Summer drivers might have to wait patiently behind one or two caravans before they can overtake. But 15 in a row – all pulled by a single vehicle?
Don’t worry. It’s not a situation you are likely to encounter any time soon. Ford created their caravan of caravans for a new film that demonstrates the remarkable pulling power of their new Ford Ranger pick-up.
The new film shows the Ford Ranger effortlessly towing its 20-tonne convoy when the driver notices a car behind, anxious to overtake, and waves the other driver past.
It is only then that the number of caravans becomes apparent.
Measuring almost 100 metres in length, the caravan of caravans included a 1950s Airstream, a hippy-themed caravan, and a caravan especially for dog lovers – complete with paw prints.
Behind the wheel of the Ranger, precision driver Paul Swift.
“This was the slowest stunt I’ve ever done – but also one of the hardest. Trying to keep the caravans on the straight and narrow while the car drove past was a tough challenge, and one that really demonstrates the Ranger’s capabilities.”
