Camper map devices?

Which satnav should I buy to get a larger screen and the facility to input vehicle sizes INCLUDING lifetime updates on Europe maps?
I don't want to have to keep renewing map licences/fees during the lifetime of the unit.
I'm not really bothered about lists of campsites/aires/stopovers, etc but if they come as part of the deal, fine.

    You will need to buy a subscription (currently a good deal @ £60 for 18 months of updates) of the map https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/maps-services/shop/travel-map/europe-camper/ and of course a compatible device:-

    Look into the Garmin Camper 760LMT-D 7 inch Sat Nav - Europe.

    Thanks for that. I guess the question that follows is:
    Will the 'non-standard vehicle' function still work if the CAMPER maps are not updated but the normal Europe maps kept current?
    I say this with the impression that the 'Camper' maps would appear to be mainly an option of offering ADAC/Bord Atlas/whatever campsite info.

    The camper map can be set for your campers dimensions regarding road restrictions etc to plan suitable routes which are not available on "normal" maps and do not just incl campsites etc

    Please give Customer Services a call and ask them the same question.
    This is to log the fact that none of the "New" NAV4 devices support "camper" maps :(

    I will.
    I will also try and get an answer to the question I really want answered, ie, what happens to the accuracy/functionality if lifetime updates are part of the deal and 'Camper' maps are installed - but out of date.
    I don't travel in Europe every year - most, but not every year. The years that I don't, I want to know what happens to the vehicle size/weight input side of it. Obviously, out of date maps will affect the accuracy of the calculation of a route where the vehicle characteristics have an effect - but does the whole 'Camper' system cease to function and revert to 'Car'.

    If/as/when you want or need to update (buy) a later version of the Camper map (after your initial 18 months) then all your previous settings/dimensions/routes etc will be saved into the new camper map. What you would normally do is run the standard UK or Europe map most of the time (with your free quarterly issues) then "switch maps" to the Camper map for your holidays etc.

    Interesting conversation with Tom Tom CS. The guy seemed very knowledgeable.
    All the following is my understanding of the discussion. If you are unsure of anything, or there is anything you are concerned about: RING THEM!! - and Caveat Emptor!!!!!!!
    First. As Niall said: The newer Nav4 systems CANNOT accept the 'Camper' maps and Tom Tom do not currently have a satnav in production that can. :?
    Next. Of the satnavs that can accept 'Camper' maps: they continue to function normally with 'Camper' maps installed and if 'lifetime updates' is part of the deal, then that continues to function as well.
    However: 'Camper' maps will not be updated with the lifetime updates that came with the original satnav. They remain as per the latest you installed with your 'Camper' map deal, unless you purchase an update deal. All functions of the size/weight input side of it will be OK - but you will be navigating a camper (truck-type vehicle?) on out of date info if you try and use it when it's out of date, eg: if someone builds a low bridge after the update expires, you'll find it en-route.
    I would assume that any of the 'Camper' related info (POIs for campsites, etc) will go out of date in the same way. I didn't ask that particular, finer point.
    Finally: The better bit - Being a Tom Tom registered owner, I was offered a 25% discount............... which may just swing me in the direction of the Trucker as an option:8
