      I think the caravan would be more comfortable.

      Tim you've probably decided by now, but another option might be what they call a "fifth wheel" here.
      Then at least you could park it and use the pick-up truck. Like this:

      Hi FR -Nice to see you back - Enjoying the summer up north? - I haven't quite made up my mind - still scouring the ads every nights - I di bounce around the ideas of campervane and also fifth wheelers - theyare hugs =e and really home from home - I just feel err how should I put this for older retired types!

      A caravan would be good but small baby stepsand the first one upwould be a camper trailer me thinks - they are popular here downunder. Perhaps i just don't want to get too comfortable!
      PS Icouldn't seethepiccie.

      Cal will become famous soon enough
      umm tough choice but having had a motorhome, then a caravan back in blighty and being much to lazy to set a trailer tent up all the time ,for me it would have to be another motorhome.No brainer!

      Thanks!
      I'm spending the summer here in the deep South.....hot, humid Florida.
      Thank God for air conditioning!
      However, I went to England and Ireland for a month April/May, and had super weather. I took a rain jacket, sweater, gloves, and didn't need them!
      The blossoms and spring flowers were out in force.
      I stayed with family in Surrey,Yorkshire, Birmingham and Tipperary.
      Did lots of horse-riding in Ireland.....restored my soul.
      Almost bought a motor-home from a cousin there....thinking of retirement.

      Just like the missus - if it ain't got a toilet she's not interested. LOL Motorhomes == too big and clunky - I had a Toyota Hiace for travelling around australia - the only problem was that whenever you has to go anywhere everything had to go with you.

      Yes - if you need the comforts of convenience - but isn't that exactly why you go camping - for the change? Wellies'n all in Scotland.
