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.

We've only just come across this site and your post. We've just got a battered Safari 12/2 with some broken windows (front, front left and small toilet). I've no idea if any of the windows are interchangeable between models, but I thought I'd drop you a quick line to see if you still have anything available.
Thanks Brian. We've only just managed to find our way back to this forum! We have been able to reglaze the broken windows with acrylic, and they will do. But there may be other bits we need at some point...
Hi all, I am a new owner of a safari - not sure of the year - of the Van that is... think early 80's... Loving it. I am towing her with my '57 MG Magnette. I am after the offside wheel arch cover... I have been looking into the possibility of getting one made but if anyone has one going spare that would be wonderful...
Hi there, We've just bought a 15/4 and want to bring her back up to scratch so.....do you have the original exterior round awning light? or a pennant holder for above the front window? I assume if the panels are dented and scratched, then your fibreglass tow hitch and gas cover would be too. We're also looking for cupboard catches.
All the best for your new project, hope it distracts you from any sadness at saying goodbye to an old friend!
The round exterior awning light - big sigh. If you read through this forum you will note that they are more rare than a dry Safari! I have also been looking for one for a very long time but sadly can't even find out if they were made by someone like Britax or they were just simply unique to Safari. They do finish the vans off to their original state. If you find out any more details please share them or does anybody else have any ideas (Brian?!). I almost bought a scrap van recently just for the light!!
