General questions

What is a Glaravan?

Open tab

A Glaravan is an old caravan that has been build in the years from 1960 to 1980, restored and modernized towards the current standards. Each Glaravan has a fully revised chassis with nex axles, brakes and clutch. The interior is newly build with isolation, electricity, water and gas. The interior is custom-made to customer request and is build with lightweight materials without compromising on sturdiness and stifness of the caravan. This means a Glaravan is a new caravan in an old shell. We intent to keep the vintage vibe but also create a modern age travel palace on wheels.
