Does anyone know what the correct name is for those demountable caravan body type things that you see from time to time on the back of pick ups? (see piccy). Also where can you get these things from, new or second hand, and, well anything you can tell me about them really 'cos I feel an idea coming on;)

cheers, Tim

Stabilisers for pikeys.
ie Just like kids have ickle outriggers added to their bikes, these things help you learn the ropes until you can tow a proper caravan.
 
There's an outft called Niche Marketing which offer one type and there are, or were, a couple of other makes available in the UK a few years ago. Try Google or one of the frighteningly anal camper magazines like MMM.
 
"Demountable: Also known as dismountable. This is a caravan unit you can literally demount from a commercial vehicle, normally a pick-up."

List of some manufactures here

Hi Tim
seen these at a couple of shows.
Problem is the cost of new ones, in the region of 15-20 K. at that price you could buy a pikey wagon or a cheap defefender and then send it to the Dormobile company and have it converted for less then 5k
