Re: 1972 10ft York (almost) complete caravan rebuild

What great work on something I would have thought impossible,😲 well done!

You have more skills than me in that reno. I wouldn't know where to start and the confidence to go with it.

Great photo storyline, thanks for sharing 👍

Re: Old '72 York Caravan reno

Hi @twocutekelpies,

 

Hope you are staying safe and well.

 

There has been a real spike in interest in caravans this year for obvious reasons. Did you complete your renovation project? It would be great to see some final shots if you are able to share them.

 

Please let us know if you need anything.

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

Re: Old '72 York Caravan reno

Hi Jason, safe and well here in QLD thankfully. I'm afraid I've been AWOL between work and renovating and will have to catch up posts on here. 🤗 I finished the little York last month and she passed registration with no real issues except that because of the new drawbar, she's now registered as a 2020 Homebuilt, which is unfortunate but at least registered and road ready. She was also sold a week after completion to a lovely young couple who bought it as an anniversary present for themselves.

I'm now onto my next project, a 15ft 1977 Millard. Nothing really to report on that yet, at the moment I'm just working on getting outside watertight and painted and restoring the windows.

Fantastic work @twocutekelpies. I'm sure that lucky couple will have loads of great experiences and make plenty of happy memories with the van. Congratulations and many thanks for sharing an update with the community. We are really looking forward to seeing what you tackle next. 

 

Stay safe,

 

Jason
