Been done to death but I am seeking a bit of advice guys an gals.
So i'm looking to buy a van that I can;
Spend a few days at a time in rather than living in or travelling in for long periods. I want to be able to drive and base myself in a spot away from home for a few days so I can go walking without time constraints
Stick a window in one side door but otherwise remain fairly stealthy as I won't be on campsites
Insulate reasonably well, my main consideration is to remain condensation free as i'm happy to wear layers and a woolly hat to bed
Ideally a fairly small base vehicle as i'll be driving a fair bit but long enough for a 6ft guy to sleep in and store some kit
Cooker can just be a camping stove and a washing up bowl for a sink I assumed, i'll probably skip a leisure battery and sockets at the beginning as I struggle with wiring
Budget is around 4k - 5k plus the fit out. Obviously the less the better but it will need to be reliable as a main priority
I've considered Berlingos/Kangoos but they're a tad short. Haven't tried a Citroen Dispatch yet but I generally like PSA HDi engined stuff.
