O.k., so 1979 may not be vintage, but it is almost as old as I am. That makes it pretty old.
We’ve decided that a caravan is the ideal way to encourage us to get out more and see this beautiful land of ours. I was also desperate for another project. Wife, being her usual commonsensical self, has suggested we use the caravan for a season before doing any work on it. That way we can find out what we actually want to change on it before pulling out the power tools. Bleh. Boring
We selected a pop-up/pop-top trailer caravan because it is easier to tow, and easier to store at home. There are some great canvas-sided caravans out there, but as soon as we saw this solid-sided model we had to have it. This is a 1979 Liteweight Expander, originally produced by Liteweight Caravans in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Let the renovations begin!
