interesting - have seen a couple before but this seems too dear to me . incidentally Bond Bug trailer tent - i dont think so !! as mentioned in the ad this is from some years before the Bugs were even thought of . yes built by Bond but a complete mis-match stylewise with a Bug . this type of primitive design owes more stylistically to the 50's than the later design of the Bug . i like them both - but not together  :-\

Looks like a nice microcar museum in the background.

I thought it was Bert Grimmer's mobile trade stand, does rubber mouldings for many machines, behind the Bug.

Considering the difference of era and designer it is surprising how well the two branded items go together, I think. Really there is little common ground but the name. The colour coding helps of course. A Bug would not like right towing one of the snail shell caravans, of which there are replicas. Not convinced the rigid folding jobs would suit either. A Freedom would.
