Twin steer and the "highways of the day, I wonder how much of mum and dad's pride and joy ended up as barbecue fuel.

As Swishy said, bit of thought gone into the design of the "Luton Peak", must have added those hinged sections strictly for aerodynamics!
What with all that frontal area, seems a bit uneccesary though, dead space.
Ex overnighter?
Reminds me of the late Bart Cummins's 6 wheeler horse float.

I do not agree that the Luton Peak is "dead space" It probably would not help with aerodynamics or fuel usage but it is amazing how much bulky or difficult to store furniture could be carried there. Think of dining tables and chairs, couches, lounge chairs, etc. Done it and seen it many times.

By the way, back in the 1960s when the E Type Jaguar sports car was released Jaguar were very disappointed to find that the box-like Volkswagen was proven to be more aerodynamic than their low sleek E Type.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Yeah, you'd hope like hell that whatever you put up there was easy to remove!
Just imagine having a breakdown on the road and you have to get the shed up.
Maybe only put cartons and such up there, where you gonna stack it?
On the roof of the pan?

Dave, I'm 99% certain You can Tilt the cab without having unstack the Peak..!!
That Hinged flap at the Front swings up 180 degrees (You cab see a bolt stick out above It that Holds It up out of Place), the Sides can then flare out a Bit. If you look at the First Pic you can see the rub/brush mark on the Roof from where the Flared Bits contact It...

Am Happy to be corrected though...

Furniture removal vans of the era often had no roof .....rather a big tarp that would cover a higher load than the van would take ........however ,furniture delivery vans did have roofs as the furniture stores demanded a water tight van.
