Primarily producing caravans as well as motorhomes for the European market, Munsterland expanded its production facilities in the ’80s, as its products grew more and more popular.

Today, it continues the produce range of caravans and motorhomes that utilize long life as well as lightweight technology.

As a result, Vera can be seen to possess a strong cultural and historical background that could make owning her an even more exciting purchase, reports.

Small, yet adequate for anyone who values their privacy, Vera is a four-berth with convertible rear bunks and a parallel front lounge, along with lovely Cath Kidston curtains for privacy.

The interiors also include a blue and white diner-style floor, complete with a dining table.

On the other hand, the woodwork, including the inside table, have been decorated in colors of light blue, white, and pink.

Adding additional spark, are the alcoves, which have been covered by floral and polka-dot wallpaper.

Unfortunately, the heater and fridge have been removed from inside the caravan, in order to increase storage space.

There is also evidence of the caravan having been used in the past as certain scratches and other signs of wear and tear are present.

For instance, last year a certain amount of water leaked through the back window, resulting in a mark on the underside of the cushion pad. However, this appears to have only occurred that one time due to heavy rains.

Also, as a lightweight and compact caravan, Vera can be towed easily for camping trips or any other events that the new owners may have in mind.

Vera’s current owners have reluctantly decided to part with her as their time is now occupied by their new permanent shop.

They hope Vera finds a loving, new home.
