Dutch Style Caravans

We are building and selling gypsy caravans since 1996. So far we sold 80 just about anywhere in the west of Europe. My designs are based on 1950’s Dutch/Belgium models that were used by gypsies and fairground people and also by folks who needed to travel to make a living, like harvesters. Nowadays our caravans are used as offices, guest rooms, studio’s etc. Because of the wheels people hardly need any permits. Prices range from 25000 $ to 35000 $.

I don’t expect to sell any in the States because of the cost of transport (6 to 8000 $) but the pictures may serve as inspiration for all THL fans.
Our ‘fancy’ datcha is some 50 square meters including the balcony. It features 2 small bedrooms and a bathroom and a kitchen area.

    What would one of these end up weighing?
    That is important info to know since it affects how the unit will be towed, or at least is in my region.
