Default Shall I keep it or sell it?

Long story short, am owed money by a trader in Holland and he has offered us a camper van as payment, We wrote the debt off many a year ago so basically anything we get is a bonus.

So, Shall I keep it or not?

I must admit I have been seriously thinking of buying a old heap just for the first few weeks when I move to Spain so I can travel around and more importantly not have to be rushed into a rental agreement until I find the right place and/or the right area to be for business.

Only problem is this isn't an old heap (see pic below of a similar one) so the cash if I could sell it would come in handy but then again it might sell for more when I'm in Spain and it's on Spanish plates and I no longer need it.

GAH! I can't decide!! Help!

It's a sign of getting old that you would enjoy a camper van

I would probably only keep it until I settled in an area tbh as it's a lot of money to be sitting there unused!

I'm more of a aircon'd hotel room kinda guy


But like i mentioned before it may actually solve a few problems short term!

Nice in theory until you remember how ARGH! you get a campers who hold up the traffic and never pull over to allow people to pass!

Not to mention the space aspect! Give me a villa or a hotel room with a nice balcony anyday!
