Historic caravans to make show appearance

9b313ba3-6969-491b-a2d1-cc97ffc5f03a

CLASSIC caravans from the 1940s will be displayed at this year’s Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza – also known the Kemble Show.

Originally conceived for steam enthusiasts, the show has grown to include a huge array of classic cars, tractors, military vehicles, motorcycles, aircraft, buses, commercial vehicles, traction engines and historic caravans.

There will be a display of caravans dating from 1948 to 1974, including a rare 1950 Bampton. There will also be an equally scarce 1974 Eriba Puck.

Rob Carthew, director of the classic caravan section of Gloucestershire Steam & Vintage Extravaganza, said: "Caravans form part of our social history. They were originally used by travellers and entertainers before the war. It's fascinating to see how they have evolved into modern caravans, which provide an affordable holiday for many people."

The show takes place at Kemble airfield, near Cirencester, from August 3 to 5.
