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'm afraid that the time has come to part with my beloved 12/2. The dreaded damp has penetrated too far and I don't have the skill or the facilities to restore her. She is a 1979/80 12/2, serial no 80059. Briefly, there is damp pentration around the right side of the front window and along the lantern roof on the same side. There is a dent in the front, near side that was there when I bought her in 2007. Cooker is working and the Fridge is working in all three modes, although both could do with tidying. ZIG works perfectly. Water heater is very intermittent, currently sulking, and probably needs a new electronic unit. Heater finally gave up the ghost during the weekend I was away for the Classic car show at NEC (15 - 17 November) A SurFlo water pump has been fitted at some point before I got her and works well. A Thetford cassette toilet is fitted and works. Interior is original and in reasonable condition with slight discolouration on the seats and backs and some fading of the curtains. Although I have recently been away for a long weekend in the van, I am selling her as a restoration project or for spares and NOT as a useable van. She will tow. I am asking £300 and hope that someone with the required skill can restore her to the condition she deserves to be in. Contact me by email at email@example.com if you are interested, or if you want more information
Dear Oliver Nice to from you again. I remember meeting you (and the dog!) at Car Mawr. You very kindly let me borrow all your manuals to copy - all of which will be going with the van when she is sold. Regards Elfyn
