"The family caravan trip became a common way to holiday in the 1950s through to the turn of the century. A home on wheels towed behind the family car, often rented or owned by a lucky few. How much easier than camping, what a luxury! Still today a real icon of the road.
Before cheap airfares, mobile phones and digital communication, caravan holidays were when the family came together in close quarters and learned about the simple joys in life. The shower block, shared facilities and respecting your neighbours a few feet away with just the thin walls of the caravan and an annexe separating you.
Dedicated caravaners still travel the road but in lesser numbers. They're generally known as "grey nomads" but we know they are anything but "grey" as they plan the annual pilgrimage to their favourite spot or break away from city life to explore the wide expanses."
