Own business: caravaning
This material is just about a rare chance when you can get involved in a business for which there is a great demand, but there is still no intelligible proposal. So, caravaning.
The word was born in Europe fifty years ago, but the phenomenon has always existed. However, prior to this, the “house on wheels” was mainly associated with the lifestyle of the not very prestigious social segment. Roma traveled with their belongings, seasonal workers, and other trampers working for them, who in the southern states of the USA, for example, were called “hobo”.
Then came the fashion for ecological philosophy, everyone remembered and began to read the best-selling book written in the 19th century by the American Henry Toro – “Walden or Life in the Forest”, communes, ashrams appeared, India, with all its religions and sects, penetrated to the West.
In the end, after a short burst of “yuppie culture” in the 1980s, coinciding with the flowering of neoliberalism, Europe and the United States returned to the ideals of the 60s — a time when the world first felt acutely threatened by civilization with its drugs, chemistry, synthetics and weapons of mass destruction. The world has become clearly anti-globalist.
It affected the way of life in such a way that every self-respecting Western person, regardless of social status, education, income level and presence / absence of his own home, wanted to be free to buy an arba, “donkey with a star in the forehead”, and “with his own not a widow ”go lightly to watch the world until it was very late. Those who still could not afford a truly nomadic life, with interest, got their way during the holidays, trying to arrange life so that it could be spent with the children, traveling a lot. To be yuppie became unfashionable. A thirty-year-old top manager in a dazzling white shirt and a noose tie, having problems with erection and sitting in a traffic jam at the wheel of his own BMW with an anti-depressant pill under the tongue, went into circulation, before he could grow old. It was then that caravaning appeared in the form in which today it is trying to enter the Russian market.

They even made special campgrounds for them, and although there were few motorists, these campgrounds were overcrowded. Despite the inconvenience, the family sat down in the car of domestic production, stuffed the domestic tent, stove, guitar into the trunk and went to watch their homeland. It was a very extreme vacation, but still, there was nothing better than him.
And in the meantime, one of the unattainable symbols of real Western life, along with Coca-Cola, continued to be a van-van in which to live and in which the family travels, where the eyes of the dad sitting behind the wheel are looking. Kinoprokat obligingly acquainted the Soviet viewer with the plots, where the heroes go and ride, and adventures happen to them – our man looked at it all, and passion flared up in him, which no one has yet extinguished. But today you can watch not only TV and not only the nature of the native land. Today, you can safely go to Europe in your camper, especially since she (Europe), unlike the edge of her native aspens, has a developed network of camper sites and traveling on wheels as a special tourist product. And we have to build these parking lots and write routes is not a problem. Only now there are almost no campers. But they will be soon. And it is desirable that you be the first to enter this market.
