    The first of a few old camping ideas from way back when.

    Really enjoyed the pictures, reminds me of some of my old camping trips except most were in the US. I really like the scooter tent and the caraboot great pictures and movies thanks for sharing them with us.

    Part two in the search brings me to the cycle caravan...(love the "He men to hee hee men" comment.)

    Followed by a modern day take.

    I bet it takes both bikes standing on the brakes going down hill, it would be bad if the brakes failed or the hill was steep.
    The 2nd one is cool but I personally would rather use a tent, all you can do in the folding unit is sleep.
    Thanks for sharing

    This looks to be difficult to close from inside. The last panel hinges down from the roof leaving scant room within for the arc of the swing.
    There's no door either.

    I only watched the first one. Looks like the scooter isn't needed for the tent.
    Did anyone catch the comment by the narrator, "It's so simple even a woman can do it" :smiley:
