An ode to the 70's caravan....

Now I’m not criticising the modern caravan, but 1970’s, caravans were just ‘different’. They had groove. They had a MOJO.

 

Our first caravan was a 1976 Cotswold Windrush, a classic of its time, top-of-the-range, handbuilt, solid and comfortable. Here she is, after a bit of restoration and a shiny new paint job.

...and a touch of 1970's wallpaper....

 

 There's a modest amount of space for food, a large cocktail cabinet, and a wine bottle holder. Here’s the cocktail cabinet...

 

Another feature is a seating area that turns into a huge comfy bed. Like HUGE. I’d call it Super Mega King Size, if such a classification exists. With tiger cushions.... Grrrrrr.  

 

So, I have to come to the conclusion that 70s caravanning was all about having enough room to stash your alcohol and making sure you had a good place to crash after a night of partying?

 

Ah yes, the 70’s… it was all about the groove….
