    Note: No PopUps or Hybrids were harmed in the making of these videos. Well maybe a few.


    A towing vehicle with the proper amount of horsepower and torque is usually a good idea.



    Fans of Top Gear know that you should never park your “caravan” in the Top Gear parking lot.

    Your fire extinguishers should always be charged, up to date and placed in a convenient location at all times. Here’s why:



    You know how when you put the camper away in the garage for the Winter and it was a tight fit? Well, remember that next Spring.



    OK, remember I said "No PopUps or Hybrids were harmed in the making of these videos", I lied !




    Hope you enjoyed this post and had a good laugh.

    Definately the little car that couldn't. Kind of disturbing blowing up a old PUP.

    I often found the "Toxic Caravan" section of the UK Pseudo Science program "Brainiac" a bit disconcerting. That and "Stars in their Caravans" they always looked salvageable to me.

    The blokes in the ally...

    I was thinking drinking was a part of this and it was confirmed @ 1:38.

    "I'll have another pint plz!"

    LOL

    The cornfields in the blown up PUP looked like where I grew up. I 2 don't like the idea of a PUP being blown up.

    I like the little car that couldn't. No checking of the GVWR there.

    There is another British Top Gear episode that my DH and I were watching and we could not stop laughing. In it the hosts had a contest to see how they could pull a rig with something precious in their rig.

    I had to go with the Little Car that Couldn't.

    I've always been a fan of the Darwin awards.

    "The little car that couldn't" is just long enough of a short so you get the idea. The guy's comment about "running a little rich" was a great adder to it.

    I want to know what was making that loud buzzing noise in the C-Class burning video. I expected a propane tank to make a loud hiss as the safety let go. The power lines are close, but it seemed to be a higher pitch (and changed) than 60Hz arcing.

    I too like the little car that couldn't the best.

    Second would be the TT stuck in the alley.

    The motorhome burning is just sad. The other two are created and to me don't have the same impact.

    I agree with Toedtoes. In fact I could see no sense in blowing the PUP up, I have seen worse on the road.
