Camper vans are an exciting way to get away for a weekend or a more extended vacation. They allow you to have the comforts of home while exploring exciting outdoor destinations and making memories with family and friends.
The traditional class B motorhome has many of the amenities of the larger class C, without the cost. The major advantage of this type of coach, in addition to the lower cost, is the ease of maneuvering which allows you the benefit of using it for daily activities on city streets as well as camping in the woods.
The features of this smaller motorcoach include a spacious sleeping area, shower, small bathroom, and generally 2- 4 burners in the cooking area. In addition, many motorhomes have luxuriously appointed interiors, appropriate water systems, air conditioners, and even televisions.
A family of two or four will have a comfortable experience without having to “rough it” outdoors.
Of the classes, the class B camper van is the smallest and the most uniquely suited to the camper who wants a reasonable price, pleasing amenities, and big motorhome capabilities. Considered a hybrid of the class A and class C, it is in a genre by itself. A class B is smaller and does not have the extra space of a bunk over the cab.
Take the Sprinter camper vans, for instance. It can easily keep travelers comfortable as they delight in new and exciting journeys.
Class B motorhomes deliver lovely interior space without sacrificing room to move about in comfort. The Saab camper van, for instance, features an easy-to-pull-out extension for extra sleeping space and a roof that adjusts upward for room to fully stand.
For those who want to move up from the canvas tent or the pop- up camper, the self-sufficiency of a camper van may make the cost worthwhile. Moving around the space and preparing meals without having to build a campfire and bring food and utensils outside is a definite plus.
Class B camper vans are also more affordable than their larger RV cousins. The larger fuel tanks and V10 engines combine to make motorhomes more expensive than the average Class B.
There is nothing as relaxing as sitting around the campfire with family or friends and listening to music or telling ghost stories. Camping, whether in RV campgrounds or in the wilderness, can soothe away stress and harken back to the days when fresh air and sunshine were the norm.
Furthermore, whether your getaway is in summer or fall, you can appreciate the comforts of a shelter that encases you in warmth and a pest free environment.
Road trips provide memories that you and your family will talk about for years, and can provide the practical experience of living without modern conveniences if you choose to “rough it.” The scout’s code of always being prepared can be revived and given a practice run. The healing power of nature may be an old-fashioned notion, but it is just as true today as it ever was.
