Aunt Mabel has always been proud of her legs. At the top picture here we see her in a friendly “best legs on the campsite” at White Cliff Bay on the Isle of Wight during the summer holiday of 1969.

If you can’t afford the Airstream trailer in the last post or any other trailer for that matter then this might be just the thing for you. It looks like the bloke is preparing some sort of roofing even. Although not the best arrangements for windy day, rather a nifty idea.
