Audrey, the caravan bar
Audrey the Caravan Bar’ is an original 1960’s Fisher Holivan caravan which has been in Lewis’ family since new.
In the late 1960’s, Audrey and Selwyn (Lewis’ Grandparents) bought the 6 berth Fisher caravan in Surrey. Straight out of the factory, Audrey and Selwyn towed the caravan home to South Wales in their Humbar Hawk car. The caravan was wheeled into the garage where it came out most summers for weekend breaks and holidays.
The caravan has produced some fantastic memories for three generations of the Jones family. It has been cherished and looked after all its life and has even been towed to Southern Spain in the 1970’s for a 3 week family holiday!
Lewis always loved the caravan and in its latter days of collecting a thick layer of dust in the garage, he realised that it would make the most amazing bar! Although he had to convince the family first…
That was that, Lewis spoke to his Grandma Audrey, along with his Dad and Uncle and the caravan was generously given to Lewis to give it a new lease of life.
After pumping up the old tyres up in order to move the Caravan, Lewis and his Dad rolled it out of the garage for the first time in 10 years. With a couple of new tyres, a check on the tow hitch and drum brakes, the caravan was ready to make yet another trip over the Severn bridge to Wiltshire and into Lewis’ workshop.
The first thing Lewis did when he sat in the caravan in the workshop was to name it. Of course, it had to be after Audrey, his Grandmother. So ‘Audrey the Caravan bar’ was born.
After sitting down and thinking “What have I got myself into?”, Lewis then started the renovation. With hours of hard work and a clear vision of the end product, Lewis worked on the renovation at every possible chance in order to achieve his dream bar.
With help from his friend who fitted the electrics, another friend who helped with the service hatch and his Mother who did all the reupholstery and curtains, Audrey the caravan bar was finished and ready to hit the open road!
