As the British weather welcomes summer, the two friends find a roadside spot to set up their camp. The transformation of the sidecar into a caravan commences, revealing a cleverly designed space with all necessities tucked away in various compartments. The motorcycle, a Panther Model 120 with a 650cc single-cylinder engine, plays a pivotal role in their journey.

The process begins with the women detaching the roof of the sidecar. The motorcycle proves useful as a makeshift ladder to secure the caravan’s roof. Once the transformation is complete, the women can unwind in the comfort of their compact caravan.
