This is a tiny house with history! Built sometime in the 1920s or 30s, this caravan/vardo has been in Doug’s family for generations. It’s very simple with a green canvas exterior, wooden frame, and old iron trailer, and in the right hands, it could be brought back to its former glory.

Doug is looking for someone who appreciates the history to purchase it, as illness keeps him from being able to care for it. It sure looks like an awesome piece of the past!

This is a 70 sq. ft. vardo caravan wagon.

The Trillium Caravan is a sleeper camper in the traditional style of the 19th Century English vardo, built by master woodworker Jim Tolpin.

Jim says, “It is impeccably detailed in hand-hewn wood and steel fabricated to the highest highway-worthy standards. One needn’t sacrifice the beauty of traditional materials and antique fixtures for modern convenience.”

The interior offers ample seating–and comfortably sleeps two adults in a queen-size bed. There are beautiful stained glass windows in the front and back of the wagon to allow sunlight to come in.

Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!
