4 Reasons Why You Should Buy A Campervan in 2020

4 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Campervan in 2020

Campervans are enjoying a rise in popularity of late. Why? Perhaps it’s because we are becoming more conscious of the impact travelling abroad has on the environment. Or maybe the nomad lifestyle appeals more to those among us that are striving to achieve a better work-life balance? Whatever the reason, van life is increasingly enticing individuals, couples and families alike.

Here at Denby, we love campervans and the van lifestyle for many reasons. The main being that jumping in a campervan and hitting the road opens up a whole world of possibilities beyond that of a simple package holiday. If you’re considering giving the van lifestyle a go this year, we’ve compiled our top 4 reasons why you should buy a campervan in 2020 to give you that final nudge.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go

If you often find yourself with itchy feet and chomping at the bit to explore new places, a campervan gives you the freedom to do just that. With a van, you don’t have to worry about spending a gazillion pounds on upgrading your luggage allowance in order to pack more than a pair of flip flops and a towel. You’re ready and raring to go at the drop of a hat.

Oh, The Places You'll Go

Fancy a trip to the Lake District at the weekend? How about climbing Snowdon? Hop in the van and off you go. No in-depth planning, no overspending on flights, transport and hotel rooms. Just the freedom to do whatever you please, whenever you please.

Travel In Style

With a campervan conversion the world really is your oyster when it comes to mod cons, upholstery and decor. Not many of us can say we get the opportunity to travel First or Business Class when we fly, but in a campervan you will travel in style all day, every day if you like.

For example, our iconic Balmoral conversion comes complete with all the luxuries you could need (and a few optional extras, too), including a Rock & Roll bed, side kitchen units and wardrobe, gas hob and sink, and fridge/freezer. The Balmoral conversion also comes kitted out with USB power points, so you can charge your phone or tablet on the go and enjoy in-flight entertainment at your fingertips!

Keeping It In The Family

Taking off for the weekend usually involves cramming the kids and the dogs into the car, along with the tent and all your home comforts. We’ve all been there, and it’s no fun! With a campervan, heading off on family escapes is easier and more spacious. What’s more, you don’t have to wrestle with the tent when you get to your destination. Just pitch up, sit back, and enjoy a brew before heading off to explore the local area!

Switch Off From The Everyday

Family Campervan Holidays

Life is more hectic than ever right now. Many of us work long, unforgiving hours. And technology means we never really get to switch up. One of the best things about living the van life is being able to up sticks, switch off your phone, and get some much-needed rest and relaxation. Recent studies have shown the spending time outdoors is hugely positive for our mental health. With a campervan, you’re never far from a bit of fresh air, a long walk, and a pub lunch to round it all off if you really want to treat yourself.

Volkswagen T6.1 Transporter Campervan Conversions

New Volkswagen T6.1 Transporter Campervan Conversions From Denby

The new Volkswagen T6.1 Transporter has arrived. An improved version of the T6 (if the .1 of the name isn’t a giveaway), it’s clear at first glance that this panel van has had a facelift. Boasting a new front grille and bumper, the headlights have also undergone improvement as they now merge with the crossbar across the grille.

Beyond the exterior, there are other changes to be found within the new T6.1. The vehicle now features electromechanical steering, similar to that used in the Volkswagen Crafter. The benefits of this are that extra features, such as lane-keeping assistance and crosswind assistance can now be added for a smoother, safer ride.

As for everything else, well you most likely know it all by now. Just like its predecessor, the T6.1 is available in short and long-wheelbase models, with standard, medium and high roof heights to choose from. While electric e-Transporter and Sportline versions are in the pipeline, those keen to get their hands on the new model have two trim levels to choose from at present: Startline and Highline.

First Look At The Interior

So, now you’ve got the lowdown on the exterior – what about the interior? Well, it doesn’t disappoint. Finished in ultra-modern style, you’ll find all the latest technological features you’d expect from a modern vehicle. Front and centre of the interior is the 8inch touchscreen infotainment system kitted out with a voice control system optimised to respond to natural speech. Upgrade options also include inductive charging for your smartphone and the ability to connect to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
