Caravans with a difference

 In Blogs

Caravanning is a loose term which can include all sorts of mobile houses, we thought we would put together a selection of photos to show the extreme selection you have when choosing your caravan experience.

Everyone loves going on holidays and in recent years the popularity of caravanning is on the increase, with Australians realising the benefits and value they offer, as this article shows on Australians love affair with caravans.

Early Caravanning

You may be surprised to know that the the first horse drawn “Leisure Van” (photo below) was built in 1880 by the Bristile Wagon & Carriage Works Company. These earlier designs were more elaborate and only purchased by affluent people. Over time, the design was modified to attach to the back of vehicles, which although very 
sturdy and a reliable mode of accommodation, the styles and colour designs have not usually been admired.
