Vintage Caravan - 1979 Viking Fiberline - Potential Glamping/ Photobooth Business


Viking Fiberline

2 Berths

Detailed Information
Beds Description

Two small single beds, 60cm wide with new 5″ thick quality foam mattresses newly upholstered in durable and practical faux leather in 2018. Could easily be converted into a double bed to sleep across the caravan with the addition of a central board and foam.

Conversion Description

Fully refurbished vintage caravan. Adorably retro on the outside with a cheeky fully modernised interior.

We have used the caravan as a mobile PhotoBooth for weddings branded as The Caravan of Love! This brought in over £600 per event, which can be a great earner during the wedding/festival season. See our instagram page @caravanofloveuk for further information. She could equally be a great investment for a glamping site. We have also used her for family holidays and has been taken to Cornwall on numerous occasions and down to the south of France. Being so dinky, she tows like a dream.

We purchased and fully restored the caravan in 2017-18. For the exterior this included:
– stripping and repainting the exterior with quality coach paint
– re-sprayed wheel hubs and new tires
– chassis and undergear sanded and repainted
– new window seals in some windows to keep all windows watertight
– new exterior break lights and indicators etc
– stripped and refurbished the tow-hitch
– installation of 240v hook-up

For the interior, refurbishment included:
– removal of all gas
– completely new 12v and 240v electrics including USB sockets
– new lighting including colour changing strip led lights
– interior panels replaced
– new window trims and new oak window sill
– fully repainted and decorated with genuine 1970s wallpaper
– new lino flooring throughout
– new kitchen area with oak worktop
– new fridge fitted 2021
– new electric foot pedal for sink pump fitted 2021
– new quality foam mattresses and backrests with bespoke upholstering in practical beige faux leather with red piping and contrasting buttons
– new curtains and blinds in vintage 70s fabric

Included in the sale are:
– stripy awning (will need 3 poles)
– waste and fresh water containers

This has been a labour of love and a no-expenses-spared sort of refurbishment! Regrettably selling to make way for our latest campervan conversion project. Hoping she will provide someone with a great business venture or fabulous holidays as she has done for us.

This listing is for the caravan only and does not include the photo booth props and equipment or soft furnishings as illustrated in the photographs. If interested, the Caravan of Love branding and logo that I designed can be included as part of the sale. A crack in the front window has been repaired and is stable.

Viewings welcomed. Located within easy distance from Manchester, Sheffield, Chester etc.
