  10. Can any one help us please. My wife and I are trying to restore a 1950's Vickers caravan and need to replace the lead on the windows. Is there anyone in the Chesterfield area that can do this for us or tell us how to get it done. It is the same style of caravan used by Mr Vickers himself, and we would like to restore it as faithfully as possible. Thank you, Ann and Peter.

  18. Hello, I saw your site quite a while ago and just happened across it again today. I love all the older pictures that you have here. I wonder if you would be interested in some of my family pictures showing some of the trailers that we had from the late 50's all the way up to the late 70's. I have many of them on my facebook page under Terry Bryant Harrison. You may have to "friend" me to see them, I'm not sure......Terry

    (Posted on 2013-05-09 18:49:00 by mick)
  23. Hi Melanie. If it hasn't been removed, the number is behind the side bunk, over the wheelarch area. Some people removed them so the trailer couldnt be dated !

    I'm trying to trace my gypsy origins with a hope of finding and contacting and getting to know my gypsy family.
    The last known traveller was my great grandad whom i know as Jonny Harper.
    I know of only two of his daugters Winnie Harper i dont know her married name and his other daughter Nellie Harper my grand mother which is were my name Neil comes from.
    My Grand mother Married and became Nellie Parker and she Later remarried and became known has Nellie Andrews.
    I know that the Harpers had connections to heath common in wakefield and that Jonny Harper owned a farm in Briestfield near Wakefield i aslo know tha Jonney had a brother who became a music hall entertainer and i'm lead to believe that his stage name was Samuel Sug.

  49. karen.hello,i have rebuilt two westmorland stars and one vickers,in my experience the door hinges can be replaced with similar hinges which would have been used at that time being th 1970s,early landrover rear door hinges would be similar and i used some of these on my westmorland star and looks as close to the originals.the other idea is to go to a metal foundry and get the originals rmade,but would be very expensive.good luck.

  72. Thanks to the people who have posted on here, I havent been on for a while. So to answer some of the questions. To get photos on here you need to email or post them to me to put on.
    The trailers/motors that are 'for sale' are adverts but not sold by me so I cant answer questions about them, contact the owner. Some of the stuff is probably sold but I dont know unless Im told !!
    If anyone wants to be put in touch with somebody please email me, if I can help I will but I dont put anyones personal details on here unless asked to.
    Hope to get some new stuff on the site soon its been quiet for a while now........

  88. Ken and the family, just a line from me and Pat in Texas to say 'Hi y'aal' from the Lone Star State. Ken, you've made this site fantastic, it's better than ever.

    It's rodeo time at the moment in Houston. Dozens of ranchers and cowboys and cow girls ride horses and drive covered wagons and mule carts in to Houston before the Rodeo starts. Most of them stop over in a big park. It lasts 3 weeks and there's lots of rodeo events and country and western singers and a good time to be had. I bet most Travellers would love it.

    Best wishes, Brian and Pat.

  94. I love the site; fantastic photographs. I am looking a for a Nuvardo or similar, dry but doesn't have to be pristine, to live in from mid-April and to preserve. Please do e-mail me on [email protected] I am watching your beautiful vehicle on ebay closely too! Many thanks Vanessa
