Yes...May's was the closest to this original and Clarkson's was the "house on wheels" and Hammond's was the fully extendable "mansion" if memory serves.......:)

I think the design fault lays in the drunken wee stagger late at night,It was bad enough with the guide rope effing and jeffing with out the 6 foot fall.

I don't think that model Victor was the most stable car to begin with. Putting a camping conversion on one defies belief.

Most inventors make do with what they have at hand, so that was probably the family car, assuming he had a family! ;)

The camping conversion doesn't appear to be a British initiative. All the cars in the photo are LHD, including the said Victor. German?
