Legendary Top Gear Camping Trip Episode


A bit of background here.

1. Top Gear is a car show in the UK, where a bunch of overgrown schoolboy reporters drool as they test drive Porsches and Ferraris. Its great.

2. In the UK, where the roads are smaller, a camping trip with an RV the size of a small cruise liner with slidey out bits is not possible. Trailers (ironically called caravans) are small cramped things pulled by small cramped vehicles of the sort that you tow behind an RV, not the other way around. ‘Caravaning’ is therefore the butt of many jokes, in Britain.

This episode of Top Gear has all three reporters choose a caravan an towing vehicle and go camping together. Hilarity ensues in the ultimate low rent road trip movie.

Running time: 27 mins.
