Get Rhythm Scooter

Check out this fabulous scooter renovation!

This scooter has been highly customised to match the Get Rhythm Caravan.

It is a 1963 Puch 150cc made in Austria but sold widely in New Zealand. I found this pooch at a swap meet in Rotorua and knew it was exactly what I was looking for.

Get Rhythm

“Get Rhythm” is a highly customised caravan both inside and out.

I found her in Tauranga and still to this day it is a mystery of what model she is.

Many say she is home built but I believe this is a factory make. I used Altex paint for durability and protection.

This caravan is all about using your imagination to show that your ideas are limitless.

Hail Elsie

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 1969 Anglo Pullman caravan

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.

Malibu

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.

Caravan Restoration’s

Here at Retro Custom Caravan’s LTD we do not just do complete rebuilds. For some it may just be the outside of their caravan that needs some work completed and for others the inside. Quite often we have clients phoning us to say “help, we have started the restoration, stripped it all out and now realised we just don’t have the time to complete it” and that is totally fine we are always here to help.

Myrtle

This caravan was purchased in it’s original state and therefore all the colours and layout were chosen by the new buyers. This caravan demonstrates both a retro and modern style scheme. The inside has many features and is the perfect getaway caravan to be shared by all.

Surfer Rosa

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.

La Rosa – Oxford Calypso Caravan

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.

Maybellene

Ma Belle

Ma Belle, Modern… yes, Retro… yes and completely restored/customised by us at Retro Custom Caravan’s LTD.Ma Belle was originally built by a Rotorua, New Zealand based caravan company (Muir Caravans) in 1964.

La Bamba

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.

Coffee Cart

Norma Jean — we all know that name well. In this case, however, rather than being associated with a blonde bombshell movie star and pin-up model, the name belongs to the caravan equivalent.

There has truly been no aspect forgotten on Norma Jean from the alcohol cabinet to the built in table cooler, and while you may think this caravan has been built just for style there has been no corners missed making Norma Jeans memory ready to live on for another 60 years.

An awesome find at only $200 I couldn’t wait to get to work and make this caravan something special.
