Vintage caravaners, Don and Marilyn Jessen were so excited to open their emails recently to find an order for Vintage and Retro Caravans Downunder and Retro Caravans from Belgium. We have had some delightful conversations with Johan who owns seven vintage caravans and is a member of the Belgium Oldtimers Caravan Club http://www.bocc.be/Home-E/home-e.html He tells us there are vintage caravan clubs throughout Western Europe and they hold an international caravan rally every year. The next is in Werchter, Belgium in May 2019. We almost booked our flights there and then. He tows his caravans with a 1959 Chev Apache Pickup. His caravans include a 1966 WaWa Edelweiss made in Belgium, a Thomson Miniglen 1968 made in UK, a Notin Goelette 1960s made in France, and still under restoration are a Constructam Comet 1968 made in Belgium and a Vesta 400 1961. Johan has sent through some photos.
Johan also sent links to some vintage caravan club sites in the UK and Europe. Not all are in English, but a picture paints a thousand words. Really great to look through their photo galleries.
