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.
I've recently acquired a Safari 12-2, serial number 74270 which has come from a deceased estate. I've got lots of pictures so I've loaded them onto photobucket, and this is the link. s405.beta.photobucket.com/user/lurch45/library/Safari%2012-2%20caravan The caravan is generally in very good condition, and has been stored in a shed for years. You can still see the grime on the roof which hasn't washed off yet. There is a crack in one of the small windows, and there has been minor corrosion around the screws on the roof. It is completely dry, and very good internally, but whatever is used to cover the panels has peeled slightly, but only at the edges particularly at roof level where it probably got warm. Everything else looks very good. The internal cushions have loose covers with the original material underneath. The chassis rust is surface only, and you can see the way all the brake joints have been greased. Even the hub caps are covered in grease. I get the impression the previous owner looked after this really well. Even the tyres look original (cross plies) I haven't got a price in mind, If your interested make an offer. Any viewing is welcome, we could probably drop it off down the M4 corridor if that helps, or of course this one of the most beautiful parts of the country, and awash with sites, so you could turn it into a holiday We are in West Wales, SA38 postcode, very near the coast.
