Trailer Caravan

A very suburban caravan with a nice potted plant on the table. The 'N' registration nails it firmly into 1973/4. The Corgi Juniors Caravan is almost an exact miniature of this one - right down to the gas bottles on the draw-bar. This caravan (490) was produced and sold as a single item from 1976 to 1980. The colour was always white with a broad blue stripe and a red draw-bar. Every last one of them from the Corgi Toys period has a pot plant on the table too. It was also part of a Mettoy era gift set paired with a Mercedes 240D as tow car (GS24) released in 1975.

It featured in a number of car and caravan sets in the post Mettoy era and with the Ford Escort Van as an AA or RAC recruitment office. Post Mettoy the pot plant is discarded
