    Could not see why you would want such a small caravan when on holiday last year. A couple of days later we saw one again on a site

    Is it a teardrop? Very fashionable these days. Blame Jennifer Saunders' husband. Can't remember his name but he was the bloke on the Young Ones with metal bits in his head. :)

    The Dutch like tiny caravans, lots made by Kip. Easy to tow, economical on fuel, not room to swing a cat.

    Hi.
    Was on a site in France,next to an Eriba puck..Chilli ? The couple were sat out under an awning similar to those on M/homes,having a meal,next thing,he winds the legs up,turns it 180degs sets up again and they finish the meal..... Reason ? The sun had moved around,the move was so easy,you can see why they are so popular,not much room,but NO hassle pitching.

    Yes, this one was used by fairground people and the second one we saw was in a travellers convoy

    Me too! If I wasn't retired, & happily on my permanent holiday, I might start up a mobile launderette business in some tourist area or other... Could be fun!

    Makes sense, a useful thing to have if there is a spare vehicle to tow it. Not sure where the water and waste are connected though.

    We saw one like that on a site in Rouen which was also fairground travellers. All they did was pull the trailer to the nearest water tap, connected the water up and let the waste water run into the gutter of the road within the site. Another family had a washing machine that they carried in a trailer with a roller rear door. This trailer was set up as a complete kitchen, the washing machine was removed, covered up with a proper waterproof cover, and that was also connected to a tap with the waste into the gutter

    Cheers

    It always surprises me that we never see one of these with the long termers overwintering in Spain. They'd be much handier than a kitchen tent and wouldn't blow away when windy.

    A few years back, in Milan, I was given a tour of a couple of them, each with washing machine and kitchen sink and stove. The site was only 6 amp and we wandered how they managed to run washing machine and dryer at the same time. Several families were camped together and had their kitchen trailers in a circle and very convenient it looked too. Bet they're not cheap though.
