I recently bought a “6 person living space” tent-like thing from Tesco which was on clearance at just £15. This is the video of me putting it up and testing it for the first time, to use as a cheap awning substitute.
Once again the campervan was pressed into service for my filming on Cruising The Cut, resulting in two car park stays, one in North Wales – where I introduced some Very Important Guests to the joys of narrowboating – and one in Milton Keynes. Plus I went to have my new lithium / inverter etc electrical system checked over by the professionals at Bluefix who are qualified and authorised Victron installers.
This is a very quick and silly little vlog in which nothing happens but it documents my recent trip to Ferryside near Carmarthen in south Wales, where I was doing some filming for my Cruising the Cut channel.
I went down to Henley-on-Thames for the annual Thames Traditional Boat Festival (that video is over on my Cruising the Cut channel) and stayed in the campervan so I made this vlog of the trip from the van perspective. The Festival includes a decent display of classic cars too, so that’s what I’ve focused on here.
Early June saw the early summer appearance of the International Campervan / Adventure Overland Show at Stratford racecourse. I was there in the YouTuber section, along with loads of others. There was cake and tea and lithium batteries galore.
