That was funny, though they shoulda tried that with a moulded fiberglass trailer.

Yeh, that's what we thought. The stuff INSIDE the FG unit wouldn't have been in any sort of shape, but I bet the trailer would be OK.

Love that show! and I guess you've probably know what they think of caravans, they've done many things with them including dropping from a crane. Those guys love driving fast cars and hate getting caught behind people going camping.

I just had a chance to watch the whole episode (season 20, episode 5) and, as usual, their tongue-in-cheek take on "caravaners" was absolutely hilarious. I laughed through the whole segment until I hurt. Great stuff from the characters at Top Gear once again!

That episode was especially funny for me because that white VW is our tow car! (More or less, the USA gas version.)
