What you show as a van or box trailer are known in Oz as a cargo trailer.
Horses are carried in horse floats.
A flat trailer ("car or utility trailer") is simply a trailer.
A box trailer is as pictured here;
That pictured trailer appears to have large diameter wheels. My old eyes are not the greatest anymore, so I'm probably mistaken, but does that trailer have dual wheels...or is just me mistaking a shadow effect ?

Wonder what the approximate cargo (weight) that is rated at ? Looks well made.

Speaking of coleslaw: Have you ever tried a coleslaw and chocolate sauce sandwich?
No, canít say I have: is that a Kiwi delicacy then? And does it use dark, milk or white chocolate sauce?

No, not a Kiwi delicacy. Many years ago, I worked in a restaurant and sometimes we would experiment by making something with the most unlikely of co-joined ingredients. Most of these concoctions were just bad, while others were sickening. But, strangely, coleslaw and chocolate sauce works. The only chocolate I've tried it with, as it was all I had available, was dark.

A work colleague years ago packed sandwiches for his lunch - every day - made with peanut butter and salad cream. He claimed it was wonderful. Salad cream, btw, is like mayonnaise with the proportions of oil and vinegar reversed.

I stuck with cheese.

My wife loves peanut butter with just about everything. But, can't say I've seen her try salad cream.
Salad cream happens to be the condiment that, to me, most resembles vomit.

That was the 205 GTI which came in two flavours: hot and off the scale. The hot one was the 1.6 GTI which was a rocket ship, the wundersled was the 1.9GTI which went like a SAM after a bogey and was terrific fun. Which is why I have unhappy memories of it - it wasnít mine, I was driving and bang ding oww.

Dadís Pug was a 405 estate contemporary with the 205.
I had a lot of fun in my girlfriend's father's 403 estate. 3 on the tree. Huge space in the back. You could fold the centre row of seats down to make a play area. We got married soon afterwards.

Corn on the cob. Buttered with salt and pepper. A universal culinary treat in any language, in any country.

It is the common thread that binds us all together.
OK, but leave out the salt. I like to taste the corn.

For really fresh corn, you must grow them in the kitchen garden. When they're ripe, put on a big pot of water and bring it to a boil. Open the kitchen window. The corn picker in the kitchen garden needs a good arm. Pick them, toss them through the window, pull off the covering leaves and put them into the boiling water immediately. Yum.

We bought a bag of these at Menard's last week.
Very intense buttered corn flavor. Good but almost too intense.
"Artificially flavored potato chips". Sorry, but no thanks.

But I did,

But there are always just a few partially popped pieces of popcorn in every bowl, and those ones got me, twice in half a century. A favourite snack used to be a bowl of popcorn, which I would wash down with a beer, The beer being usually a Molson's Canadian....or if I was feeling 'international' that evening, maybe a Newcastle Brown Ale, or aCoors or a Budweiser.

We used to buy a large case of unpopped popcorn at Costco. Good deal.
Ooo. Newcastle Brown is good.

Ughhh, yes! You're right. On my short list of things I definitively don't eat. Others are tripe, oxtail and porridge of any description, insects (except for those ingested involuntarily while cycling), tongue, spiders, worms, rats, bats, dogs and cats.
Oh, and Subway.
