    A word to those thinking seriously about building a gypsy wagon. We bought this book at the beginning of our gypsy wagon research thinking it would be a good resource. It turned out being virtually useless however as the book is full of errors and typos. The design is also a little strange in that it doesn’t feature the typical benches that come out of the sides. Instead the benches come into the interior space, wasting valuable floor space. After these discoveries we totally abandoned the designs in this book and made our own, based on photos of the traditional caravans and sheepherder wagons. By the way we will be offering plans based on our design soon! Check out our site for updates whittleddown.com.
