Vintagecaravans.com has achieved alot in its short time on the www, the website is responsible for the restoration of hundreds of pre 1970 caravans. Forum website members have sourced vintage caravans from everywhere, and many have been lovingly restored, with many more resto projects underway. Without the success of the vintage caravan craze, these old road touring darlings would be still sitting around unloved and rotting away in backyards, commercial properties, paddocks and leaky sheds.
Another big achievement of vintagecaravans.com is the technological advancement of many car enthusiasts. Many an “old school” car enthusiest, who were previously ignorant to computers and the internet (I’m not into computers or don’t want to know about computers being typical comments), but over time they’ve realised the fun they are missing out on by being ignorant to the computer, so have taken the time to learn how to use the poot n net.
But the greatest achievement of all, is the fun that people have had with the whole vintage caravan concept, and the friendships and relationships that our members have formed.
Vintagecaravans.com lacks the structure, politics, purple circles and bullshit that is associated with many clubs……….. F U N is the objective, and that we do have ……plenty of !

One excellent example of a woman enjoy a vintage caravan project is Megan from Bridgetown WA.
