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 all. I hopes onetime can advice me on the best thing to use between the caravan exterior handle on back and front I between the body and the handle to help keep moisture out. I think there was some sort gory bee washer before. What would you use! I have water coming in!!!!
Over the years I must have removed 20 of these handles, but have never found any sort of washer under the base. What I have found is a lot of non-setting sealant (sikaflex 512 or similar).
To stop any more water getting in - remove the handle, use white spirit to remove ALL traces of the old sealant. fill the screwholes with sealant and then push a large size rawlplug into the holes. Put a lot of sealant on the bases of the handle and screw it to the body. Let it settle for an hour or so and try tightening again before removing the excess sealant.
