Only in the details.

 

We still "spend our spare time having 'fun' inside a mobile shed. ..........in a muddy field somewhere. ...."

 

That's progress :P

One of my neighbours built himself a caravan in the front garden. He bought a chassis and made everything else himself. 'Twas a long time ago!

My daughter and son in law have done the same. Using a trailer tent chassis a small rigid pod style caravan was built on top earlier this year.

This is it part way through constuction.

First test before completing the project.

Enjoyed those, thanks.

 

I like the way they are dressed appropriately for dinner in #16. My wife and I always dress like this when we go caravanning. :D .

For some reason, known only to Vauxhall, that estate version of the Vauxhall Viva was marketed as a Bedford Beagle!

A similar thing was on our site last winter. I wasn't quick enough to reach the other side to see the door arrangement.
