    Folding Caravan

    I have just been watching this British Pathe Video - great folding caravan, but really shows another time and another place (sigh).

    I was reminded of my early family holdays, me, my three sisters, mum, dad, dog all our luggage all packed into a motorbike and sidecar!!

      Lovely bit of nostalgia Mary. That was asking a lot of a Scooter !!!!!

      We use to camp using a motorbike and side car (A10). Full camping equipment, two dogs & 3 adults. Luxury !! Great memories.

        Just the thing for tackling Devon and Porlock Hill!

          You have reminded me of a very wet day years ago - family holiday in guernsey. Dad rented a motorbike and side car - him plus we four kids. Great fun - a very strong memory for me!
          Carpe diem! :)

              You have just brought back a memory of the Honda 90 I used to have, many years ago.I came off that bi,e more times than I care to remember and ended up in hospital twice with it. But I was sorry to see it go when I upgraded. The Honda had been a xmas presnt from my dad as I lived in the nurses home which was in the middle of nowhere
              Fond memories indeed.Once I'd passed my driving test though. That was the end of my biking days

                I ended up swapping mine for a bmx for my son as, with 3 young chn, I just couldn't get the use out of it. Found out later that the bike was stolen shortly after , from the new owner, and it ended up in a pool at the local park. Sad! Used to be able to fill it up for about ten bob, if I remember rightly!

                  Those were the days Sue!
                  I used to be able to fill my car tank for less than a tenner. It now costs about £48 and it is only an 8 gallon tank!
                  Same car! So it has to be relative!

                      That takes me back to happy days in the mid sixties when life didn't seem so complicated,we would load our two lads in the back of our double adult sidecar with toys and books,luggage on top, wife in the front to maintain order me riding the 650 panther with perhaps another family member riding pillion out for the day or a weekend or the 250 mile regular trip back to the East Riding from exile in Essex.I'm feeling very nostalgic perhaps its the New year's Eve wine or that I became an OAP today,I'm sure life was so much simpler then!! Suprised that scooter could pull that trailer.

                        Those were the days, eh? No breakaway cable, no checks to see if hitch was attached ok. No seatbelt/crash helmet for the kiddie - and parking and setting up on the beach!

                            I did,t have a garage or anything worth pinching in those days the motorbike and side car were never locked though,but we did live at the end of a three mile no through road five miles from the nearest village where the only person we saw regular was the postman in the days when people wrote letters.The isolation was bliss.
