Caravan Magazine scans completed 
and exclusively available to Club members

During 2019 we were able, with the help of the Caravan and Motorhome Club Archive section at The National Motor Museum to complete scanning all issues from 1933 to 1960. These are available exclusively to HCC members on DVD in PDF format and have a useful search facility. The information in these issues can be invaluable in identifying and dating early caravans and also assist in correct restoration.
