Welcome to Campervan Capers!

If you are thinking of getting a campervan or already have one – whether it’s VW size or a more spacious motorhome – I hope you’ll enjoy reading the mini adventures of me and my partner, Steve.

Our maiden year of campervanning took place with the help of our Autosleeper Flair which we bought back in August 2009.  And the aim of the blog was to share some of our funny stories, reflections, impressions of our destinations, as well as to pass on any tips we picked up along the way.

The blog sprang up from my itchy-footed enthusiasm, as well as my enjoyment of writing & photography.  And I’ve now published a book  named after the blog (err… or was it the other way around?…  Anyway, see THE BOOK tab for info on that).

After much avid travelling, and posting on the blog, I realised I needed to prioritise my other writing projects (see my books on the Pyjama Writer website), so things have been put on hold on the travel-blogging front for the time being.  However, the blog is packed with info & pix which I hope you’ll enjoy picking through.  I also post now & then with odd snippet of news or offer on my work.  And, by the way, you can get Campervan Capers 2 (which is based on the 2011 blog entries) as a free download to read at your leisure (again, see THE BOOK tab for info).

Since our early adventures, we have let go of our trusty old Autosleeper and decided on a more compact & economical Romahome.  Unfortunately, the ‘Tardis’ motorhome we would love to own has not yet materialised (ie one that’s small & easy to manoeuvre on the outside whilst having pots of room on the inside).

Feel free to subscribe to the blog – you never know what news or adventures might appear in your Inbox up the track! – or join me on the Campervan Capers Facebook page, where there is a bit more of a pulse!

I hope you enjoy reading!

    Great blog we enjoy our Autosleeper as well. Think I enjoy tinkering about with it as much as using it.

    • We don’t have the Autosleeper now, I’m afraid. We sold it and got a Romahome. Had this for a few years and only just sold it the other week. The guy who bought it from us also seems to be a tinkerer!

  4. Highly informative ideas, backed with research and experience. This is something that I have been looking for. Thanks for such a great job. Keep it up!

  5. Hope you can share with us your adventures:)

    Super blog, and some great photos. I think you may already be members of ASOF – if any other owners of AutoSleepers are reading and interested the Auto Sleeper Owners Forum can be Googled or http://www.asof.co.uk and click on forum.

    • Thanks for your comment, Ed. No, we’re not ASOF members. Sorry to disappoint, but we’ve recently sold our Autosleeper and have now got a Romahome… Further info will be blogged & added to the site shortly to keep our avid subscribers updated.

  9. hey there!
    nice blog!
