Mid-size and compact vans are known as “CAMPERS", which properly equipped, are able to integrate the necessary elements to operate as a small house with all necessary amenities: chairs, tables, cabinets, beds, refrigerator, cook, sink, shower, storage, electricity, etc ....
A camper is a flexible and versatile means of transport that allows us to enjoy our holiday and leisure time without schedules or obligations, giving us the opportunity to appreciate nature and travel sites without prior bookings or limitations, sleeping overnight in special places and sharing extraordinary moments with our family and friends. Users of these vehicles are adventurous and lively; they appreciate nature and constantly find pleasure in being friendly and respectful with their neighbors and the environment.
The underlying philosophy in this manner of considering leisure time is understanding the relationship with space and time as a sphere of absolute freedom: sleeping surrounded by snow-covered mountain tops, waking up with the sound of birds or the sea, eating economically lost in thought overlooking a lake or in the hustle of an urban park under the shadow of a cathedral, without depending on high seasons or specific availability, timetables, or too many rules, aside from traffic regulations and friendliness.
Travelling in a camper is a versatile pleasure and is ideal to practice sports and activities in nature such as cycling, diving, caving, skiing, motorcycling, surfing and all kinds of sports that require overnight stays at remote sites.
Those of us who travel this way, which by the way is perhaps the closest to the noblest meaning of the word, are increasingly committed to respecting the environment: we deposit our waste in appropriate containers and we pour our gray water where they can be treated. We believe there is a way of discovering new places in a manner which has less invasive on the environment; we integrate in communities as one of their members, using environmentally friendly mobility options such as walking or cycling.
Go ahead and start enjoying the camper philosophy!
