place looks intense. One week looking out on the Irish Sea is definitely what the doctor ordered and I can’t wait. Had a total result getting an almost new £250 Royal Traveller awning for £60 today which was very pleasing and it will be really great having an awning on the side of the van. So seven days of camping, reading books (particularly looking forward to getting stuck into the History of Love by Nicole Krauss), taking snaps, drinking wine and generally chilling the hell out. Bliss.

Here’s a photo of the view from Treheli Farm I found on the net. Looking forward to taking some shots of my own. The bay is Hell’s Mouth on the Lleyn Peninsula, looks more like heaven to me.

Anyway, getting ever more laid back in my attitude to van of the month. This is because, I’m pretty keen to show everyone the new version of Camperbug which is a week or so behind schedule. There’s some lovely new functionality built into Camperbug 2 and when I look at the current site, it lacks a certain something. I’ve commissioned some great illustrations for version 2 and the current cheesy header with my van on it, doesn’t quite cut the mustard anymore!

***Update October 16th 2014 – Unfortunately the owner has decided not to hire out the van below anymore ***

So back to van of the month, and before I even know it 2 weeks of June have passed.

I was looking at Sam’s van and reading his profile description and he exemplifies the reasons that Camperbug was created. So that normal people can rent out their vehicles, to friendly interested others, when they’re not using them. So to Sam from Wokingham in Berkshire, a chap with a van and occasional renter your orange bay is this month’s van of the month.
