Welcome to TravellingK's vintage caravan wishlist
This store is all about my big project to renovate the broken down vintage caravan I foolishly bought. It's basically an empty shell, so will need a lot of work. Do you want to help get the project finished? You can buy a specific item below that I'll need for this renovation and if you like, I shall mention your name in the appropriate video. This project wouldn't be possible without you - a big thank you!
|Epoxy to keep out moisture in wood|
There is some interior wood that could become a problem in the future. Sound like I could use this product to stop the wood from disintegrating! It says: epoxy based material that is best suited as a wood saturation system to help harden, densify and seal out moisture.

|Surface Mount 240v Inlet|
I’ll still want to connect to 240v power too and need to replace the old one. Thinking this will sit in a little cabinet the caravan already has! From RV Mega.

|Vents to disguise holes|
I’ve got a few holes on the side of the caravan and really need a few ways to hide them. I thought I could add a couple of vents for the large holes made by the 240v exterior plug! From Burnsco.

|Replacing Front Window|
An expensive one… replacing the front window. I’ve got a $520 quote, but currently getting another. I’ve broken down this item into six seperate contributions to be close to what it might cost. Really interesting reading everyones comments on the ‘smashed’ video. I’m currently leaning towards replacing with glass again because safetly glass becomes extremely expensive. Thinking of adding a film to stop it damaging anything if it does break again. Still need to research about the film too!
