About The Historic Caravan Club
The Historic Caravan Club was formed on January 16th, 1993 by a group of Historic Caravan Enthusiasts at a meeting in Tetbury in Gloucestershire with the aim of maintaining close contact in order to promote the restoration, preservation, use and display of early historic caravans. Since then the club has grown quickly and become widely accepted as the reference point for anyone with an interest in the subject.
However, we still need to publicise the movement as much as possible as an increased public awareness will help in the location and rescue of rare examples of early caravans which may otherwise be left to rot or be destroyed due to lack of a home. It is not essential that new members are not owners as it is important that people join who are looking for a suitable caravan. This ensures that homes are waiting for those rare caravans which turn up with a time limit before they are destroyed.
If you feel you would like to be a part of this please go to our joining page where you will see our main range of activities.
