My wife, daughter and I like to camp on the beach on some weekends. It's close enough to where we live that we can go late on a Saturday, have dinner while we watch the sunset, then spend the night. In the morning, after coffee we go for a long walk on the beach, clean up and head home.
It's another example of how a camper van can go where RVs have trouble. With the thick sand, we don't tend to see RVs in the area, but we DO see a lot of tents and an occasional fellow van lifer.
Frequently, we have the whole beach to ourselves. Ahhhhhhh
