    The article calls them "unusual", and they were certainly that. But they were not rare. I hitched all over France, and most of northern Europe for that matter, between 1982 and 1987, and whilst I would not say that they were a common sight, they were not too scarce either.

    I got to see one most times I was on the autoroute. The driver (of the car I was in) invariably knew what they were and what they did. Seemed to go mostly into the north and east from what I saw, and often on their way back during the day.

    I don't recall seeing the brown ones, they were mostly light coloured, and were always a pleasure to spot.

    Ahh the Tissiers. Wouldn't they make a great mobile home!

    Someone needs to find a road test.

    Cheers, Ken
