With a camper van, no more questions, it is easy to park in parking lots or in parking areas along the streets. Easier than a car !
- The camper van is the discretion guaranteed !
And besides, you go completely unnoticed on the road… Or almost.

This type of vehicle is found to be generally less expensive than to buy a classic motorhome, although it depends on the model. Moreover, concerning equipment level, everything is already there !
- A simply fashion phenomena
In recent years, camper van sales have increased in amazing ways. Today, the camper van is fashionable and represents approximately 20% market especially as it suits to any audience.
However, there are also disadvantages !
- A small space
With less living space than in a motorhome, we sometimes feel a little tight in the camper van.
- Less comfort
According to some people, it is less comfortable than a motorhome but still cozy in its own way !
- And the cold is coming !
Useless to say that the van is much less important than the one of a motorhome… Then be careful to a little harsh winter…
- Not a perfect design…
A very strong resemblance to a delivery van, do not forget that the aesthetics of the van is not fitted to the top either.
