Jeremy's Citroen Stuck

Jeremy's Motorhome stuck on the beach.

Jeremy's Homemade Motorhome, also referred to in-programme as The Leaning Tower of Citroen, was a three-storied motorhome constructed and invented by Jeremy Clarkson. It was built for a challenge that was featured in the fifteenth season of Top Gear. The motorhome was primarily constructed from a Citroen CX Break.


As per the challenge instructions Jeremy's Motorhome included cooking facilities in the lower level which consisted of toaster and a grill. It also included two hammocks on the top storey and a 'Japanese contemplation area' on the middle level. Jeremy also fixed a ladder between the levels for easier access. The motorhome was also fitted with hydraulics to allow it to fit under petrol station canopies.

Road TestEdit

After constructing their motorhomes the presenters were told to drive themselves to Cornwall for a 'camping holiday'. On the journey Jeremy discovered a flaw in his tall structural design. The entire Citroen swayed from side to side in the wind and the weight of the 3 storeys. Due to this Jeremy rebranded it 'The Leaning Tower of Citroen'. The presenters pulled over and Jeremy removed some of windows of his structure so that the air would be able to flow through the structure. This didn't fix the swaying problem though. Later, they pulled into a petrol station to refuel their cars and Jeremy nearly clipped the top of his car onto the canopy over the fuel pumps, although he used the situation as an opportunity to demonstrate the motorhome's hydraulic system to help it fit under the canopy.

Eventually Jeremy reached the campsite, although he got a warning light on the dashboard and was forced to stop. That night Jeremy fell out of his hammock whilst trying to get to sleep. In the morning the Citroen had been blown over by the wind and as such Jeremy hired a crane to turn it the right way up. His Japanese garden was destroyed in the process. Their next challenge was to drive to a beach and get changed into a wetsuit inside their motorhomes. Jeremy appeared to win the challenge although it was never officially announced. After their surfing lessons were interrupted, and Jeremy's car got stuck, they were instructed to cook a meal in their motorhomes using nothing but what they could buy from a service station.

Jeremy's Motorhome plummeting to its death

Jeremy decided to make the main course but was stopped before he could finish when Richard's motorhome caught on fire. The next day the presenters drove themselves to a 'beauty spot' which was a cliff. Whilst Jeremy got an ice cream from a shop at the foot of the cliff Richard and James hatched a plan to park his car right on the edge so that it would be impossible for him to drive it out of the tricky spot. However, their plan failed when the car took off on them and the two were unable to engage its handbrake in time. Jeremy's Motorhome fell off the cliff, breaking into pieces on the way down.
