This van was purchased new in 1952 by a shearer from Ballarat, who planned to use it for accommodation while working. After one trip in the van it was decided it wasn’t suitable and was put in the shed where , over time the front doors fell off, which explains the weather damage to the front .After the shearers death in 2001 the van was given to his nephew , who planned to restore it but due to family commitments he decided to sell it to me. The Rowvan is in excellent condition inside and only needs some masonite sheeting replaced on the outside.
Since purchasing this van I have been in contact with the original builders of these vans and they have given me a brief history of these caravans.
