THE ULTIMATE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE?
From cars and wardrobes to homes and holidays, we are strapping in to the economic gloom and doom and ligthening our loads. In an age where downsizing and stripping back to basics is the new thing, I couldnt help but wonder what it would be like to sell up everything at home (including the home) and hit the road !! As a lover of the outdoors, I still prefer to have a good bed and warm shower at the end of the day so camping and glamping never was my thing. A roadtrip has always appealed to me, not one that goes from A to B but one that just keeps on going but the thought of Caravan parks and seedy motels put a dampener on that so, enter the Campervan! Now I’m not talking your everyday wood vaneer , gas bottle strapped on the back and annexed tent with fly-wire, instead, think 40ft of luxury in the “eleMMent palazzo”! Standard features include pop-up roof terrace measuring, floor heating and a bar, en suite bathrooms and rainfall showers and of course room for a MINI or Ferrari to be stowed away on board. With claims of ‘eco friendliness’, 500 horse power and turbo charges, I’d be getting around efficiently and, quickly! With a price tag of a mere $2.4m, here’s hoping my downsizing at home will find me enough spare coins around the place for a deposit.
