How to Design a Camper Tour?

According to our experience, the organizer would start learning the world map 2 years in advance, and during the following 6 months, search for companions, fax the countries, travel month and a rough itinerary, then 8 months earlier asks for help from the agencies in different country with the quotation (make sure you have kept free days for visa application for next country), hand over the relevant documents for application 5 months before arriving.
