Looks like fiberglass, but is it?

I just know it's cool looking and figure it's a Caravan of some type? But maybe one of you know what it is.

Some brand of molded fiberglass built for the right-hand side drive crowd for sure. Maybe Lex or Andrew will weight in...

In looking, I stumbled across this an Adrian Action

Seems like I saw one like that in an ad a few months ago, Robin, and IIRC it was aluminum.... but I could be wrong.

The pic is definitely taken somewhere where they do everything backwards - like drive on the "wrong side of the road" . (nice 64-66 Mustang, and a very "different" hitch. Mustangs of that era were NOT designed to have hitches on 'em (although some did!) but the rear valence came down too low for a hitch to be added easily.

Perhaps the trailer is a LANDER?

hmmmm, cause someone commented that it was glass? Interesting though! I saw it on a post on FB and just thought it was cool. Like I told some FB friends, I really need to stop looking at all the camping sites and just get out and do some camping.................

Not British, but Australian - like us, they drive on the wrong side of the road. It's a Kennedy and here is a forum article about a restored one:

Pam, the best I can do is provide a link with bunches of other links. I ran Spybot yesterday and it dumped a lot of my history: OLDTIMER CARAVAN PHOTO GALLERY VINTAGE TRAILER CLASSIC CAMPING AIRSTREAM SPARTAN BIOD ERIBA TABBERT

It's from this company, but I don't see any pictures: http://www.caravantimes.co.uk/adria-caravans.htm
