Topic - Buying a van/camper

henwardian - on 03 Jan 2013
Hi. I'm planning to buy a van/camper in a few months time with the intent to make a climbing tour around Europe and perhaps a little further too.
Ideally I'd like to get something for about 3500 maximum but I'm unsure whether to buy a 2nd hand van and do a conversion myself or buy a camper straight off. Was wondering what other people out there thought and what their experiences were?

More details:
If I buy a van, maximum would need to be a bit under 3000 so I could buy conversion materials.
I'm not a DIY wizard but I know basically what I am doing and have access to lots of tools.
I am looking for a vehicle that will last fairly well, run reliably and get a good milage.
Bed should fold out to give space for 2 people.
Lastly, I am very tall so the bed really needs to be 220cm minimum.
