why, because it allowed me to save enough money to buy my bungalow "cash" no mortgage at the age of 36, but to be fair i started living in a trailer because the work i did at the time (motorway maintenance) required me to be up and down the country all the time.

Re: Anybody live in a Caravan ?

A dozer driver mate had one, he rated it very highly but found that when his D9 was sent to a new construction site it was a real struggle to find a caravan site that would allow a Roma van on.

I think you'll find the grooms in both episodes were both Romany and English, one was a Smith from down your way, and the other was a Lee from up the north both very well known family's in the travelling world, I know relatives of both family's very well......
