This wee beastie has been with me 6 years now and has given me more luxury and freedom than any 13 year old van should have done. He's joined me visiting family and friends around the UK, been there at the end of many a mountain and long walk, a #BenNevis summer solstice midnight climb providing the best nights sleep ever and made more cups of tea than I dare to count. This is Harvey. Harvey RV if you want his full Sunday name and because of him, I could never go back to a car again... For those contemplating a camper van but feel it may be too big, a medium van of this size is a great start. When I first drove Harvey I thought I would topple over going around corners because I was so high up, I didn't think I would be able to park, I thought I would clip the kerbs, bump other cars in parking spaces but those fears soon became memories (but yes, I do still clip the kerbs now and again, you can see the evidence in the wheel trims!!)
The time has come for Harvey to go to his next owner as I am looking for something with a wee bit more space and although he has 171,000 miles on he clock, there are many, many more adventures to be had...
