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 have uncovered our safari 1979 12/2 has been under wraps for 7years,sadly the rain has got in therefore needs lots!! of attention. To front frame work & windows this will require removal of trims & gutters. We would like to know please what is the best possible flexible sealant to use on the external panels & trim,as the previous product has cracked & seperated. Also the rubber seals around the windows are in reasonable condition but ideally need replacements, does anyone know if there should be a recessed rubber seal let-into the screw fixing rebate at the top of window itself,can anyone help please.Having exposed the framework internally in the front corners I was surprised to find that the top sheet of alluminum on the outside actually overlapes the bottom sheet on the inside which appears to me to be back to front,has anyone else come accross this please. kind regards Bulldogrog
