I’m so excited — our cool caravans are in print!
SO amazing to see our two little caravans immortalised in print. I was expecting a little mention but incredibly there’s a 4 page article on the two Dollys!
Our Cool Caravans in Print!
It makes me feel so proud to see them in the pages of a magazine.
But even prouder to receive so many lovely messages from people, to say that our caravan makeovers have inspired them to do the same with their own vans.
From Stigma to Sought After
There used to be such a stigma surrounding touring caravans.
And they have certainly always been regarded as the poor relation when it comes to VW campers, that’s for sure. Campervans have an air of cool about them whereas caravans have always been seen to be a little bit dowdy and —dare-I-say-it — embarrassing.
Not any more though.
People are swiftly realising that campervans and motorhomes are costly to run; you have to pay road-tax, insurance, MOT.
Plus there’s the inconvenience of getting to your destination and setting up — only to have to put everything away again if you want to pop to the shops.
Caravans are trailers.
So there’s no road-tax and you don’t have to pay for motor insurance.
Plus once you’ve got to where you want to be, you can simply unhook your car and drive away without disturbing your camp.
Plus caravanning is totally moving with the times. Gone are the boring little white boxes, with a sea of wooden veneer inside. These days — as we’ve done with both our caravans — you can paint and decorate the interior (and exterior) to suit you.
From laughing stock to cool kid on the block — caravans are moving up in the world!
