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.
Hello I am Lorraine, my safari was rescued from the skip it had been abandoned and vandalized, it was in a sorry state when it was given to me in 2011, I did some early restoration, but as it is not under cover it has suffered from horrizontal gales from south-west, so a lot of the internal structure got damaged, which I have removed and replaced to the best of my ability, however there are a few leaks still which are through the windows I am convinced that are facing the south west, if there is anyone out there with any information where I can buy some new window rubbers I would be eternally grateful
hello Lorraine, congratulations on rescuing such a beautiful little caravan. it looks very similar to ours which is a 1968, 13/2 which has made its way overland to Australia, when she was a much younger van. we are slowly, slowly restoring ours to what we hope will be roadworthy and as near to original as we can make her. we too have leaking windows so would be interested to know if you find replacement seals. good luck with yours. it looks try lovely in your garden with those oh so English hills in the background.
Hi Franni lovely to hear from you way out in Australia, I enjoyed reading your intro of Shirley, I guess that it must be a drier climate in Australia than here in Cornwall, but I hear when it does rain it doesn't stop for a few days is that right? I am determined to find window rubbers so will let you know about it when I do. Good luck with your project, how are you getting on?
