Life is short, health is precious! Live it to the fullest everyday!
The development of the Abba Camper has been a very personal journey. I have been camping all my life and was lucky enough to get a wife who enjoyed it as much. We have covered all possible forms of camping from old army tents to caravans. As our family grew our camping needs changed and eventually I built my own trailer. The kids have since grown up and have their own families now so once again my wife and I found ourselves in new terrain. With just the two of us new travelling opportunities became possible and we found we needed a lot less. We went to Tanzania with an off road caravan almost got divorced, made it back and decided our days of caravan’s were over forever.
We tried a trailer again. But a trailer still kept us from going where we wanted to go most. There where roads unexplored, bucket list items calling, places to see that we were dreaming about, and a deep understanding never ever to under estimate the African bush.
Besides our empty nest or shall I say empty tent syndrome, my health had taken a beating and I needed something less strenuous to set up. As most of you will agree the test of good marriage is one which can survive setting up a camp site. No more roof top tents, no more towing, no more raw aluminium, no more hammering. We were ready for our next adventure and so Abba Campers was born.
