I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’m kind of obsessed with vintage caravans. I have copies of Vintage Caravan Magazine and an entire Pinterest board dedicated to them. When we drive past an old caravan parked on the side of the road I always strain my neck looking for a “for sale” sign in the window, and I spend a ridiculous amount of time daydreaming about cozy little vans filled with homemade quilts and vintage knickknacks. Last year when one of my favourite bloggers, Kate, and her family travelled around Australia in their vintage caravan, I was so jealous I started spending hours at a time searching for vans online (even though we have absolutely no space to keep one!)
I’m sure one day we will have a little caravan of our own. Though, what we’ll do with it I’m not yet sure. Often I think it would be great to have one for holidaying and travelling Australia in. Sometimes I imagine setting up a little carvan shop. Other times I think I’d just like a vintage van that could sit at the bottom of the garden and be used us a tiny study/studio space… I think the smallness and coziness of caravans make them a bit like cubby houses, but for grownups. How lovely!
What do you think about vintage caravans? Do you have any secret obsessions? What do you daydream about?
