A COUPLE who spent the weekend in a camper van with their children have realised it is basically a punishment cell on wheels.
Tom and Susan Logan had anticipated fun outdoor activities, not being trapped in a confined space with the most basic facilities and constant interpersonal tension.
Teacher Tom Logan said: “Due to rain we spent hours playing cards accompanied by the whiff of faeces from the chemical toilet, or as I now call it, ‘slop bucket’.
“It was also like prison because there’s no privacy and you can hear every snore and fart from the people around you. At one point I heard a man crying in the night, which was me.
“In that claustrophobic space arguments easily flare up. Emily hit Josh over the head with her iPad and Susan called me a ‘clumsy bastard’ for getting in her way in the ludicrously cramped ‘kitchen’.
“No one actually got ‘shanked’ with a sharpened toothbrush but if we’d had to stay longer I wouldn’t have ruled it out.”
Susan Logan said: “Next time we’re going to a hotel or Center Parcs. I ain’t never going back inside.”
