Along with that, there are also several challenge points that must be realized correctly as a consequence of the benefits obtained.

1. Advantages of Campervan Cars

  • Provides flexibility to visit various destinations. Because it is not limited by rail or airports, adventuring with a campervan allows you to explore areas freely. You only need a piece of land to park your van, and set up for the holidays
  • Easy to park. When you go on a campervan adventure you are not dependent on lodging or on camping areas. This 'residence' can be parked anywhere as long as it does not violate applicable laws, and is considered safe enough to rest
  • Packing matters  become more convenient. Instead of having to repeatedly open things and put them in again, you practically have a giant storage area that moves for all your needs
  • It is more economical in certain contexts. Apart from the cost of renting or making it, traveling using a campervan is also considered more economical. The cost of staying can be saved quite a lot, and you can also cook food and drinks yourself
  • Offers a different adventure experience. You can easily visit beautiful points that may only be reached by hikers . Of course, the scenery offered is much more beautiful than visiting ordinary tourist areas

2. Challenges You Must Face

Apart from all the benefits offered when traveling using  a campervan, you also have to be aware that this does not always provide convenience. There are several challenges that you have to face over all the advantages above.

  • The bathing business will be a little tricky. Because basically you don't have an unlimited source of water, then you must be wise to use water, including for bathing and toilet purposes
  • Large size campervan . With all the space offered, the size of the campervan can be quite large. On narrow roads, driving and adventuring will be a challenge
  • Obviously limited privacy. Well with the space available, the privacy of each member of the group can be very limited. Not to mention if you travel with  another campervan group
  • The security side of belongings and campervan cars. Obviously no one wants to experience anything bad when going on adventures and vacations. But it must also be realized that not entirely the campervan you  bring offers protection like when you stay in a hotel room. Always be aware of the risk of theft and break-ins and increase protection with double lock
