When camping goes wrong.....

here's a hilarous story from "Top Gear," the British video car magazine. The guys decide to try "caravanning," their word for our trailering. See what a bad tow vehicle, poor planning, and all things that could go wrong, do. 22 minutes of fun!

Very funny. When you start with a KIA as a tow vehicle it can only go worse from there.

Yea, but it was a Kia Diesel!

Simply painful to watch.

The highlights:

7:58 "What the hell... !!"

11:07 - Turning around. "The police said we should get a move on, or we would be sent prison for 20 years". Ha Ha Ha!

22:25: "And look at everybody, sitting outside their vans on 4.99 garden furniture waiting for Sunday night when they can set out for home and clog up the roads again..."

23:59: "How do you put a pan fire out?" [Hint: not by walking away from it and letting it continue to burn up your entire trailer!]

24:19: "James, one good thing has come of this, at least you don't have to apoligize for breaking the neighbor's tent".

It was pretty funny, but was a little bit insulting to British Caravaners generally.
