THE ONLY FORUM FOR ENTHUSIASTS OF CLASSIC SAFARI CARAVANS MADE BETWEEN 1948 AND 1982.
This group was started in 2003, with the aim of encouraging the preservation and enjoyment of all Safari Caravans made before 1978 and of the classic shape with the drop front side window made until 1982.
We try to assist owners in preservation, restoration, sales and purchase of these excellent Caravans. Membership is open to anyone who owns, has owned, or would like to own a Safari caravan, or is a supplier of products or services directly related to these Caravans.
The world's largest collection of photographs of Safari Caravans is now on the Facebook group.
Hi Brian, we now own 79221, which you have in your list, we also have a second Safari, but it is hidden in my barn out of reach. once I can get near it I can send the reg number to keep your list updated. many thanks bobansen (Bobbie & Senta
Hi Brian, in regards to the Safari listed, I have located another late model 14/2. It belongs to a friend who lives local and for all intents its a very nice van which has of late been the subject of a considerable amount of TLC. The serial number is; 82182 which makes it a 14/2 1982. I did note that you do not have this van recorded. regards Bobbie Towers if you require a photo of the van I will need to ask the owner first.
Hello Brian, nice to meet you at last, I still cant get to the other Safari 15.4 on the farm but our other 15.4 is now ready for outings the serial # is 79275. I know beyond any shadow of doubt that you would not have this lady on your register. The history is that 1 owner from new. A fairground family who also used to have a haulage Business in the Midlands (Wheatley) Original inside, even the paint outside is "as was" photo to follow on soon regards Bobbie and Senta
Hello Brian, we have just bought our first safari, to restore and enjoy! Serial no. is 66119. It's a 15/4 but according to your list, ours is on it as a 15/5? Do you have any history details please. Many thanks jon and zoe
Djd - Thanks for the info. Your Safari was spotted by a Facebook Group member back in 2014 and so is also on the register. If you go in Facebook to the group and search for "Collins" there is a thread about your Safari as it was then. You do not have to join fb or the group.
