Reading Caravan

Our Reading Caravan (named after the town where they were first made) is built from solid timber, with hardwood being used for the axles, wheels and steps. There are fully opening windows on all four sides, complete with working sliding shutters to all but the front windows.

The front axle is steerable and with the help of the removable draw bar, and a few strong bodies, the caravan can be moved around the garden according to the season.

Inside, ingenious use has been made of the available space, and each caravan comes fitted out with the following:-

  • Single bed extending to double (complete with a 4" mattress pad)
  • Extending table
  • Built in seating with storage lockers under
  • Traditional fireplace and mantelpiece*
  • Wardrobe with hanging rail
  • Bookshelves
  • Galleried shelving
  • Huge storage area under bed (doubles as secret children's den!)
  • Side table with cupboards under

If you prefer your gypsy caravan unfitted, allowing you space for your own furniture, we will be happy to do this for you - please see our price list.

The caravan comes painted inside and out using quality finishes, and as our caravans are usually built to order, you can choose your own colour scheme and fabrics.

Approximate dimensions:

Internal   6' 0" x 9' 0" (183cm x 275cm) measured at waist height
Headroom   6' 1" (186cm) maximum
Bed   3' 0" (92cm) extending to 4' 6" (137cm) wide x 6' 0" (183cm) long
External   7' 6" x 12' 6" (230cm x 380cm) including roof overhangs
Height   8' 9" (260cm) maximum

*Many people like to have the traditional fireplace, even if they don't plan to have a stove installed, but if you would prefer not to have the fireplace, we can replace it with additional seating at no extra cost. Please note however, this also means removal of the bookshelves, as they are built into the side of the fireplace.
