Hi malc & welcome to the forum.

I can't find any "Advantage" relating to Motorhome Dealers.

Do you mean - Vantage Motorhomes who manufacture PVC's at Leeds.

I have no personal experience of their products, but some reviews here:-

Most PVC companies are relatively small scale operations and are OK with visitors. I'd personally be interested in visiting workshops and looking at the care and attention being paid to 'vans being converted. Some 'vans are alright, some are pants. If they are funny about you looking at their production runs, be wary.

 

Incidentally, 7 weeks wildcamping in the UK? That's commonly held to be impossible / illegal / immoral / inconsiderate. Are you of sufficient constitution to cope with the incredulity and / or wrath of the unthinking? *-)

Off Topic: but just like the General we have been 'Wild Camping' all over the UK mainland & Outer Hebrides for the past fifteen years. Quite often for six weeks or more at a time. We were over on Arran this April when they had all the heavy snow falls. We were 'grounded' for three days eventually being dug out by two locals & a JCB digger. We were fine, comfortable & warm with food & drinks to last for ages. We were even making hot drinks & offering our warm facilities for the guy who helped to 'dig us out'. He & his neighbour were true stars. The wife offered to cook meals for any locals that had no facilities. We remeber that holiday with much fondness, a wonderful time were people pulled together for the good of the community.

 

Back to 'Wild Camping' our firm favourite has got to be the far North West coast of Scotland, followed closely by the rest of Scotland & their Islands, Northumberland, Teesdale, County Durham, Yorkshire Moors, Cumbria,, Derbyshire Dark Peaks & Dales, Pembrookshire, Norfolk,Suffolk, Kent & Sussex. We have wild camped (& I DON'T DO 'Laybyes' & car parks), in all these counties & many more without any problems. Spending my 'brass' locally & getting to know the local people; enjoying some stunning scenery & enjoying the nature around us. I find this much more interesting than being on a camp site. Everyone to their own opinion; I'm not suggesting our way is any better or worse than other Motorhomers - it just suits our life style. :-D
