Inside as seen from the door
My husband and I were out and about yesterday, a road trip that included several stops at antique and collectible shops - just browsing, as you never know what you might find. As it turns out we didn't purchase anything but we DID find this Gypsy wagon, aka vardo.
The owner told us that he has built three wagons and sold two, and he very graciously let me step inside to take photos.
On the right (moving from front to back and hidden by cabinets) is a refrigerator, sink and seat for one. On the left a longer seat over storage. In the space you cannot see on the left is a wood stove.
Closer look at the bed
I was impressed by how efficient this wagon is. Apparently modern RVs have been modeled after the originals, which were first built in the early 1800s.
As you can see in the first photo, the bed is over a storage area and has a ladder up to it.
Would you believe the owner stayed in this wagon during the winter? This wagon must be very well insulated!
Outside as seen from the back
The outside of this wagon is not as flashy as I have seen in photos of older versions. And this one is up on blocks, not on wheels.
Side windows and coloured glass at the top of the wagon
