Why I believe a VW California Campervan Hire is worth every penny for creating a great holiday.........

Camping with Kids

Camping with Kids

Whether carefully packing a backpack or going camping with literally the kitchen sink, sofa and TV (believe me I have seen this in Australia!), a camping trip involves a lot of preparation and equipment.  I always feel the hard work is worth it as I love enjoying a well deserved meal and drink after a physical day hiking or biking, or relaxing as I watch kids of all ages making friends and playing hide-and-seek in the trees and bushes.

A VW California campervan has made camping much simpler. We keep the onboard kitchen equiped, camping gear in the the boot, so all we need to do is fill the fridge, pack our clothes, pop our bikes on the rack and in 90 minutes we can be in the New Forest, counting the ponies and cows!  When LokoCampers began I had three active kids under 4 years old and staying in hotels and B&Bs was not that relaxing. The VW California campervans made holidays a fun adventure again.

I have been lucky enough to have taken a few sabbaticals from a number-crunching London job to indulge my passion for camping and the 'great outdoors'.  I've gained camping and hiking experience from climbing Mount Roraima (Venezuela) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), mountain biking and camping in Whistler and the Alps, camping and travelling in a converted army truck in East Africa, treetop living in Indonesia and sleeping in swag bags under the stars in Australia.

Camping & Biking

Camping & Biking

However amazing the landscape in the rest of the world I feel a fresh appreciation for the British Isles.  Maybe it is a turning of age or becoming a mother-of-three and wanting to give my children the same fond memories I have of travelling  and camping closer to home.  Buying a modern, deluxe campervan seemed to tick all the boxes to combine my interests with my husbands obsession for road and mountain biking and cars.  Now we can get away for weekend even after a hectic working week without having to spend hours packing.

My husband's hours of research into purchasing the right campervan with the best features have definitely paid off.  I was totally impressed with how easy the driving was. All the LokoCampers VW Californias are automatic and so compact that it is just like driving a large car.  I feel comfortable driving it in town and along country roads.  At first I thought the central heating was a bit unnecessary and taking the 'pleasure' out of camping, but I have been raving about it to my friends ever since and love that I can get away for Christmas City breaks and ski trips in comfort.  The heating works without electrical hookup, has temperature and timing controls and doesn't run down the battery or use hardly any fuel. It also means I don't need to worry about the kids getting too cold and waking up!

Whatever type of trip you take, I believe the campervan offers everything you need to make your own experience a memorable one!
