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 received a message from Adriano a couple of months ago advising me that his brother-in-law Paul had sadly passed away. Paul was the very first person who joined the group in 2003, and the first Safari owner I met with. I was naturally saddened to learn of his passing at a much too early age.
Adriano has just joined the forum and posted this message. If anyone can help him out it would be good, but I understand that his Safari is a long way from many of us.
I am joining in the hope that I can get a message to enthusiasts. I want to make you aware that as the executor of my brother in laws estate I am charged with selling the following (prior to my mother in law sending the whole lot to scrap). A 1980 Safari 12'6 model with a lot of spares and 2 awnings in good condition Serial no is 80196 It has all the original upholstery and curtains I think- but it has not moved for about 5 years. Looking for someone to make a reasonable offer for everything and take it off our hands. The caravan is in Mevagissey - Cornwall - it is in a not too bad condition - an enthusiast would make it road worthy quite simply. A new fridge is needed an the door lock is broken. We also have a spare 1980 Safari chassis made by B and B - that is free to anyone that wants it otherwise that too will go to a breakers yard unfortunately. IN the meantime I will be listing the item on eBay with photos.
