In the 1970s Perry created his family circus with an English imperial bus, in the 80s with old 1900s wagons and old trucks from the 1950s, some of which are still visible in Belrepayre. He traveled with the Hazzard Circus throughout Europe. Perry and Coline have lived in an airstream for over 30 years, and right now in a 34 footer.
