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.
Well folks, time has come to reveal my safari..... I would like to say before judgements passed that in my defence, had I not intervened when I did this was headed straight for the hot knife and would no longer exist period. So although its not everyone's cup of tea....it's still alive n kickin' like a mule and next year will be touring more festivals around the country showing people how proper trailers looked once upon a time!
This was shortly after I obtained it, I had to put a temp frame in place to stop it collapsing in the wind as ALL the wood had been removed inside bar the door frame n one skylight frame...
Now with two "lined sides n front and back having "some" structure I had to jig the whole thing square with minimal resources. Ur Guna cringe buth this was unbelievably effective despite looking very dodgey. Two ratchets fed through that price of skylight frame and attached to my KACK Lada 4x4....
The next morning, Soundsystem wired, ready to rock.
....and there u have it. What "it" is, can be somewhat subjective but I can guarantee what it was...junk, what it envolved was patients what needed was enthusiasm,imagination, time, understanding friends, and what it it became was something that got people not only talking about safaris but dancing and jumping about in front one (mostly drunk) proclaiming their new found love for them. Laydees and gentlemen....your welcome
