About John & Samantha
Welcome to Vintage RV Adventures, run by John and Samantha from Tamworth, Staffordshire in the UK. In July 2021, we purchased a salvage American Ford Econoline 5.7 litre V8 RV motorhome, which we lovingly restored over the course of 2021 and early 2022. We have affectionately named our motorhome Indiana, after the state where it was born in the USA.
You can see our other garage projects HERE
Of course, our travels around the UK would not be the same without our faithful companion Shelby the German Shepherd dog.
Please call over and take a look at some of our favourite vanlife Youtubers HERE

Also, we will share our experiences of meeting other like-minded RV life people including YouTubers.

We had an amazing 3 night stay at Passage Farm campsite which is located in the village of Arlingham in Gloucestershire. The one acre campsite, based on a working farm, is located on the picturesque horseshoe bend of the River Severn.
