If you’re looking for a leisure vehicle outside the mainstream caravan market, or you have an affinity for anything and everything vintage, Heritage Caravans’ new series offers something different.
The company will begin production of its 1930s vintage touring caravans, equipped with all the amenities of modern leisure vehicles, in Plymouth over the summer. It hopes to be in full swing by September.
Each bespoke caravan is expertly handcrafted featuring shaped aluminium sheet bodywork and a Mollycroft/showman roof. The interiors are made from natural timbers, and sheep’s wool has been used for wall and cavity insulation for sustainability.
To align with the iconic vintage look, the caravan bodywork is finished in the historic British Motor Corporation paint codes. You can view a palette of selected colours on the firm’s website.
Customers can choose their preferred fabrics and finishes to ensure each caravan is unique and personalised to their tastes. Despite their vintage look, each heritage leisure vehicle is equipped with all the modern features that caravan enthusiasts have come to expect.
The company will produce three caravan models: Classic, Adventurer and Explorer. The Classic model is a two berth caravan, the Adventurer a four berth and the Explorer its most compact offering that sleeps two.
With unique vintage stylings and traditional craftsmanship, Heritage Caravans is an alternative to typical mass-produced white models that most people drive today.
The Heritage Caravan Company was founded by a family of caravan enthusiasts with years of touring experience under their belts.
They believe that over the years, caravan design has lost its charm in favour of functionality, and aim to revive the vintage stylings of 1930s caravans while providing all the modern features and amenities required for comfortable touring.
