AN EXCHANGE MAKES FOR BETTER CAMPING
My wife, Brenda, and I are born campers, and in 1980, shortly after we got married, we bought our first caravan. It was an old Sprite Alpine, which we restored. Next was a Gypsey Caravette 5 and then a nifty Jurgens Esprit.
Our pensioner days arrived and we moved to a smaller house. The yard is cramped and it’s a two-and-a-half-hour struggle to get the caravan out. Meanwhile, my daughter, Jakkie, had a 1983 Sprite Swift that I had my eye on, but the caravan was quite dilapidated. After a struggle I finally convinced her to swop with us. We restored the caravan and, best of all, it now takes only 10 minutes to get it out so we can go camping. This photo was taken at Coffee Bay.
