RE: Trailer and Van Festival
Since 1976, i've travelled to the IOM in a variety of ways: on foot, by bike, car, plane & rental car, plane & shank's pony, bike with luggage sent to/from hotel by DHL.
The last option was the best until 2013 when i discovered the joys of putting a motorbike in a motorhome. This gives me the best of both worlds, a bike & somewhere to stay (we all know how difficult it is to find accomodation).

As well as a motorbike, I can bring with me a unicycle, longboard, paraglider, etc for non race days. (I generally spend 2 weeks at the TT & 2 at the Manx each year.)

I fondly remember leaving work on a friday night, riding from Kent to Liverpool in the pouring rain, queuing soaking wet (wet weather gear was not good in the old days) to have my tank drained out, arriving to a rainy misty Douglas and having to queue for petrol. Ahhh.... The good old days of rose tinted spectacles!!

By all means enjoy your way of travelling, but lets not be too quick to criticise others. As a pilot, I frequently use the expression "A mind is like a parachute, it doesn't work if it isn't open"
