    Looking to buy
    Hi everyone,

    Having got to an age that my small tent holidays are starting to invoke reasons not to just go, I’ve started looking at campers.

    Fortunately there is a Campervan Hire/Sale company near me here in Nairn. I was able to have a wander around a few different models.

    They had a used California for sale and I was rather taken by it. Seemed to have thought of everything to make living out of a van as easy and practicable as possible.

    After visit I hired a Toyota Granvia (only dog friendly van available for my dates) to see if this type of holiday would work for us all. It did.

    Having been round the California previously, I could compare them both. The Granvia lacked space and certain cupboards unable to access when bed down.

    We had a great holiday, and purchasing our own van is now under serious consideration. Finding it difficult to convince myself that a beautiful California is the answer (when had such a good time away in the Toyota).

    Hopefully with the experience and advice from this forums my head and heart will be as one

    John
