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,ve been stripping layers of paint from our safari and discovered this
unfortunately barely recognisable. does it look familiar to anyone? i think the white letters on black probably say NATIONAL CARAVAN COUNCIL, but which nation, when and where. as it is on the first original layer of paint i thought it might be UK rather than Australia, or could have been somewhere in between from '68 or 69
The National Caravan Council was established in the UK just after the war to set standards of manufacturing for caravan makers. Pearman Briggs who were the manufacturers of Safari caravans got their certificate on 15th July 1953. I know as I have the original certificate on my office wall.
Members could use the logo on all their production. This logo was used until sometime in the late 1960's/early 1970s.
It was then changed to this style of logo which was used through to the end of Classic Safari production in 1982.
I have looked at getting copy stickers printed - is there any demand for them?

thanks Brian, every little bit of information adds to the story. i did email NCC, hoping for a response and that someone knows the possible route through Europe in 1968/9. i will definitely like to buy a sticker if you do get them reproduced franni
