#1 Air Opus

Expect to pay: £16,000-£18,000
www.opuscamper.co.uk

When it comes to sheer luxury and convenience, the Air Opus self-inflating folding camper is hard to beat, even if it’s not everyone’s idea of what camping should be all about. Pitching is so easy. All you have to do is find the perfect spot to spend the night, fold out the ends (the hyrdraulic struts make this easy) and flick a switch.

In less than five minutes you’re good to go, with zero effort on your part. In fact, while it’s inflating, you’ve got just enough time to make yourself a cup of tea. Once the structure is in place, it takes a few more minutes to set up the inside.

With leather-look corner sofas, LED floor lighting and a fancy sound-system, you could be forgiven for thinking this is a posh nightclub’s VIP suite rather than somewhere to enjoy the great outdoors. “But it’s not real camping, it’s caravanning,” some will say.

And when you look at the way the Opus is kitted out, they might have a point. But this is still about living under canvas, even if it’s right at the top of the comfort (and price) scale. And if you can afford it, why not?
