Lottery
Hove wins the lottery and buys himself an enormous luxury caravan, leaving Pompidou to fend for himself, which he does very badly.

Hoarder
Hove is appalled at the amount of junk in Pompidou's caravan and tries to give it to a charity shop but it is rejected so he sets up a stall to sell it at the church jumble sale. Pompidou assumes various disguises in which to buy it back, including a pirate, a geisha, a Rasta and Freddie Mercury, this last disguise being so impressive that he is invited on stage to sing.

Cold
The caravan is bitterly cold and the repair man refuses to come and fix the electric heater - leading Pompidou to try and set fire to a pile of chairs to keep warm. Hove stops him and suggest they go on holiday to sunnier climes but all they can afford is a camping holiday and, since outside is even colder, they decide to have it in the caravan, erecting the tent and starting a camp fire, which of course leads to disaster.
