What is the longest amount of time you have stayed in your van?
The most continuous nights you have slept in it?
Why, where, would you do it again?

Iam not planning on a long haul, just interested in peoples experiences... Unless the missus is planning on booting me out soon!

Not in our van, but we did 13 weeks in NZ in a Nissan Small (converted mini mini bus). Did have 1 night in a Hotel (as a treat after 7 weeks) and 2 nights at a friends. Luckily the weather was good all the time, very cold at times but so little rain. :)

I regularly spend upward of a month in my T4 around Europe surfing. I split from my Ex and left the house broke with 2 surfboard, van and....... well that was it. I Spent 2 months driving around cornwall and Devon, using public toilets and beach side showers, absolutely loved it and ended up living in a house at the last place I stayed:) The van still eyes the house up jealously!! lol would do it again at the drop of a hat. The sense of freedom was unbelievable:ILU:
