When Dan Trudgian started his YouTube channel and left his job in IT, he couldn’t have imagined what might happen next.
As it’s turned out, his channel is integral to the caravanning community, boasting more than 42,000 subscribers at the time of writing.
With his videos regularly gaining tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of views, Dan’s throng of loyal viewers clearly values his clear and informative content — as do we.

To put it simply, this channel has a bit of everything. Whilst Dan’s primary objective is to offer practical advice to caravanners, he’s also documenting a genuine family experience that is a joy to be a part of.
