Arrow Almost Amphibious Trailer!

I want a Fleetwood Pioneer.

And a truck just like this one.

And the nerve to do what this driver's doing!

Back in the 1970's, an English engineer converted a 15' Sprite travel trailer into a hovercraft. He put an inflatable bag-type skirt all the way round and punched a 24" hole in the floor where he mounted a vertical-shaft lawnmower engine driving a fan which inflated the skirt and the cushion.

In the back window, he mounted a motor-cycle engine that drove a propeller and behind that were a set of rudders.

There was a photo in an English magazine of this thing hovering down the River Thames at about 30 knots, passing under Tower Bridge. I've tried Google, but can't find it.

I remember seeing the original of that. He was trapped by rising tide and risked bogging down in the water rather than wait until high tide flooded his rig anyway. Notice the people standing on the isolated beach in the background? It turned out to be a good move, notice the bow wake created by the truck kept most of the higher water away from the trailer. The Jeeps can drive over the sand dunes behind them, but the truck and camping trailer would not. Driven wheels on sand do well, but dead axles create a tremendous drag in loose sand.
