The glorious world of vintage caravans

Come with us into a crazy, colourful world of optimism – a world where you’re free go anywhere and do anything; where you’re sexy, sporty and stylish, and your children are always bright-eyed and curious. Come with us through the looking-glass into vintage caravanland.




Eat fondue? Play the violin? Carouse with chums? Cook a banquet? It seems there was nothing you couldn’t do in the golden age of caravanning. We’ve just spent a few happy hours in the German online caravan museum and we wanted to share these treasures with you.

The caravan museum site has hundreds of photos, brochures, drawings and memorabilia, all online. There’s also a caravan collection at the National Motor Museum.

If you remember caravanning in any of these fantastic creations – or perhaps even still spend your camping days in a cocktail dress or lederhosen – please tell us all about it and send us some photos. Just leave a comment below or send us an email.
