Karen said: “Anything can and does happen in caravans and motorhomes.

"My caravan now doubles as my prep kitchen when I work at food festivals. It's fantastic, as I have everything I need and get all the benefits of campsite life.

"Fresh air, changes of scenery, companionship, solitude - we all have our own reasons why we enjoy living our dreams, and for me the list is long.
