Van for Motor Bike Combination

UNFORTUNATELY I cannot afford a car or a proprietary van and so, in desperation I designed and made a little van to accommodate two.
Readers might be interested in general details; length 7ft. 3ins., width 4ft. lin., height 4ft. 6ins., weight 3 cwts (approx.), cooking by primus stove, wash-bowl fitted, Dunlopillo mattresses, electric light, wheels 16x4 India tyres, towed by an Ariel Square 4 600cc. 1935 combination (home-made sidecar incidentally).
We have just returned from an extensive tour of South Wales, and there are plenty of hills, on and off the main roads. No difficulty was experienced and maximum legal speeds were reached without any sway. We carried food, kit, paraffin, water, oil, petrol and blankets for two for 14 days.
I am now making a slightly larger van built in the same style, ready for next year.
