Caravans & Charabancs - Leisure Motoring After the First World War 

Vice President of The Caravan Club Sir Harry Brittain with his Flatavan caravan built in 1926.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection has completed its reacent First World War Commemorative Project in partnership with the National Motor Museum Trust.

Caravans & Charabancs - Leisure Motoring After the First World War, explored the untold legacy of this devastating conflict, charting how accelerated social and technological developments in wartime led to a revolution in leisure motoring in the decades that followed.

The Collection's Curator and a team of volunteers unearthed a wealth of untold stories and unseen photographs from the Collection during the project, which appeared in a range of displays, community events and social media campaigns throughout 2015 and 2016.

Add Something New to the Collection

The Caravan and Motorhome Club aims to develop the Collection to represent its history as fully as possible. Thanks to generous donations from members of public, its Collection is a continually growing resource.

The Collection contains a variety of objects, ephemera, photographs, sound recordings and film which relates to its history and founding fathers. It is also interested in material relating to general caravan history and manufacture such as trade brochures.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club is regretfully unable to collect caravans, motorhomes or associated vehicles.
