With the recession biting, more and more Britons are opting to holiday on home soil this year. And Christine Walken discovered how the change in habits is giving a boost to the caravanning industry.

According to The Caravan Club, so far their bookings for 2009 are up by 40 per cent compared to figures this time last year.

For many struggling in the current financial climate, caravans have become a more viable option when it comes to booking their holidays. And it's a boom industry, as the numbers of Brits caravanning has risen steadily for the last six years.
