The worlds oldest caravan has pitched up for the final time after 128 years on the road. The Wanderer was built in 1884, and is now on display in the Cotswolds. Read on for more and lots of pictures http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/articles/view.asp?id=731

It really is a sight to see - beautiful craftmanship. Another reason to visit the Broadway site in the Cotswolds!

Technically when it comes to age, it is comparatively young in comparison to true caravans which operated in the Far East over a thousand years old.
Beautiful craftsmanship though.

Very beautiful. Nothing new nowadays will last as long as things made decades & decades ago. I think their pride was in their work, then built to be proud of.

Many thanks for the info.

Wonder what it is worth money wise. (Spot the bloke who works for a dealership!!!!!!!)

We had a similar one on ebay last week. Went for 500.

Seriously though it really is a lovely thing. Not really a caravan, more a work of art! Have to agree with pnefan - bet it's never seen damp.

We had a 1960's Carlight Cassetta on display a few years ago, and that got a lot of comments!
