Whats the story with the caravan? Come closer, I will tell all.
When we go to Cornwall to look at houses, we will have to stay over night in case we want a second look at anything. It will be quite hard to find a hotel or B&B that will take a dog and a puppy at short notice.
We had to think about how we could do this.
BINGO - Caravan it is.
We have been monitoring e bay for a while and saw exactly what we wanted. A quick dash down the motorway and it is now ours. It is in really good nick, but needs a new carpet. It has already been put to use as a temporary office on the drive. I bet the neighbours are loving that we have a caravan in full view of the road. No doubt someone will say we are bringing down the tone! lol
Once we have new carpet. We, thats the royal WE, will build into the seat bases, compartments for storage. Then things wont fall onto the battery. I have to go through all of the camping equipment and see what we need and what we have already.
The caravan will be stored at a camp site in Cornwall, we call them before we leave, they will tow the caravan out of the storage barns and onto a pitch. we will hurtle down the M5, just turn up and carry on as if it had been there forever. Then when you leave they put it back. It saves us petrol and us having to tow. Win Win I say.
Then when we have found a house down there, we can either leave it there to store, or take it to the new house. If the new house is small it could be used over night in our garden as an extra room or it could be used as an office. Using it has an office has worked out really well this week. The builders havent finished the kitchen yet. They are already a week over and eating microwave meals is making me ill. Not many veggie microwave meals in the supermarket to be honest. We will get a gas bottle for the caravan at the weekend and then at least I can cook over the weekend and next week.
Its all worked out really well, for once things have happened in our favour.
Now we need to get bits to fit it out with, that we may not have in our camping equipment.
What bits and pieces do you think we need for the caravan to make it comfortable? What items do you have to take camping with you? At present I am drawing a blank...
