In 2009 we bought a Bilbos Celex campervan. In the intervening years it has taken us to France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Austria, and many corners of the UK. It is a Short Wheelbase VW T5 with a 130 engine. At under 5m long it can be easily driven anywhere – and usually is!
Equally comfortable cruising on a Motorway at 70 plus, or pottering along narrow tracks, it has returned an average of 34mpg from new and provides a comfortable bed at the end of the day.
