Don Jessen is the photographer and author of a new book Retro Caravans - Vantastic Kiwi Collections (published by David Bateman) The book profiles the growing trend of restoring retro caravans to their former glory in NZ.
For Don, it's been a longstanding interest...
One day I spied this old, very old delapidated 1956 Liteweight caravan sitting in a commercial nursery and I ended up acquiring in and restoring it…and I guess my love for the vintage caravans started about then… From there I realized other people were getting interested in these old vans as well.
