Gypsy Caravan Set to Travel

A gypsy caravan is one of the more unusual lots entered into the Charterhouse classic vehicle auction on Wednesday 15th April at the Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet.

“At our classic vehicle auctions bidders are always interested in speed and or horse power, but this lot comes to sale with no horse power at all making it quite a rare sight at our auction!” Commented Matthew Whitney

The bow top gypsy caravan has been in the owner’s garden near Bath for the past 10 years. Bought in a fully restored and repainted condition, it has been used as a summer house and occasional guest wing for visitors during the summer. This caravan has always been treasured, so much so the owners built an oak frame around it to protect it from the elements and a stone wall to prevent any caravan thieves pulling it away! However, with a re-model of the garden, the owners have now decided it is time to let a new family enjoy the caravan.

Entered into the Charterhouse auction in its brightly painted colours, she sleeps two adults and two children estimated at £9,000-11,000. Offering better sized accommodation than a shepherd’s hut, and an alternative to a yurt, this 21st century glamping caravan could take to the road once again, be a feature in a garden, meadow or even provide an income as they are very popular to hire.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for this specialist auction of classic cars and classic motorcycles on Wednesday 15th April and for their auction of pictures, books and antiques also in April.
