Not all campervans are mass-produced in factories. Some fans choose to build their own from scratch or spend hours transforming old ambulances and ex-removal lorries into unique customized campers.
Mobile camping has been popular for over 60 years, with Welsh Coast Campervans always a good option, but alternative vans have only emerged in more recent decades.
The Beginnings of Camp Quirky
Established motorhome shows didn’t deal with offbeat self-styled campers, so Camp Quirky was created to provide a space for anyone involved with unusual alternative campervans to get together. The organizers, keen van converters and now a rental agency too, had modest expectations – assuming a handful of vans and their devoted owners would enjoy a rare opportunity to share ideas, funny stories and future plans.
Camp Quirky Now
The limited number of tickets available sell out within days, snapped up mainly by self-builders, lifestyle bloggers, campervan conversion business people and fans keen to enjoy an entire weekend of customized campervan indulgence. People can bring their own vans, and despite its sudden growth the warm welcome to all lives on just as strongly.
What to Expect from 2018 Camp Quirky
A warm welcome and the chance to look around dozens of rentable unusual campers will be guaranteed. There will also be lots of practical workshops and talks designed to help self-builders and converters get the most out of the experience and stalls selling a good range of items which will personalize a camper beautifully. Both newbies looking for tips on trip planning and old hands keen to know more about solar panelling can find something relevant and useful.
Leisure activities for both children and adults, music, delicious food and a cash bar are also on hand for guests to enjoy.
The next event will be 20-22 April 2018 at a farm in Newark, Nottinghamshire. Tickets cost from £10 for children to £45-55 for adults. A water supply and basic toilet facilities are available, but there are no shower facilities on site – unless you happen to have a bathroom on board. Most vans are available to rent and can be pitched as regular campervans can on welshcoastcampervans sites.
Sending time with others who share your passion is important, so grab this amazing opportunity.
