Hyundai i800 owner Cameron McNeish uses his campervan for both work and leisure, although the margins between the two tend to become pretty blurred.
“Essentially I climb mountains for a living, and the Hyundai gives me a fantastic mobile base to work from. I climb hills and mountains and write about it for newspapers and magazines. I’m in my 40th year as a professional outdoor writer and throughout that time a series of campervans have carried me to some of the most fantastic locations imaginable”.
More recently Cameron has made television programmes for BBC Scotland that have featured his Hyundai i800.
I travelled between Oban and Ullapool last year and made two hour-long programmes called Roads Less Travelled in which I took some of the quieter byways and climbed some hills, did some mountain biking and made use of my packraft to visit the Arising Skerries and a holy island on Loch Maree in Wester Ross. Viewers seemed to like the idea of a campervan journey so we’ll be doing a similar trip this year.
Indeed we’ve already started filming a journey between Dornoch in the North East of Scotland and Orkney. The programmes will be broadcast at Christmas and shows that life in a modern, well-fitted camper van like the Hyundai i800 can be pretty comfortable.
