CaravanTimes presenter extraordinaire Alessi is back again. This time we send him out in the field with an AutoTrail V-Line Sport 365 with two extreme sporters Simon and Faye for a spot of wakesurfing at the New Forest Water Park.

Simon and Faye usually hitch up and tow a caravan when they go on their adventure. This time round they got a chance to use a van conversion camper. They were both very pleased and surprised with the ease of the camper. They were able to simply pull up to their destination, park their leisure vehicle and then get straight into their day's activities.

Using a camper van for an activity like this is exactly what the touring lifestyle is about. Find a location, find an activity and then go and explore. After a long day dipping in and out of the waters of the UK you can step into a nice, warm and cosey V-Line sport. Have a hot shower and use the heating system to stay before enjoying a warm home cooked meal.

We CaravanTimes reporters never shy from a challenge and are not afraid to get our hands dirty for the sake of journalism. Alessi suits up and gives wakeboarding a run for its money, well kind of. The extreme sport duo show off their skill set on the water which leads to the brave Alessi taking up a board and diving in head first. By the end of it I think there was more water on our presenter than in the lake. Once Alessi crawled out of the depths he was able to make great use of all the facilities found inside the V-Line Sport.

This fantastic Auto-Trail really is perfect for anyone who wants to get involved in the touring community.
