Today's News: “LONDON (Reuters) - A wedding album which went missing when a caravan was stolen in Northern Ireland 17 years ago has mysteriously reappeared at the home of its owners…”

 

What exactly is a caravan?

 

 

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

So, what is a caravan in this context? Why is it used in the American version Yahoo!?

Towable mobile home. Very similar to the US Airstream (below), favoured by those wishing to take mobile holidays, and Irish Gypsies who prefer a nomadic way of life.

It is an evil device, often towed behind a woefully underpowered vehicle purely to annoy other road users.

 

They are used by people who think living in a field and shitting in a bucket is a "holiday".

Must agree.!

 

Dropping down on the M5 into Worcestershire there is a exposed section of the Motorway with a road sign of an overturned Caravan as a warning of high cross winds.

I am always disappointed when I drive past and there and there are no wrecked 'Van's. Schadenfreude.

Few horse drawn Caravans anymore in Ireland. They had a revival in the 80's as tourist Holiday Caravan's but sadly no more.

You dont get caravans & travellers anymore in ireland as the irish government put paid to them so they are now over in the uk & causing havoc wherever they go if you need to look just google dale farm travellers site & you will get the picture

 

 

That site is about 10 miles from my place & its been hell here since it opened thefts & violence all over the place
