After 3 years of faithful service I decided it was time to change my van. Fully fitted out for fishing it had a bed and all mod cons [except running water]. The van is the Peugeot Expert 1.6d H1 registered Aug 06 with 96000 miles on the clock and it is now up for sale at about £3000 with no VAT.
The new van is again the Peugeot Expert but now the 09 plate 2.0 Hdi H1 with appropriate mileage to suit. I’m well please with the vehicle having driven it down from Liverpool where it had been for sale. After a couple of days I have now completed the transfer of bed and other items that will suit the fishing needs and I’m ready for anywhere in the country again.
For the serious travelling river fisherman this seems the perfect answer to the fuel cost that can make distant venues so expensive for a single daytrip. I can fish to whatever time I want at night and retire to the van where I sleep as comfortable as at home on 4 inches of high density foam made for the job. [Brollycamps do not belong on the river bank]. Rain or shine there is room to move about and cook or prepare food before setting out again the next morning at a time to suit you not that required by the boarding house or lodgings.
