hmm,,  I'm liking the set up. I'm guessing the car is the bedroom.?? Brockett is the awning designed and bought for the car ? or is it just a camping aid you have used for your purpose

Brockett organises the weather. Luck has nothing to do with it...

That's a fine looking bike park, I must get over to your campsite, though my weekends are taken up running around after my lass who competes in ultra running.

@Tusker. The Car is a FIAT DOBLO . Rear seats removed. I made a platform with a hinged flap. Move the passenger seat forward and drop the flap for a 6ft6 bed. I have not fitted it out as a camper. So it is just a metal tent. The Awning is a SWIFT VAN 260 CANOPY. Look for them on Ebay. Cost around £85. I used box section alloy tube bolted onto the roof bat fixtures and then pop riveted the awning rail onto it. There is still some tweaks that could be done but it's enough for a table and chair to sit out of the sun or rain and cook on a little stove.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
