Ledge-style Caravan


This guest space built by Hornby Island Caravans was designed to sleep four people.

    I find this “sleep-only” concept very interesting. No bathroom. No kitchen. Would be great for folks who like to cook outside and function well in climates that are warm/cool year round. Being a guest space means it doesn’t have to have all the amenities. Very well designed and built, it appears. I have to admit that until I saw this one I just wasn’t a fan of caravan style. Nice work.

      A Nature’s Head toilet *could* be on rails, underneath that tall bed. Open a sliding door, or curtains, grab a handle, pull out the guzunder from downunder, and when you’re finished, push it back under. No doubt there’d be a flexable airhose connecting it to the fan and outside vent. As for washing and such, one tank for water above a sink, one tank for greywater, a very simple sink, and gravity does the work. Or, you could install a water system under the bed, around the guzunder assembly.
      Showers are problematic, but think: do you have to stand up to take a shower? How about a waist high tub with a built-inchair, and a hose? A japanese shower. Heck, one could mount THAT on rails and keep it under the bed.

    Hi is this caravan for sale? Love the interior as well as the exterior.
    I’m looking to buy a local, BC, built Tiny Zhouse. Has to be reasonable.
    You are from Hornby Island. I’m near Zhorse Shoe Bay.

    Outstanding job! Simple, could be designed as permanent tiny house with a little larger trailer. Love the Concept. Fascinated with the Vardo style.

    Another beautiful caravan from Michelle Wilson on Hornby Island. They are beautifully built with the eye of an artist and the skill of a master carpenter!
