For many people caravans are the ideal way to get around the country, see new things and try new experiences.

Keen windsurfer Neil Greentree takes this one step further, using his Bailey Pegasus caravan to protect him and his team from the harsh conditions associated with the sport.

In this video Neil explains how important his tourer is, providing the QSW team with a range of home comforts they would otherwise be without.

He lavished particular praise on the Bailey Pegasus Ancona which he described as "probably the best van we've ever had."

The caravan is not just a base however, and the strength of the Bailey Pegasus allows Neil to stand on top of it to get a better look at the action.

Neil is eager to bring new people into the sport and as so many of our readers at CaravanTimes already have tourers, they are well placed to give the sport a try.

So what do you all think? Fancy giving windsurfing a go? What other things has your caravan helped you do? Let us know in either the comments or on the forum.
