Wayne is continually hunting a bargain on various buy swap sell sites. I would always get a “check this out “or “this is cheap we should buy this”

I was always very hesitant however the day he asked me to have a look at this caravan with the intention to use for road trips, I thought why not. The asking price was reasonable and was in alright condition. It needed some TLC and a bit of love but we knew that was achievable.

With that in mind, we handed over our $3000 cash and purchased ourselves a little 1991 Millard Caravan. The van has the standard double bed, oven/stove top, television, fridge and solar panels. It has plenty of storage and we have converted a wardrobe into a shelving unit to provide us additional storage.

So far we have approximately spent $1000 on the van which includes new batteries, new tyres & bearings, linen and appliances. The van also comes with a full size annexe however we have not used this as yet; we are looking to purchase a pull out awning to provide us some shade on the shorter trips.  We know it needs heating and cooling, however that is not on our high priority list at the moment.

Yes our van is small and we get a few comments about it, but the size is perfect for us.  We are very happy with the little bargain we got.
