"Amazingly the advert also suggests that a motorcycle combination (ie motorcycle and sidecar) could also pull it quite satisfactorily. I wonder how many people did try pulling it behind a motorbike?"

Oh my

Interesting none-the-less!

Very similar in construction to the original teardrop trailers. All of the plans were available in Popular Mechanics for the homebuilder.

True, it does. The caravan in Kitchen Stories, a very funny, quirky and entertaining movie, looks to me even more like a precursor to the TaB. Warning though, strong Volvo 444 content

To be fair to Tabbert, the German company that originally built the Tab, it is loosely a copy of their own 'Ideal' trailer from 1955:

Designed to be towed by the very small cars then being made in Germany, it weighed 240kg (530 lb).
