This mobile home, a real land yacht, might look normal somewhere else, but parked along Preston Street during the tulip festival it looked huge and oddly impressive. In addition to the two side-extending rooms, the luggage bay also expanded. Awning, door mat, what else could be wanted?
Ahh, the “little” runabout on a hydraulic lift, that by itself is very large:
Is this the marriage of a cottage and car? The modern version of gypsy caravan? Suburbia on wheels? Someone’s houseboat with wheels?
And what of our reaction to seeing this … Would we approve or disapprove of this vehicle if it was a houseboat instead of a bus? If the modest dimensions were a landlocked cottage and not on wheels? Does it matter if it is a recreational property or someone’s primary residence?
The whole perception of what is normal, or extravagant, is warped by the wheels.
