Caravan? Very confusing...
Bill Phillips: The travelling fairs and circuses have some amazing caravans. This one is at Avoncroft museum. Some of them were towed by the big fairground engines.

From a time when timber and craftsmanship were relatively affordable. Looks very grand all the same!
Bill Phillips: It is beautifully done if a trifle OTT!

Very impressive; looks much better than my own hovel. It gives the impression of being Tardis-like; bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside.
Bill Phillips: Some of these Showman's vans are pretty big
Looks like my garden shed.
Bill Phillips: Dream on
I could live in it. It has some nice touches.
Bill Phillips: Mobile luxury Mary

I would never have guesses that this was a caravan - how amazing!
Bill Phillips: I believe there are holiday versions you can rent!
Some of these old fairground caravans were real works of art. Not far from us is a place where fairground people rest up over the winter and there are quite a few of these in there.
Bill Phillips: Yes indeed they are Brian
A very luxurious home on wheels Bill!
Bill Phillips: Indeed it is Richard
Good heavens! Does himself proud, eh?
Bill Phillips: I imagine it is all about status within the travelling community
i like all that timbre, very well taken care of!!
I loove this Bill!
One of the most elaborate & finely decorated caravans I've seen, Bill. Lots of money spent on this one.
