The M36A2 was sold a long time ago..
Last summer I bought and painted a small Dutch built caravan to tow behind my M1028.
OHHHH, I got it now, just a little hiccup in the many subtleties of language:

- in European usage a house trailer is called a "caravan"

- In U.S. usage a bunch of vehicles travelling together (in a group) is what's referred to as a "caravan"

Language is slippery stuff!

In Dutch language we call this "karavaan" or "colonne"

I agree, language is a bit slippery. You know, English is not my first language, as I am a Dutchman.
In our schools we get taught the British English. All US/forgeign TV shows are subtitled here, so we get a blend of both accents.

English might be one of the hardest languages to learn:

- Its weird, it can be understood
through
tough
thorough
thought
though
