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 expect many of the members on here are like myself when it comes to owning things you liked as a child, I have been lucky enough to fulfill my dream of vehicles i loved as a kid my favorite car was a Vauxhall Cresta / truck a Bedford J type / Caravan Safari. I first fell for the Safari and its style as it stood out above all the other caravans in the early 60s , my current Safari is a 1979 12-2 which compliments my Vauxhall PB Cresta or my Bedford J Type but in the future I hope to find a 17-4 Will upload some photos when i work out how to do it on here

Well finally worked out how to copy from another site not quite the same way as the guide need to write down how before i forget,anyway here is a few photos taken on the 300 mile journey home from Yorkshire to Devon the little Safari towed great with no problems despite being laid up for 10 years A little bit of work to do inside mainly the front window frame and the side panels by the seats but the side window frames are sound, the wood finish inside is good just going to repaint ceiling and walls/ re-cover seats and ad new curtains late 50s - early 60s theme The outside will be re-sprayed white with a blue stripe either to match the truck or baby blue to match the Cresta
