Refurbishing a classic car: these companies do that

You often see them passing by on the road: old, refurbished campers and caravans. Real vintage cars. Before you can go out with such an old one, it often needs to be renovated first. This is possible at various companies that specialize in this. We have found a few for you.


The Glaravans company renews vintage caravans, while retaining the old look. Up to 60% of the old caravans are reused during the renovation. All caravans have one similarity: they have a story. This story is formed by returning characteristics and preserving unique elements.

In addition, they completely modernize and renew the chassis of the caravans, with both new axles and brakes.

More information about Glaravans can be found here.
