London flat vs campervan: Which would you choose?

Times are tough for youngsters trying to make their way on to the property ladder. Research by comparethemarket.com has shown that nearly two thousand 23-35 year olds in the UK are avoiding high rents by making homes anywhere they can find them.

So if you want to live in the capital, you may have to get creative. We found people living in boats, campervans and even peanut factories in an effort to beat London prices. Traditional housing is not the only sacrifice made by many; our case studies found that if you’re under 35, you may even have to cut down on partying and take shortcuts when it comes to showering.
