Tramping - it's so grot right now

Apr 1 2011 Posted by Lewis Shields

With the heyday of glamping come and gone, Pitchup.com is right on track in showcasing the very best in hobo holidays as the new emerging trend for 'tramping' takes the nation by storm.

The rise of tramping is the perfect answer to those unconcerned with the trivialities of aesthetics on holiday. Touring caravan accommodation options are being given a thoroughly good make-under. Thanks to celebrity interest in caravanning, from TV personalities through to Channel 4’s ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’, the run-down trailer holiday is now a must for 2011.

Pitchup.com has created a dedicated page on the website, www.pitchup.com/tramping, to showcase their tramping style accommodation.

"People see celebrities in their rusty old touring caravans and think 'if they have all that money but are staying in a caravan instead of a five-star hotel there must be some appeal'” says Dan Yates, Managing Director, Pitchup.com.

“With the surge in popularity of tramping, we’re seeing people wanting to get back to their very basic best. Think dreadlock chic and sharing a toothbrush…in fact, who even needs the toothbrush?”

In celebration of some fantastic new additions to their camping accommodation offering, Pitchup.com have also fashioned the essential calendar for both aspiring and dedicated tramping enthusiasts. The very best hobo holiday spots of the year have been captured in this luxury calendar that will inspire and delight, all year round.
