The retro caravan craze continues at an ever-increasing rate with more wonderful restorations hitting the road every year and younger families now joining the movement. Caravans from the 1920s to the 1980s are being restored and used to recapture the long hazy days of summer that many of us remember so well. Don and Marilyn Jessen have hit the road again to discover more caravan collections and highlight some of the local history behind these wonderful vehicles and their enduring appeal.
Don Jessen is the author of five previous best-selling books, based on New Zealand stories and collections: Three Wheeling Downunder; Retro Caravans - Vantastic Kiwi Collections; A Great Indoors for a Great Outdoors - the Story of Liteweight Caravans; Retro and Vintage Boats - Kiwi Portraits, and Vintage and Iconic Aircraft - New Zealand Collections. Marilyn Jessen is the author of Her Space - She Sheds and Back Rooms and Kitchen Tables. Marilyn co-authored, with her husband Don, the Australian/New Zealand titles Vintage and Retro Caravans Downunder and Classic Car and Caravan Combos Downunder.
