I'm thinking of swapping our caravan for a PVC. The kids dont want to come along any more and we fancy touring places with narrow roads(I always hated towing).
I fancy a PVC, and I thought they'd be cheaper than a motor home, but no pretty much £50k. Really !
You can buy a new van for 20k, a small caravan with all the habitation bits in is 15k, so shouldn't a brand new van with habitation be about 35k?
So I've been reading various #vanlife
blogs featuring pretty young 18 girls who have converted a van by them selves in a few weeks, for like $4000, and they all look amazing (the vans that is) . And then i look at how to video's and errm well I think its beyond me, I can lay a laminate floor but that's about it. ( There's no way the various gorgeous people have converted their vans, they'd break a nail. I do not believe it).
So I looked at converted vans like maybe a Devon Aztec, but even thats 38k, on a 2nd hand van.
I guess my question is, how do I get a cool looking van like everyone
on the internet has for sensible money ?
If I bought a van and paid for it to be converted, I maybe could get a van for £10,000 and convert for £17,000 ? But is that really cheaper than buy a factory made one. Why are they so expensive ?
Is my best bet to just trawl ebay ?
blogs all have pine clad PVCs but I cant see any firm that will do that. Is that cheaper ? I'd have thought not.
My budget is maybe 20k, maybe 25K at a push. Whose got 50K to blow on a van ? - Lots of people I guess.
Am I missing something?
