Love it and really like the arc on the door
The last one to switch from left side to right side driving on the Continent was Sweden in 1967. England is the only country left (on the left). The English caravans would have the door on the "wrong" side.

Heather, Where are you in Calif ? There are two fb trailer meets coming up in N Calif. + the Oregon Gathering in mid summer. I would love to see this. I checked some of my photos I took of caravans on the continent, all are right side doors like ours because they drive on the right. I've camped a bit in the UK also, theirs are on the left. UK campgrounds are often just pastures that are mowed for the short camping season. Not many luxury "RV Resorts" like we have. I think you would also fit in with vintage campouts, which there are many of in Calif. Check out " Vintage Campers Trailers " magazine and website. Headquartered near Sacramento. Hope to see you soon. David in Sonora and Fresno.

Ireland, Scotland and Malta are still left as well.

Carol, Paul may mean that England is the only one on the left in Europe . (England roughly meaning the UK ? ). Yes, Ireland and Scotland still drive on the left; I rode around Scotland on a motorcycle pulling a trailer. Clear around the top , over 1000 miles. But many other countries in the world drive on the left, including Japan. David in Fresno and Sonora

LOL yup I suspect your correct but I know a few Irishman who would strongly object to being group in with the United Kingdom ;-) Ireland has been a free state since the early 20's.

Yes many former British colonies remain left hand drive including Australia, NZ, Hong Kong, South Africa etc.

....and Japan. Do we have a complete list yet?

I witnessed the Swedish change of traffic as a visitor. They spent a lot of time and effort prepping, rebuilding intersections, new signage, education, etc. and it was done without a glitch. Impressive.

Almost 30 years earlier, some countries on the Continent switched over, also without a glitch, but for a different reason. The Nazis marched in and said you vill drive on the right NOW! From what I heard as a kid, it was done instantly.

apparently not. A quick google suggest there are still 66 counties in the world that drive on the left hand side.

Really cute! It doesn't quite seem like molded fiberglass, as in made from two pieces and then joined top to bottom or side to side. Looks more like panels joined together. Would love to see more pictures. It will be a real show stopper wherever you go with it. Hope you can come to a rally with it this summer.

I noticed that Antarctica is neither left nor right... not enough traffic on that snow to need traffic laws, lol. What a great place for those who enjoy boondocking in winter weather; drive anywhere, camp anywhere! Take your half in the middle, nobody cares!

I was first struck by the legend indicating it is left, right, and N/A - what's this N/A? You negotiate before you pass somebody? And Antarctica is not a country, unless the penguins voted and I missed it.
