Campers and Camper Vans Buy/Rent


#1

Hi, I have seen none and was wondering could someone point me in the right direction for buying a campervan or Winnebago ? Thank you

I’ve seen some, but they are pretty rare.

THINK I saw two or three parked up by Anping harbour here in Tainan last week, though I was in a moving car and didn’t get a very good look. Looked to be Delica truck-size, with custom (probably fibreglass) bodywork, including an over-cab. Might have been that Hyundai truck you see here with the extended cab.

Gf said it was a camper-van sales promotion. If they are still around next time I’m there (probably unlikely) I’ll try and find out more.

It occurs to me that this might be a way around the “Trucks are for Taiwanese +/or Tradesmen” rule,though you’d have to buy a purpose-built one.

I’d have thought something the size of a Winnebago (at least the ones I’ve seen) would be a pretty hideous driving experience here, though.

There is a trailer manufacturer in Linkou…About 20feet, air conditioned, with head but not sure about sewage. They are pretty homely, but an option at 750k last time I was quoted on one. Standard tongue with full lighting and brake assist.

Thanks guys, I agree a Winnebago would be a mare to drive, but that is all I have seen here.

Saw this model “Volkswagen California” in Taiwan the other day on the highway. Are they available to purchase in Taiwan or was it specially imported?

it is the site to go to for camping in Taiwan. Can reserve camp sites, get food sent to the site to cook, etc.

That’s ridiculous, 64-100k?

That’s Taiwan. Vehicles are really expensive here.
