We sleep up top all year too (unless a gale is blowing). We use a wrap around topper (rainbow thermal screens) - keeps the heat in and significantly reduces condensation (used together with the windscreen cover), and our duvet from home.Hi folks,
We are fairly new to the camper van experience so to date this being our first season we have stayed on caravan/camp sites.
We have joined a couple of clubs e.g. camping and caravan club and caravan and motor home club so we can test out their various sites for our short breaks.
With the season now over many sites have closed but we want to try a few one night stops if we foresee a fine crisp and cold sunny day or two or we thought why pay for a hotel if your visiting somewhere for a night? Is there an obvious website or forum which identifies any simple/basic stop off points, country pubs&inns, village car parks, farms etc with just a few pitches that are deemed safe and will get you by for a one night stop? (Assuming the obvious that lay by's are not deemed suitable due to traffic noise and potentially dangerous)
Hoping there is a guide of secret places where the camper van community have shared knowledge??
Second question do you sleep on the ground floor rather than in the pop up when it comes to keeping warm in winter?
Thanks for any thoughts and advice,
With that setup we have the heating on 2-3 while sitting downstairs in the evening, but we switch off when we go to bed. Never had it that cold, but -3°C was fine like this.
