I was 22 years old, married with one child, when I bought my first caravan and moved to Wateruintjiesvlei caravanpark just outside Paarl. We enjoyed it so much that the second child was born in Paarl hospital a year later. It felt like paradise under the pine trees with squirrels visiting the caravan regularly as we adapted quickly to the permanent camping lifestyle.

The year: 1973

Make: Sprite Cavalier 16'

Price: R1,900.00  (One thousand nine hundred)

As you can see I was very proud of my new home on wheels, bought cash by selling all our furniture.

After a few years me moved to Pretoria where we stayed at Joos Bekker near the CBD while looking around for a more suitable long term stay which we found at Wawiel Caravan Park, 20 km away from the CBD where I worked. I eventually sold the van for R1,000.00 when we moved away to a live-in job at a group of motels.
