Whatever it is it could only be invented in the land of the 2CV. I've often thought about extending sides (or telescopic hulls) for narrowboats but I can't even stop windows leaking so I think I'll leave it for somebody else to invent.

It slides in for towing and out when stopped for extra space. Look at the slight step in the roofline where the extending bit goes under the main roof.

 

 

I often think narrow boats would benefit from the same feature!

 

Nope, it's worse than that - it folds up like a trailer tent!

 

 

 

 

Oh that's just mad!
