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.
1981 Safari 15/4. Bought brand new by my father shortly before he died so has had very little actual use. Has been lying out behind my mother's house for several years now and has fairly extensive damp problems. All original upholstery, curtains, full set of Safari glasses in cocktail cabinet. Original fridge, cooker and heater. I also have all the original paperwork and instruction manuals. Ideal restoration project. Reluctant to break up for spares but would consider.
Your Safari was spotted at Carlight in April and the serial number was passed to me. Are you still waiting just for a quotation? Carlight are recognised as top quality restorers but have prices to match their reputation and so their quote will not be an economic proposition against the finished value of any Safari. So unless your restoration is for sentimental reasons you will be better off selling it as it stands. Let us see some photographs and we can give you a better idea of its value.

For sentimental reasons I would love to have the caravan restored and would hope that the family might use it occasionally. However if it is too expensive to restore then I shall very regretfully have to sell it. I have some photos, but not being very computer savvy I can't get them from my "in box" to this forum.....might I e-mail them directly to you so that you could put them on the board for me? Sorry!!
