Below is a link to one of the 'camping areas' I will be staying in next year while in Italy. This won't fit in a van or on a bike but...

Only 3.5/5 from TripAdvisor. Oh dear. Another one seduced by the marketing photos of how the hotel used to look 15 years ago..  :)

You've not grasped the basic concept of Vanping, Martin. It needs a Van  :grin:

I still laugh when I think about the time recently when I traveled 140 miles on a 250cc bike carrying all the camping gear, clothes, food, cooking gear and a chair with a back and arms.

Yet Jacko came in the estate car with a bike on a trailer and I had to cook and make him coffee in a stolen pint glass as he had feck all with him.  :neen:


So far we've had no evidence that Fat Rat is going to/has ever done any vanping. The van in all set up but is he MAN enough to sleep in it?
OR
Is he sleeping in it when working away and pocketing the supplied 5 star hotel money to finance his bike buying addiction.  :shrug:

most hotels and b&b look like vans only they do not have wheels  oh and they are warm and dry and come with breakfast all cooked for you when you get up
