Lady Eccles Looks to Tour Again

  • by

An 89 year old caravan affectionately known as Lady Eccles is looking for a new owner in the next three day Charterhouse auction.

“What a great looking vintage caravan, full of old charm and she even has lead lattice windows for that quaint English country cottage on wheels look!” Commented Richard Bromell. “Sadly, the owner passed away recently and now she is looking to be rehomed.”

Lady Eccles was born in 1933 as an Eccles Model 35. Her first owner was Sir Rouse Boughton who bought her from The London Caravan Company in Bond Street.

At the outbreak of war, she was commissioned into the war effort being used by the Observer Corps until the end of the war.

Sir Rouse died in 1962 and left the caravan to his daughter. She passed away in 1992 after which it was discovered by the vendors parents in a very sorry state and restored to her former glory.

She will make an ideal companion to be towed behind a vintage car for touring. She will also make a good alternative to a shepherd hut for those looing to generate some extra income as an Airbnb type rental, to put visitors up in or even as a quirky home office or studio.

Estimated at £4,000-5,000 she will go under the Charterhouse hammer on Friday 2nd December at The long Street Salerooms, Sherborne DT9 3BS.
