Beaulieu Spring Autojumble, 2016

For something a little different, the Retro Caravan Club managed to secure a display stand at the Beaulieu Spring Autojumble, at Beaulieu Motor Museum, New Forest on 20th and 21st May, 2016. Our idea was to create a 'Campsite Through Time' with ten caravans on display, ranging from 1935 - 1982. Amazingly, eight out of the ten members attended with a classic vechicle too, really adding to the display.

The Autojuble itself is huge. You can find anything and everything for your classic car, and even a few caravan related treasures were to be found. Sadly most of Saturday was poor weather and raining, leaving Club members free to roam the show and the motor museum (free entry included) as the Club stand was quiet. The Museum itself is home to the Caravan Club Collection. They house a 1920's Eccles box caravan, 1950's "Royal" caravan (a half-size play caravan gifted to Prince Charles and Princess Anne in 1953) and a 1960's Bedford Dormobile Motor Caravan. The Caravan Club Collection is also an exhibit within itself, showing visitors the history of caravanning in the UK with some very rare memorabilia such as old caravan badges, flags and sets of china. The Museum also boasts a mono-rail, which is free to ride, and offers an unusual birds eye view of the Musuem and grounds. 

Luckily, the weather really picked up on Sunday. The crowds soon drew in and our Club stand was innundated throughout the show hours. Amazingly, lots of classic caravan and camper owners were visiting, and we're delighted to announce that we took no less than 31 new members over the course of the weekend! 

Thanks must go to the Retro Caravan Club members who created the display and took pride in showing their set ups. Period props were placed, tables laid and caravans were cleaned to give the public a great viewing experience.
