QUEST FOR A NEW CAMPERVAN: Our New Mission – Create a Contemporary campervan for £7000

I’m always amazed at the enthusiastic reactions I get from people when I tell them about our campervan, Trev-the-Prev. Mostly I get a big smile followed by “Oh I’d love to do that!” and I realise that so many people secretly want to ‘live the (campervan) dream’. It was the same for Glyn and I when we hired a campervan on a Groupon three years ago and got bitten by the bug but just didn’t have a hope of affording any van that we’d seen. So now my mission is to create a modern campervan from a panel van for £7000 (all in) and I hope that this will inspire people without a £30k+ budget to get their own and live their dream, too. Here’s how I plan to do it…

CAMPERVAN RECIPES: More-ish Lamb Burgers from Moor-ish Dartmoor (sorry..)

We are not long back from a magical weekend on Dartmoor in Devon which is one of my favourite places to camp and explore. I had a pack of lamb mince from home which needed using up and I was trying to think of how to best use it in a campervan recipe. As it turned out it made 2 meals for us: some gorgeous healthy burgers and some meatballs for a pasta dish the next day…

Spicy coffee


Another great idea from Cooking Without Limits. I might be tempted to try this with some frothy milk which I make in the van with a battery-operated, milk frother

Cooking without Limits

Coffee. Who doesn’t like it? I start drinking coffee last fall. Till last year, I thought coffee had a bad taste without sugar and milk, but I loved the smell of fresh grounded beans. Strange, wright? I had twice coffee when I was a student and I didn’t like it. Now, I love it. It makes me sleep instead of keeping me awake but I love the taste. I don’t know what happen to me, but I like this new me.

When I feel that I am getting a cold I drink spicy coffee. It’s a recipe that I made to keep the sneezing and the coughing away.


  • 1 tablespoon Turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon Chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon


Mix all in a jar. When you want to have a spicy coffee take ½ teaspoon of the mix and add it with the coffee. Enjoy!
