Mr Toad's caravan was what was known at the time as a Gypsy Caravan, a very romantic item. Certainly some years ago, one could hire one to tour around Ireland; I don't know if that's still possible. Of course, you have to handle the horse too. Almost nothing in common with the basic motor-car-hauled caravan we are discussing.
And Owen, if you look in your copy of Fair Cops and Glowworms you'll find AR objecting quite fiercely to motor traffic in the 1920s.
