Long enough that they have become trendy and the prices now hefty.
It was time to take the leap. Find something I liked within a reasonable budget. You can spend $50k on a caravan you know!
So spending MUCH less than that I jumped in and bought a 1983 Viscount Grand Tourer.
Immediately set out to find her a name.
It was decided Florance the Van. #florancethevan
Florance because I wanted something Italian. Florence.
But I suspected there would be some French influence too. France.
And also hopefully some romance of beach and country. Romance.
Clever I thought.
So we have had a couple of test runs on the family farm in Lockyer Valley and so far so good.
I'm trying to decide on colours and curtains and trimmings. I have a Pinterest board going of ideas. http://www.pinterest.com/digella/weekends-on-wheels/
Loads of tea and scones and fires and wine (lots of wine) so far.
