I have just joined the forum as I have been looking at various options for being able to take cheap(er) holidays over the next few years and having ruled out tents and campervans, I started looking at folding campers. The Dandy appeals over and above the others, due to being able to pack away when wet and not worry about it
I want some advice really about what I should look for. It will just be me and my son usually (he's 2), but I would like to be able to accommodate a friend (and their child(ren)) or my parents occasionally. From what I've seen so far most seem to be 4+ berth anyway?
I feel the cold, so want to be as warm as possible - what options should I look out for to help with that? Are there any options that would come within my budget?!
Also, do you always have to be on a campsite - I presume you can't just pitch up in a layby? Thinking here of toilet options too, although having gone camping at 6 months pregnant and used a travel john, I am not that bothered Sorry, too much information eh? Just don't want you to think I am at all too delicate!
Last question - are they all easy enough for me to put up on my own do you think? I'm imagining the worst weather and wondering how long it actually takes. Watched a youtube video and it took about 6 mins to put up, but there were two of them?
Budget is around £1500 (could go higher) and I am in Hampshire - in case you hear of any being sold in this area. Most I have seen are quite a long way away from me.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to being part of the forum.
