Caravan (towed trailer)

A caravan, travel trailer, camper or camper trailer is towed behind a road vehicle to provide a place to sleep, more comfortable and protected than a tent. It provides the means for people to have their own home on a journey or a vacation, without relying on a motel or hotel, enables them to stay in places where none is available. However, in some countries campers are restricted to designated sites. Caravans vary from basic models which may be little more than a tent on wheels to those containing several rooms with all the furniture and furnishings and equipment of a home, they are used principally in North America, Europe and New Zealand. In Europe, the origins of travel trailers and caravanning can be traced back to the traveling Romani people, showmen who spent most of their lives in horse-drawn caravans. Samuel White Baker purchased an actual Gypsy caravan in Britain and shipped it to Cyprus for his tour in 1879; the world's first leisure trailer was built by the Bristol Wagon & Carriage Works in 1880 for Dr. William Gordon Stables, a popular author of teenage adventure fiction, who ordered a "gentleman's caravan".

It was an 18-foot design, based upon their Bible Wagons, used by traveling preachers in America's Wild West. Stables named it Wanderer, he travelled around the British countryside in it and wrote a book documenting his travels in 1885 called The Gentleman Gypsy. This moved the Duke of Newcastle to commission The Bohemian. By the turn of the century,'caravanning' for leisure had become an popular activity. In 1901, the first dedicated caravanning club was established; the Camping and Caravanning Club was founded by the father of modern camping. The Caravan Club was founded in 1907 with Stables as its vice president, its stated aim was to "... bring together those interested in van life as a pastime...to improve and supply suitable vans and other appliances...and to arrange camping grounds." Caravanning gained popularity in North America in the 1920s. Modern travel trailers come in a range of sizes, from tiny two-berth trailers with no toilet and only basic kitchen facilities, to large, triple-axle, six-berth types.

Caravans the Vardo, have served both as a significant cultural icon and symbol of the nomadic Gypsies. Until the early 19th century, Romani caravans served as a means of transport and not as a domicile. At the beginning of the 19th century, more Romani people began to live in their caravans instead of sleeping in tents; the caravan offered greater protection from weather conditions and could be outfitted with modern amenities such as wood-burning stoves. Caravans were commissioned to be built at the request of newlywed couples and their families; the small-scale, pre-industrial methods of the builders and the labour-intensive nature of the building process meant that a family's caravan could take up to a year to build. Trailer caravan is defined in ISO Standard 3833:1977, Road vehicles – Types – Terms and definitions, term No 3.2.1.3. In the United States and Canada, the history of travel trailers can be traced back to the early 1920s, when those who enjoyed their use were referred to as'tin can tourists'.

As time progressed, trailers became more liveable and earned a new name in the 1930s and 1940s, the house trailer. In the 1950s and 1960s, the industry seemed to split, creating the two types that we see today, that of the recreational vehicle industry and mobile home industry. Today travel trailers are classified as a type of RV along with motorhomes, fifth-wheel trailers, pop-up trailers, truck campers. Smaller travel trailers and pop-ups are still made with touring in mind; these are less than 18 feet long and contain simple amenities. By design, they are quick to set up or prepare for travel. Most weigh less than 3,000 pounds and can be towed with a large car or small truck depending upon its towing capacity. Lightweight pop-up trailers weighing less than 700 pounds, such as the Combi-camper and Kamparoo can be towed by small economy cars; some exceptionally light travel trailers can be pulled by motorcycle or bicycle. Fiberglass body construction entered the U. S. scene in 1971 with the introduction of the first U.

S.-produced mini travel trailer, called the Playpac. The Playpac, invented by Steven Whysel, was the answer to the needs of the growing horde of VW "Bug" and other small-car owners who wanted a hard-shelled camper, light enough to be pulled by a small car, it came with a private water closet and the ability to sleep six. Its ultramodern aerodynamic styling and domed skylight by the modernist industrial designer Toshihiko Sakow made it an instant hit, it was short-lived, however, as the first Arab Oil Embargo and the ensuing major slow-down of RV sales caused it to cease operations. The Boler travel trailer, was developed in Canada in 1968, soon joined the Playpac in the U. S. fiberglass light-weight class. The Hunter and Amerigo travel trailers were on the scene by then. Mid-range travel trailers are 18 to 25 feet long, can weigh 5,000 pounds or more, are towed with compact pickup trucks and SUVs, they sleep fewer people. Larger travel trailers are made with the full-time user in mind; these range from 25 to 40 feet long and contain all the comforts of a luxury condominium.

These amenity-laden models can reach 12,000 pounds or more, requiring a purpose-built tow vehicle, highway tractor or large truck or SUV. While trailers may weigh in above

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (film)

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds is a 1972 American drama film produced and directed by Paul Newman. The screenplay by Alvin Sargent is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same title by Paul Zindel. Newman cast his wife, Joanne Woodward, one of their daughters, Nell Potts, in two of the lead roles. Roberta Wallach, daughter of Eli Wallach, played the third lead. Middle-aged widow Beatrice Hunsdorfer and her daughters Ruth and Matilda are struggling to survive in a society they understand. Beatrice dreams of opening an elegant tea room but does not have the wherewithal to achieve her lofty goal. Epileptic Ruth is a rebellious adolescent, while shy but intelligent and idealistic Matilda seeks solace in her pets and school projects, including one which gives the film its title. Matilda's science experiment is designed to show how small amounts of gamma radiation from cobalt-60 affect marigolds. Matilda has managed to muddle through a grim existence in a dilapidated, debris-ridden house in a lower middle class neighborhood, learning to deal with her embarrassing mother while managing to avoid becoming anything like her, a future for which her sister seems fated.

Vincent Canby of The New York Times observed, "The Effect of Gamma Rays is not a stupid film; the talents of everyone connected with it are unmistakable, including those of Mr. Newman, a director of plain, straight style. It's just that the basic material calls for a kind of second-rate bravura performance from everyone, from the production designer to the actors.

There's no way to underplay it. At times I had the feeling that Miss Woodward was auditioning for the role of Sadie Thompson, that Miss Wallach was in competition. Only Nell Potts is allowed to perform at something like a reasonable pace. It's a lovely, solemn performance in a film that otherwise succeeds in being too barren and too busy, like Beatrice herself."Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times said the film "is hard-edged enough to be less depressing than it sounds" and noted "Joanne Woodward's performance is not like anything she's done before... It serves notice that she is capable of experimenting with roles that are against type and making them work." He added, "Paul Newman's direction is unobtrusive. And the performance by Nell Potts is extraordinary, she glows."Variety commented, "Newman has gotten it all together here as a director, letting the story and the players unfold with simplicity and discernment."Time Out London called the film "an engaging adaptation" of the play "which sees Paul Newman's cool, lucid direction transforming what could have been a pretentious domestic drama into a touching account of small joys in sad and stunted lives...

Potts steals the movie, but what makes it so watchable is Newman's reluctance to sentimentalise." Joanne Woodward was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama but lost to Liv Ullmann in The Emigrants. She won the Kansas City Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actress and was named Best Actress at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, where Paul Newman was nominated for the Palme d'Or.
