Quality & Technology

Vintage caravans are loved and often beautiful to see. Buying one is something different; it raises a lot of questions with potential buyers. The condition of the floor and the equipment are often doubted, with reason. At Glaravans, we take care of these concerns.

Each Glaravan is completely renovated and re-build. This means we only keep the frame and outer-shell of the vintage caravan. To offer you the guarantee of a newly bought caravan, we always re-build the floor and renovate the frame where needed. Once the frame is in perfect condition, we add the latest technology you normally only see at the most luxurious models from the well-known brands.

On average, each Glaravan is fitted with an airconditioning and a water-boiler. We adjust or extend these luxury accesories per model. To have a better sight on what kind of accesories are in a specific Glaravan, we recommend you to look at our portfolio page, which describes all the technology and accesories per Glaravan.

To give you a glance on brands and technologies we use:

  • Dometic Freshwell 3000 Airconditioning/heating
  • Truma Therme Boiler hot Water
  • Reich watersystem
  • Thetford Fridge
  • Can/Dometic stove & sinks
  • Fiamma hatches and watertanks
  • Alko chassis and parts
  • New Electricity system including earth leakage circuit breaker, 12v and 13-pole car-connector. Multiple power outlets and led-lighting across the caravan.
  • New gas-system including distributors and pressure regulator build to service all new equipment.
  • External outside outlets & Gasconnector for outside use.

At Glaravans, we don’t integrate TV-connectors; We prefer to stimulate the social aspect and outdoor living.


Vintage caravans are history wise smaller and lighter in weight. On average, they hardly weigh more than 1000kg and 95% of the caravans we build are under the 900kg. This makes a Glaravan attractive as it fits based on weight, practically behind all cars.

Due we make use of special light-weight materials, we are able to keep the Glaravan within it’s current weightrestrictions. In some seldom cases, we re-label the restrictions after inspection by official goverment agencies. This is possible as the chassis can handle often much more weight than shown on paper. We make sure you have plenty ‘weight’ left for your camping gear.


Each Glaravan gets a fresh coat of paint. This is either in the original color or in a modern color. We re-use the original backlights or replace them with new parts. The chassis of each Glaravan had a technical check and has new parts where needed. Finally, each model gets new tires, including a spare-one if possible.
