I have lovely childhood memories of our family camper van. My parents used to take our family of seven away in our 1958 Split screen Camper Van to travel around Europe and UK back in early 70’s. I remember that camper van drivers would honk and wave as they passed each other. Do they still do this now I wonder?

It is becoming very popular for couples to incorporate camper vans into their weddings, either for the wedding itself or for the honeymoon. I thought I would look into what was available for the bride and groom and discovered a whole camper van world of possibles.

Vintage Camper 

Whilst researching Camper van hire I came across this fantastic website. Vintage Camper is a fantastic resource for camper van enthusiasts. The company was set up by husband and wife team who are camping fanatics that got fed up with not being able to find stylish and unique camping products.  Their website not only directs you to recommended companies offering top of the range camper van hire, but also to a list of campsites and camper van festivals, camping tips, camping food, etc. They have then searched high and low to feature a fantastic collection of the most stylish and cool camping accessories. Each product is hand selected for quality style and originality.
