Touring CaravansBook - 1991
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.
