Hi, I’m Emma I currently live in Norfolk in the UK with my husband. We both currently work from home and are looking to give van life a go. Neither of us have any experience with camper vans (or cars for that matter tbh, we can both drive but the inner workings are a mystery) but we like giving things a go and learning new skills. And we are already fairly minimalist so a small space shouldn’t be an issue for us.
The main things I’ve been wondering are:
- Do you lovely peeps have any recommendations on where to look for a van? I’ve used auto trader and stuff in the past, but never with much luck.
- Are there any specific vans you would recommend for the UK? (Cheap, easy to get hold of, easy to find parts for etc.)
- And finally, Are there any UK specific vehicle regulations or insurances that I should be aware of or look into? (I know you aren’t allowed to sleep in your vehicle just anywhere, regardless of the type of vehicle it is but we’ll see about that )
Thanks in advance!
