Campervan

The campervan is one's escape to the Gipsies' way of life, the time of a holiday, when you turn your car into your house. We got ours on 19 December (2019): a Volkswagen T6. It is great despite having caused us plenty of problems initially due to the poor job of the company which converted it—Starlight Campers—due to insufficient expertise with things that they don't do routinely, as is documented in this page. We had professionals fix it and now it's working great.
