    Very nice indeed. Would not like to tow it though.

    Had some great times in our touring caravan in the 80s. Kids loved it, so did adults. Loved the chance to go anywhere, stay as long or as short as you wanted. Was a big beast, 20ft long or more,  plenty of comfortable space. Can’t remember the make, sadly. Remember that, towing with a V6 Granada estate, the whole unit was longer than a coach. Got used to pulling it around, being very careful and, on Motorways, avoiding badly driven (normally Belgian) coaches. Slipstream from an overtaking monster going at 80+mph could make for serious instability!

    There is nothing like opening the door of a caravan straight out into the great outdoors, love it.

    Not so good in the winter though, had a few really cold nights that were not too pleasant 😂

    I know this thread is about caravans, but it sparked a few memories of time in my past enjoying holidays in static caravans..

    So this is as such not a tradition static caravan because there were not really many at that time. This my friends was a Train van!

    Imagine an old train carriage, minus the wheels. Then cut and rejoined in the Shape of a T. The top of the T was where the cooking and washing was done. The cooking was done on a coal fired stove, that also gave hot water. The bottom of the T, which was nearly a full carriage was used for living and sleeping. Lighting was via gas! mantels. original fittings to the coach as where the seating. Beds where made up in the evening by putting planks across seating and mattress’s laid upon them.

    Where was this place of wonderful memories? On the Firth of the Forth near by Port Seaton and not to far from Edinburgh. Fantastic holidays we enjoyed for many a year in a Train van

    Sounds great joss, my first stay in a caravan was as a fifteen year old on holiday in Horsham near Worthing. I was with other members of a club I went to, there was thirteen of us if I remember correctly and we had a fantastic time . I think this where my love of caravans and English girls began lol.
