Meet Brian & Aprille
Brian and Aprille bought their first red NV200 CamperCar from Sussex Campervans with a diesel engine and manual gearbox in 2017, and it was love at first sight.
It even inspired Aprille to write a poem - Mobile Holidays, a sort of Ode to a Campervan - which makes it clear how much fun the couple have had in their Nissan NV200 CamperCar - their first campervan from Sussex Campervans. Since then they’ve sent us postcards from their travels all around Britain.
It has to be admitted that they all look much the same
Set out like a pack of cards all ready for a game.
Oblong metal boxes with windows and sliding doors
Fitted out with furniture and carpets on the floors.
Silently enduring winter’s snow, sleet and rain
Waiting for good weather so they can spring to life again.
Then they’re packed and filled and you might even see them grin
For the time has come at last to go and the holiday can begin.
The doors are all flung open and the windows open wide
As we’re going on holiday and packing and busy inside.
Everyone is excited, there’s chatting and laughter about.
“Don’t forget the “Portaloo we must get it out.”
Our ‘home’ is filled with practical things ready for a week.
We’re off again on our travels as adventure is what we seek.
Maps and camera, a microwave to make mealtimes more easy.
Insect repellent, electric blanket and tablets in case I’m queasy!
Bags of food, a picnic lunch to have along the way.
‘Glamping’ is the buzzword, we’re looking forward to our stay.
Almost ready to make a start, we’ll leave early if we can.
Glowing with pride we’ll enjoy the ride in our small red campervan.
Aprille and Brian had so much fun in their first NV200 CamperCar from Sussex Campervans that they’ve now bought another one. This time they chose a petrol-auto Nissan NV200 campervan, built to order for them - and named this white compact camper the "Bambino". Pop back soon to read more.
