A nice compact bus camper for two people with all amenities (shower, toilet, parking heater, solar panel, etc.) and therefore completely independent. Currently with a limited access to toilet blocks an advantage.
Apart from that, you can cancel free of charge up to a week in advance due to corona measures.
Drives like a passenger car.
Our Citroen Jumper from 2009 is a wonderfully compact camper with a length of only 5 meters. Nicely manoeuvrable and because of this length an ordinary parking space can be used.
We bought this bus last year and last year we converted it ourselves into a fully equipped camper.
The beauty of this bus camper is, among other things, its driving behavior, which is comparable to a (good) passenger car. If desired, it pulls up smoothly, has no / little difficulty with slopes and, because of the high seat, gives a good (out) view.
The chairs are of course rotatable and selected for the seating comfort. In combination with the good (sound) insulation, the cruise control and the air conditioning, you will arrive at your final destination, even after hours of driving!
As a bonus, the camper has a reversing camera. Easy for parking, for example.
Closet space and refrigerator
Also in terms of decor, the bus is complete and excellently equipped for 2 people.
Closet space for clothes, etc. is located above the bed, above and below the refrigerator and above the cabin. You can store other items under the side seat and of course in the “garage”.
In short, sufficient storage space.
Because we love to read, fixed and rotatable spotlights are mounted in the seating area as well as in the sleeping area, so that you have (reading) lighting in any position.
For the atmosphere, the bus is also equipped with dimmable LED lighting, both inside and outside, and can be operated separately with one button.
The bed is 195 cm long and 135 cm wide. Not super big, but more than enough for 2 people. However, it is not recommended for people taller than 1.90 m.
Getting in and out of bed is via the hatch that can serve as a step in combination with the porta potti.
Solar panel and parking heater
Furthermore, the camper is equipped with a 150 Watt solar panel, a household battery, an 80-liter clean drinking water tank and a diesel-operated parking heater so that you can also stay in the “bush” for longer periods and are independent of electricity and other luxury facilities.
The parking heater has a power of 2 kW, more than enough for a pleasant winter sports holiday.
In addition to heat, the parking heater also has a ventilation setting just to make the hot days more pleasant.
Toilet and shower.
The camper is equipped with a simple porta potti. Normally we made more use of the toilet facilities of the campsite, but now ideal in this “Corona period”.
The same applies to the shower facility: it can be attached to one of the rear doors. A tarp between the doors provides the necessary privacy. Great in all weather conditions, only not in rain!
The kitchen is equipped with a 3-burner gas stove, a sink with running water, four lockable drawers and a cupboard for various attributes. Cutlery, plates, pans and other accessories are part of the standard inventory.
As said, this camper can also handle the city perfectly because of its length. However, it is too high for a parking garage. That is why, if we want to be in the city a bit longer, we always take the bicycle. With the camper we drive to the city outskirts, grab the bikes from the carrier and are even more flexible than walking. Plus you can bring more!
In addition to the kitchen attributes, 2 camping chairs and a height-adjustable table also belong to the inventory. In consultation it is always possible to bring other camping gear. Think, for example, of mattresses, panniers or, for example, jeu de boules.
Well, almost too much to mention and then I don't even have the roof hatches with an inward or outward-facing fan, the insulating darkening, the extra storage space under the folding space, etc.
In short, a fully equipped camper for a wonderful holiday.
