What's more than five metres long, powered by a diesel engine, converted from a van and costs more than £50,000 - yet is now a dead cert for a place in my dream three-car garage?

If you've ever owned or even spent some time in a camper van, chances are you've jumped straight to the answer and are nodding your head in knowing understanding.

If you haven’t, chances are you're wondering instead if the frost has seized my brain. I’ll admit now that there was a time that I too thought that paying a huge sum to lug your bedroom (and kitchen) around with you was absurd.
