Surfer Rosa was found locally and was one of the first customized caravans we worked on. Originally she belonged to a 93 year old lady who had owned the caravan for many of years. As time progressed the caravan became less used and had been stored uncovered for a long period.
This 13ft Caravan was recently completed as a spec caravan. At Retro Custom Caravans we aim to cater for each individual as much as possible, so for this caravan we decided to leave the inside for a new owner to work with and we focused purely on the structural and exterior aspects. This allowed for the caravan to then be adapted to suit the new owner’s preferences. The colour concept is not our usual but worked really well and as you can see the results were amazing.
Hail Elsie originally began as ‘Gypsy Blues’- a spec caravan for an upcoming event- but before ‘Gypsy Blues’ could make her debut she was spied by an interested customer who had great plans and a strong vision. It wasn’t long before ‘Gypsy Blues’ became Hail Elsie a coffee selling movable vendor.
Mollie is a 1969 Anglo Pullman caravan that was found at a local campground where it had , been used as a permanent dwelling. This caravan was purchased by the owner who then commissioned us to customise it to match the theme and designs of the Port Ohope General Store which they also own in Ohope, Bay of Plenty. Mollie took just over 6months to build and was the runner up at the Whangamata Beach Hop.
This caravan is just what is needed for all summer getaways! Not too big and not too small with just the right amount of room to have plenty of fun. This caravan was stripped back to the bare ali and refurbished from scratch. We left the inside as much as possible to allow room for the new owners to add their own personal touches. This makes it easy for customers to focus more on what they want rather than having to worry about all the nitty-gritty stuff.
La Rosa is a 1960’s Oxford Calypso caravan that was found stored in an old barn during one of my many travels. This caravan was great fun to work with as the more I progressed on it the more ideas I had, making this caravan a real one off.
