Meet Natalie and Stuart, proud owners of a Compass CV40 campervan (a fabulous ‘Kensington’ special edition, built by us for Kimberley Caravans).

Natalie and Stuart tell us how they got into the whole #vanlife thing… and have never looked back!

“We've always loved roadtrips! In a car at first, sticking to the UK and then venturing over the pond to the US. Our biggest and longest was our West to East Coast tour across the USA.

“In 2019, for the first time, we finally managed to complete a NC500 tour of Scotland and absolutely loved it. We were in a car and staying in hotels, B&Bs etc, but every time we passed a campervan or motorhome we used to get so envious because we wanted to not only drive around these amazing areas but we wanted to be amongst it all, too.

“So, when we came home, we spoke to our friends who have a motorhome and they suggested we visit the NEC in Birmingham for the October 2019 Motorhome and Caravan show, which we did...and we haven't looked back since!

“We love our campervan, it has allowed us the freedom to go where we like (because it's not too big).

“We've met so many friends with the same model van as us and are active members of the CV Owners’ Facebook group). The community is amazing and everyone is so like-minded and friendly.

“We're just looking forward to our next adventure and adding more pins to the map!”

This is where the adventures begin

Ever since our first roadtrip (California) in 2015, we have developed a "bug" for travelling and seeing the spots most tourists never get to see...

This is the life, no views yet but we can't wait to pitch up next to the sea or a beautiful vista and chill.

We were experiencing major van withdrawals this evening so we decided to go for a short drive to see the sunset.

This is Ana. We have wanted a Tuckfields On Tour mascot and we found her yesterday! Well, Stu won her. We have named her Ana after a casino hostess who served us not long after the big win...who doesn't like a flutter every now and again! We are looking forward to taking her on our trips and adventures!

Relaxing lunch stop before coming home. Usually, we would be driving straight home after a weekend away. Now we can find a quiet spot, pull up, make a fresh homemade sandwich and enjoy the view (this is Stu's lunch, he likes larger portions.

Our first time with the awning out. Let’s just say it gave the other campers on the site something to watch for 30 minutes… But now it’s done it’s so good!

We sometimes look at our van parked up and think, wow is that ours! Does anyone do the same?

Stopping off halfway home for lunch at the end of our trip has become quite a regular occurrence. We just can't bear to see the end of our trip so we like to prolong it wherever we possibly can. We are sure we aren't the only ones who do this?

This is what the New Forest is about. The beautiful ponies that roam the heaths and woodland.
