From Summer Times, 10:10 am on 2 January 2018

Caravans have enjoyed a renaissance in recent years with many choosing to go back to the older styles to tow around the country. Marilyn and Don Jessen have been caravan enthusiasts for 43 years, with Don's father previously being a manufacturer. They have travelled around Australia and New Zealand to profile some of the prettiest and rarest vintage caravans in the years from 1928 to 1958. The result is a beautiful book with some tips and inspirations for keeping an authentic vintage look with mod cons hidden withing the caravans.
