What do we class as Retro?
We accept all leisure vehicles pre 1990 and define a Retro caravan / camper as being one that has been manufactured before December 1982. The Reason is quite simple; the recession of 1981/1982 saw the end of most of the traditional and long established caravan marques who failed to capture new audiences and subsequently went out of business. By 1982 a new breed of caravans and caravan manufacturing emerged and the traditional hand built caravan as we knew it was a thing of the past as modern materials, production line techniques and mass building took hold. Another big factor in the cut off of 1982 for Exhibition rallies is that glass windows were no longer permitted to be fitted in caravans as of 1983.
We welcome all leisure vehicles, Caravans, motor caravans, folding caravans, trailer tents, motorhomes, campers, American, English, European, Period, Historic, whatever you have, we will welcome you with open arms. We look forward to meeting you on a rally soon.
