• Short Summary

    An interesting camping idea.

  • Description

    Black Park, Buckinghamshire.

    A new idea invented by Victor Rosen of transporting a bed that will fit on top of your car. Demonstrated by two women dressed in shorts who drive up in a Vauxhall Cresta. Panning shot of lake at Black Park and car drives up with roof rack. The two girls get out and test the water and then run back to their car and start putting up apparatus which is on top of car (.....is particularly handy for women who are scared of insects and crawly things that usually invade an ordinary tent).

    One woman puts ladder up to the tent and the other blows up a mattress. They then construct a tent at side of car where they can get changed and come out in their pyjamas. (For the technically minded the fitted unit gives a bed space of six feet six inches by three feet six inches; weighs only twenty pounds, is rain proof and takes less time to put up than an ordinary tent. The measurements of the girls, by the way, are not available!). One of the women goes up the ladder and climbs into bed.
