Derrick Knight's Travelling For a Living (1965) is a BBC television documentary on the Watersons, a family-based singing group from Hull, Yorkshire. At the end of this clip they sing Ewan McColl's "The Thirty-Foot Trailer."
Here is McColl singing the tune with his sweetheart, Peggy Seeger.

A small room inside a bay window. A single bed, a table and chair, and a sink. I could manage something larger, with more conveniences, but I could never match the view.
The road ahead is over 200 miles long, and I will leave for it shortly. A small bag beside the passenger window. A change of clothes, a toothbrush and floss, and a book.
Hopefully all goes well, and at the end of the day I will have my trailer.
