Overview

From the original concept of using a horse-drawn caravan for leisure, this book explains how the modern touring caravan has evolved from a primitive concept to the sophisticated leisure vehicle it's become today. Andrew Jenkinson, the UK expert regarding the history of the touring caravan, uses a selection of images from his archive library. 

The Touring Caravan explains how caravan manufacture boomed in the 1960's and early 70's and how the economy played a major part in sales. How the Hull area became the nucleus of caravan manufacture from the late 50's to today though now on a smaller scale. 

The book also looks at technical advances as well as interior design; it also shows the reader how this leisure interest moved from a "cheap holiday" to a lifestyle holiday choice.
