romany gypsy trailers

THE PHRASE USED BY TRAVELLERS TO DESCRIBE A CHEAP OR UGLY TRAILER IS "ITS GOT NEITHER SHAPE NOR MAKE"

THAT CANNOT BE SAID FOR THE TRAILER BELOW, IT CERTAINLY HAS STYLE, SHAPE AND MAKE.........

AN ECCLES ARBORETUM.

notice the chrome legs and 'bumper', early 'flash' !!

                This was clearly a very fine trailer.

    By coincidence this trailer is seen in the photo

ON A FEW YEARS......A 50's VICKERS LUNEDALE 22'

This model had a pull down out of wall separation from kitchen bed.

Many of these had the kitchen at the front but this one was at the back. Note the low roof at front and rear, later heightened to allow for china cabinets to be fitted at each end of the trailer.
