The Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection is the UK’s most significant collection of material relating to the history of the leisure caravan and motorhome holiday.
This unique Collection, which spans from the birth of leisure caravanning in the 1880s through to the present day, has been hosted at the National Motor Museum since 2006. An array of objects, publications, photographs, film footage and sound recordings reflects the history of Europe’s premier touring organisation and the one million caravan and motorhome owners that it now represents.
How to donate to the collection
Thanks to generous donations from members of public, the Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection is a continually growing resource. We aim to represent the history of Club activities, members and services as fully as possible and collect objects, ephemera, photographs, sound recordings and film which relate to our heritage.
Due to current Coronavirus restrictions, the Collections Centre has limited access to visitors, with staff continuing to work from home and onsite. If you have an item you would like to donate the Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection please contact us using our online form.
