Holiday fun in cute 50's style

Summer in Australia means many things to different people - but to everyone in some form or another it means HOLIDAYS !


With the advent of car culture came the creation of the mobile home or caravan (although mobile  wagons have been around for centuries), and by the end of the second world war, caravanning holidays were a popular pastime to an increasingly affluent generation.


In the last decade the popularity of restored vintage caravans has been growing exponentially to compliment the rising mid century vintage cultural movement, with vintage caravanning magazines, websites, blogs, restoration companies, and festivals all drawing interest from lovers of the bondwood and aluminium beauties.


With this in mind, just lookie what I have discovered up for sale on the Victorian sea side holiday town of Torquay!  If a caravanning holiday is on your agenda, and vintage style is your hallmark, then you shouldn't look past this darling little van, in beautiful original condition. Here are the details for all you potential happy campers......
