Glaravans invites you on the 11th of May! 1920 1080 glaravans

We happily invite you to our grand opening on Saturday the 11th of May. We are working on the first Glaravans since March. Glaravans are modern caravans in a vintage shell. The origin from Glaravans comes from the combination of caravans and glamping. . Glamping is a portmanteau of glamorous and camping and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping.

Our company strips down old caravans and renovates them into modern travel palaces on wheels, including the latest technology available. This means you can go camping anytime, anywhere! Glaravans are built by our own vision but also to those of our customer, which can be the user or a company. Starting from June 2019, we also have a Glaravan for rent. On the 11th of May, we present our first Glaravans to the public and is our workshop open for curios eyes.

On display will be our ‘Pilot Project #0’, a Belgian Constructam Caravan from 1979, ‘Glaravan #1’, a SMV caravan from 1981 and ‘Glaravan #2’, an unique Knaus caravan from 1979. There will be future Glaravans too. The first concepts for our Glaravans will be revealed soon. Keep an eye on our facebook and instagram page for the latest updates!

Glaravans is founded in January 2019 by Erik Baas. As camper, he saw mainly same-looking Caravans without any charm. His passion for old and styleful objects brought him the idea of Glaravans. The unique more cool-looking vintage caravans had so much potential when refurbished from the inside. He bought a Belgium Constructam from 1979 and started renovating the caravan as trial. Inspired by many enthausiasts he created the concept Glaravan #0. The idea of re-using something old and cool is apart from beeing good for our environment, also a way to make vintage modern again.

You are welcome to visit us on Saturday 11th of May from 10:00 to 16:00 at the Pakhuisstraat 8 in Hengelo, Netherlands. If you are unable to come but like to visit us anytime soon, you are welcome on our regular openingtimes.

A question raised by many potential buyers; How is the chassis of the caravan? A good question as many people worry about the driving with a vintage caravan.

Untill Glaravan#3 we maintaned the chassis, brakes and axles, which was fine, but not good enough! Parts of these caravans become more rare and expensive. Glaravans would be hard to maintain and expensive in parts. This made us choose to fully renovate the whole chassis with new axles, brakes and coupling.

This is now the new standard for Glaravans, making it easy to maintain them and improving the quality drastically. Improved road-characteristics, possibilites to add a V-bar and movers. Glaravans are now truly modern caravans in a vintage shell.

Glaravan #1 is a Swedish SMV Caravan from 1981. The first Glaravan ever is equipped with all the latest technology in a ‘vintage shell’. Think of a waterboiler, airconditioning and a big fridge. This SMV with serialnumber #1 and Glaravan logo is looking for a new owner! The caravan is fully renovated where we only kept the outside and chasis.
