One thing you do have to take into account if you didn't spend 50 nights at the van you wouldn't stay in watching television all the time, you would be out spending your hard earned wonga doing other exciting things so that should probably come off your cost per night.

Jeep Patriot, it has a 2.2 160bhp merc engine, to be fair it's probably 40+mpg on a run, average is 35mpg round the doors, if I slowed down a bit I could do a lot better. With 3 spaniels I need a big car, could probably do better with an estate but I do like the 4x4

I like this thread, its good for potential newbies to take into account the true cost of our caravans. Well done that person who said you can't put a price on the non-tangible benefits of ownig a caravan-sheer bliss. 119 sleeps until our site re-opens. LOL!

Now there is a notion to get the grey cells panicking, lol.

But for this year, i never kept a track of the nights/days. For next year's season, i will, then track the cost per night. Let you know next year, if this topic comes up again.
