Thread Name: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
Subject: RE: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
I lived in a 33-foot "Mobile Home" ( ie static caravan !) in Carterton, Oxfordshire,with my wife ,for two years,and we loved every minute of it ! It was a Brittania BK 33, no longer made,sadly,and had an end double-bedroom,and a small single bedroom that I took out in order to enlarge the kitchen (good move !).There was a comfortable "lounge" at the other end,with bay windows,and a cosy solid-fuel stove that also gave hot water.The bathroom was "bijou & compact" of course----the bath rather narrow,the hand-basin tiny,and the spin-dryer function of the washing machine made the whole 'van shake somewhat suggestively !! There were gardens to either side,two good sheds,and loads of parking!
          If I had the money ( 650-00 in 1974,but much,much more today !!),I'd go and live in one tomorrow (it would certainly be more spacious than the tiny c1649-built Alms House that I inhabit today !).
