Is there any white trash amongst us Question
If you love the round curves of a 2cv, you must like the shape of these (zeppelin) cigars.
Do you own a Biod, a Bourgeois or maybe an Airstream?
This one is mine. It's a Constructam Condor-4 of 1972. Very Happy
I will paint the lower half of it in grey with of course the chequered flag.
The Toyota, I sold. Now it's a taxi in Angola!

Hey Muskie, that looks a bit heavy for a 2cv? Can your car tow it without any problems??
Plenty of room inside though i bet?
Better than a tent any day Very Happy

I really love the curves of the 2cv. That's why I bought a matching trailer. Wink Laughing Laughing Laughing

I have to tow the trailer with with my other car, the family CitroŽn. Confused
The constructam isn't heavy though.
Punky's trailer may have the same weight but it catches no wind.
So you can actually use your 2cv.

My Rapido is stripped (so no kitchen and all the stuff I don't need om weekendmeetings) 420kg.

But it catches not so much wind, so it go's well. But I don;t drive it a lot because of the weight.

Looks real nice with the small rear lights and the aluminum on top!
Maybe a light weight teardrop is THE solution for an A-type to pull a trailer.

Hey Jalppis, like the Pod Caravan mate thats really nice Cool . Good to see the build photos as well and what a nice size as they are nomally smaller than that. I guess you needed a bit more room for the child?
Looks like it was easy to build? Any problems with the build?

Tony: Yes it was easy to built. The only problem was the roof aluminium. I had to order it and I had to wait 4 weeks to get it.
The bed for a child works for an under 5 years old child very well.

Hi all ....newbie here ....I've just joined the forum,this is my first post ...so really I'm just testing my that piccy posting is up to scratch ........

I tow this .... its a "Dandy Four" and weighs around 310kg.

It converts to this ....it sleeps four,and has no canvas [the folding bits are PVC.

I tow it with this ... Rolling Eyes ...its my 1988 2CV special.


There's nothing outstanding about the car ....its just a normal 2CV with 9/1 pistons and BX front seats.

best regards
Terry
