History of Caravans – From our friends across the pond

Veteran RVer and contributor Greg Illes ran across this piece recently and sent it along with the following intro:

Most of us know that Europeans call their RVs “caravans.” But did you know that – contrary to the U.S.’s “nomadic” origins – the early UK caravans were for the upper elite?

Here’s a brief history of our neighbor RVs across the sea – presented in an interesting timeline infographic. Learn more.

Many thanks to Caravan and Motorhome Parts (and Greg).
