Summary
Pathe synopsis: This piece of ingenuity is simply a converted Mini with a built-in caravan. It’s just over 15 ft long and that’s shorter than some luxury saloons. Just drive the car away and you’re left with ample living quarters and there’s even a dinghy for those who feel that a man’s place is definitely not in the kitchen.
