Congratulations to Shelley Kettle of Kent, who wins a Bailey Pegasus GT65 Verona for this clever shot.


Shelly says: “After nearly 30 years of joining my parents camping in my second home, Denny Wood, perhaps it’s about time I took their berth downsizing as a hint and acquired my own mobile accomodation! Denny Wood, in The New Forest: a lifetime of memories and a future of fun.”


Editor Rob says: “We loved the idea of recreating this image from Shelley’s childhood. And it’s lovely to see her following in her parents’ footsteps by planning her own caravanning holidays. Maybe she’ll be the one to take them with her this time!”
