So mid-life crises aside, if you are hankering after the great outdoors and want to make a style statement, is a VW camper-van really the way to go? Especially when you can buy a tent that does much the same thing - well it doesn't really but it will have more of an effect when you rock up at a campsite or festival with this little beauty in the boot.
Yes, this genius piece of whimsy is in fact a tent from Firebox.com and at £299 is a hell of a lot cheaper than the real thing. It stands at six foot so you can stand up-right in it (essential at a certain age) and comes in trad camper peppermint green. I'm almost tempted... but not enough to forego a proper bed if I'm honest.
