Richard Hammond is a camping convert

Posted by Linda Robertson

It seems that Richard Hammond may be the most recent celebrity convert to caravanning, those with caravan accessories have been told.

Despite being very vocal, along with James May and Jeremy Clarkson, on Top Gear about caravans in the past, as well as blowing up more than his fair share, the father of two has drastically changed his tune.

The turnaround came about while on an Easter holiday with his family touring Cornwall in a VW Campervan, he told the Daily Mirror.

"It was, without doubt, one of our most successful holidays ever and quite possibly my favourite of all time," he enthused.

Hammond even claimed to have sold his own family car to buy a brand new Campervan, in pink.

Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey has also spoken out about his love of caravans and recently told the Kyle and Jackie O radio show that he has put a lot of work into renovating them.
