Once neglected, the historic caravan is becoming increasingly popular on the classic vehicle scene. In this book Jon Pressnell traces the evolution of the touring caravan from its earliest horse-drawn days through to the lightweight aerodynamically styled 'designer' caravans of today. It is an absorbing tale of a cottage industry which expanded rapidly in the motoring revolution of the 1930s, as the motor car extended the horizons of the British public; a story of how the caravan evolved from a half-timbered 'cottage on wheels' to the mass-produced streamlined versatile trailer which we take for granted today. This book brings alive, with the help of a fine selection of period photographs, the appeal of this vital part of our motoring heritage.
