Looking for a second-hand caravan?  Email me to see if I have any at the moment.

Want to build your own caravan?  Get inspired by this website that outlines all the steps.  It's a great "how-to".



Spring 2024 is already set to be busy, with four 10' caravans planned.  When they are completed, I will move to smaller  6' to 8' caravans.

If you are interested in a small vendor or camping caravan, please get in touch.

If you are looking for a 10', by all means get in touch with me, but I won't guarantee a 2024 delivery.


A Spring of Caravans Leaving!


Winter came early in 2022, leaving me with several caravans to finish in spring 2023.  After they were complete, the next was a 12' wagon for Pennsic 50.


lightweight, easy to tow

I made 4 vendor wagons this season, 3 on 6' trailers and 1 on an 8' base.  To keep down both costs and weight, I experimented with plywood for the 8'.   

I was able to keep the cost of all 4 around $5500Cdn

Our 2019 Vendor Wagon at its first event:







Summer 2019: an onsite build,

COMPLETED in 9 days!


A 'homewagon' for the municipality of Neebing, Ontario.  Based on the Journey's Middle series of children's books by Barbara Parent, it will be set up in the municipality's park. 

Building started on Saturday August 17 in the Neebing municipal garage! 


  from an empty trailer to a floor and the start of the framing and back wall



lots of  board sanding and painting by helpers Barb and Celeste, ledges complete, front wall framing



Fantastic progress!  Front wall, side frames, both curved ends, and lots more painting.


We stopped early for a trip to the Diamond Willow Amethyst Mine!



roof beams and more painting and lots of visitors!



lots of trim cut and ready, and the first two layers of the roof




over half the outside trim; windows installed; starting the interior



more trim, installed the metal roof, and worked on the sliding door for the wall over the trailer hitch


Here's where I've been working all week -  a 20 minute drive south of Thunder Bay!

Two big bays and great company:

Today's success: finished the (almost invisible) sliding door in the front wall, and installed the Dutch doors.  Painted, painted and painted, and added more trim.  Almost done!






Thank you to my hardworking volunteers: Barb, Celeste, and Bob.

Barb, you kept the details in focus for me; Celeste, you sanded and painted like a pro; and Bob, you kept us smiling, while you got a lot of work done.

Without the three of you, the project would not have run so smoothly and so fast.




Other 2019 Projects


with two single beds instead of a double or queen, and outside trim to disguise the (boring) straight side walls


Lots of build-ins, but it still feels spacious

Our #50 and the best yet!

Finished and delivered to NERO Canada site June 28

This is Pam's third caravan.  (The others were built in 2000 and 2013)

A year in the making, it has every feature she could imagine! 

The interior represents countless trips to flea markets and thrift stores. 

The penny table took up space in our living room for weeks, and she filled the winter hours with creating the stained glass windows.

Now, she can enjoy it!  Happy dreaming!

Painted Cedar 11' Ledge Wagon for Pennsic 


13' Straight sided  Pennsic 2017 


7' Ledge Caravan with an old, weather-worn look.  It's an 1867 photographer's wagon.



Finish It Yourself!

This is as much as I am doing on this caravan.  The owners will do all the finishing work and painting!  The herring bone pattern took longer to do, but looks terrific!


Stained Glass Ideas



Plywood Option

Small plywood version of the cedar reading room but less than half the price



    9' Ledge Wagon  for Pennsic 2016

The tongue and groove pine siding was cut for us locally.  The doors were made in the same shop.




8' Ledge  with built-in crib for NERO Canada




 11' x 6' straight sided full time living space



  A fully-insulated chicken coop,  on a simple 4'x5' trailer.  `The girls` are happy in their new home and laying delicious country eggs in the spacious boxes.


After the first, I  suddenly found myself building a second chicken coop, in a hurry, to be ready for the Georgian Homesteading and Survival Show.  Building in modular pieces with plywood is certainly faster!


Next, my cedar reading room caravan. 

Many thanks to Skip Izon, of Shadow River Boatworks, for cutting the boards for the cedar strip ceiling. 

    The writing desk in front of the bay window converts to a bed. 




Minnie, from 2012,  at a pumpkin festival in October 2015

Here's a FABULOUS look!!!  Nancy's horse drawn caravan!

The decoration is Value Village and personal nostalgia, and the effect is stunning!  She says it's finished, but.....







Whether you build your caravan yourself or I help you, my goal is to foster your creativity and bring your dream to life.
