Step Inside a Real Life Gypsy Caravan
The Bristol-based company specializes in selling and renting amazing handmade car towable caravans made to look exactly like real life gypsy caravans, the ones we usually hear about in stories or old history books, but we never actually get the chance to see them with our own eyes.
A towbow wagon is also known as a ‘bowtop’, ‘gypsy wagon’, ‘whoopie wagon’, ‘Romany caravans’ or ‘vardo’, and it refers to wooden gypsy wagons and carts, used for travelling from one city to another, in a pure nomadic way.
Greg decided to start rebuilding these unique traditional wooden caravans, in order to bring back the nomadic past of gypsies, in a whole new modern and chic kind of way. All of Greg’s gypsy caravans are for rent, but if you’re considering purchasing one of these amazing wooden wagons, you should know that prices start from $21,500. And that’s just the basic frame.
A gypsy caravan wagon takes around 5 months to build and it’s made from quality seasoned pine, with a waterproof membrane and treated cotton canvas. They can even be used as a home or an RV (vintage models), because they offer a double bunk bed, a spare bedroom, an office and you can even use it as a studio.
It’s about time you started exploring the world like a gypsy!
