There are so many advantages to owning a campervan and having a vehicle you can use for both travel and accommodation is really useful. However, owning a campervan comes with a cost and we’re not just talking about the initial outlay of purchasing the camper. Campervan maintenance and insurance can be incredibly expensive too and that’s not even beginning to consider the cost of storage.
Here at 365 Campers, we’ve come up with the ideal solution for people who would like to have access to a camper throughout the year; campervan shared ownership. This is a brilliant opportunity for you to reap all of the benefits of campervan ownership with significantly reduced costs and you can enjoy lots of staycations here in the UK when you buy a stakeholding in a converted VW campervan.
Why Choose to Co-own a Campervan?
There are multiple reasons why you might want to share campervan ownership with a group of other people and some of the biggest benefits of co-owning a camper include;
As we mentioned earlier, the financial responsibilities that you face when you purchase a campervan can be quite heavy. Even an entry-level campervan will likely set you back a great deal upfront. However, if you choose shared ownership, you will only need to save around £10,000 – £12,000 to be able to buy a stakeholding.
Not only will it cost you less upfront when you invest in shared campervan ownership, but all costs relating to maintenance and running will be covered by us at 365 Campers too. So, you won’t have to worry about paying for things such as MOT and road tax or habitation checks and insurance during your time of ownership.
When you buy a stakeholding in a campervan, you can use it for up to five weeks every year. You can enjoy both full week holidays and weekend getaways throughout the year, and it is really easy to book your preferred holiday dates. Whilst holidays are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, you can always swap holidays with other syndicate members if necessary.
As a co-owner of a camper, you won’t have to worry about the damage that can be caused to a campervan if it isn’t used for prolonged periods of time. When you’re not using the camper, someone else will be and it will also be kept running smoothly by the 365 Campers team. Breakdowns and timely repairs aren’t something you will have the hassle of dealing with.
Sharing a campervan with other people isn’t just a great choice for you, but it’s also an excellent choice for the environment. You will be helping to reduce the number of vehicles on the road, easing congestion and the environmental impact of your holidays. Not only this, but you will help reduce the number of vans that are converted and eventually scrapped too, which can have a serious impact on the environment.
It’s worth noting that after three years of shared ownership, 365 Campers will sell the camper for you and share the proceeds of the sale between the stakeholders according to their ownership percentage. If you’d like to, you can then reinvest this money into a new campervan shared ownership and continue to enjoy staycations in the UK.
