Vintage Caravan Life for Family of 5

This post contains affiliate links.

Digby and the Lullaby are a musical duo with three adorable children who all now live in a vintage caravan, traveling around South Africa. The caravan sat unused for 40+ years and was in great condition, meaning most of the interior is original (or replaced with materials from the 70s).

The caravan has a kitchen, a double bed for mom and dad, and a bunk room in the back for the kids. Since they camp in resorts, they’re always close to bathroom facilities. There’s a surprising amount of storage inside, which makes it possible to live in it full-time. Could you live in a caravan with kids?

  • A musical family of 5 embraces nomadic life in a vintage South African caravan.
  • Original 70s interior, kitchen, double bed, and bunk room for kids.
  • Outdoor space extended with canopy.
