these days depending on your health possibly a 3.5ton camper is the way.
70yrs and medicals etc can spoil it for others .
fifth wheelers are becoming popular as a 3,500kg pickup pulling a fifth wheeler is ok under grandfather rights .
think you will have to spend lots time going through the form and others .
are you keeping a house or just going traveling
cheers alan. .

Car and caravan is an option BUT in Europe they are generally not allowed to use the aire system---not to
be confused with motorway Aires!!!!!! Which are now considered to be a serious security risk for overnight stops!!

....... Stay away from parking spots on payages also. Good friends of ours were confronted by 4 masked men one night they managed to drive away but were low on fuel which was why they had stopped.

Size matters. Or at least that's what we are finding out
...need more space.
Especially for cooking when you have to do it inside....darn rain

A lot depends on your licence - if you have C1 on it and you have at least a few years till you’re 70 you are laughing.

Many people it seems don’t get the ideal van for them first time, there are so many vans to choose from.

When you say not sure what you need, what do you actually mean ? Is it by way of vehicle requirements or what you will need to have as far as equipment ?

The type of vehicle will vary depending on where you actually intend to travel and what type of terrain.

The type of equipment will also vary depending on the above as well, there is the 'standard' everyday stuff and their may be additional stuff dependent on your travelling itinerary and lifestyle.
