Loads of them in Arbroath today. Spring must be just around the corner!  ;D 


I passed a couple of manky old conversion jobs, one lorry, one van, in Stornoway today. None of "tourists" looked like they had seen a bar of soap this millennium.


With the lack of affordable accommodation  you can understand why they are so popular, but they are still a plague.


Last week I saw a pair parked overnight in a flooded lay-by with snow falling. Rather you than me was my thought!

I can't imagine they would be much fun for more than a night or two. Maybe a week maximum if you had one like Nicola Sturgeon's - the £110K Niesmann Bischoff "Independence".

I'll let you know if she ever turns up in Arbroath!  ;D


We had a campervan in NZ for a month, Nth island and Sth. 3,000 miles and a great trip. Shifted on every couple of days.
Campervan in Tasmania too and the same Toyota Hilux base vehicle. Really enjoyed both holidays going where we wanted to go and lots of good campsites.
Spent years wondering about a standard VW here but stick with cottage bases or climbing club meets at big lodges or whole bunkhouse bookings.

As I said above, with the lack of affordable accommodation one can see the attraction of the Grockle Wagon, I often considered one myself in the wild days before I had kids, but even then I was smart enough to realise it would soon become a very expensive and little used novelty.


The strangest thing at the moment are these roof tents. I can't see the point of getting somewhere, climbing on top of the car to set it up and get into it and then can't use the car again until it is time to move on. Much easier to set a tent up beside the car and then you can use the car to get about. I hate to think what it would be like in a high wind.
Don't worry, be happy.
Carried it in full, then carry it out empty.

I'm looking at one of these, prices released next month. Should be good on juice and enable me to do overnighters on the Clyde and Annan. I've done day trips to them before but it's exhausting!


That looks good Sean, very inconspicuous. Let's just say normal Grockle Wagons are not too poplar with locals in the H&I but that would do the job admirably.
