The wonderful world of fibreglass and the MKP

Hi there! We are currently in the process of purchasing our first caravan and have fallen in love with the shape and styling of the MKP. They are extremely rare, particularly outside of The Netherlands but one has just come up for sale in England and now we are manically researching to ascertain whether it is the right one for us. We dont known much about fibreglass caravans, more familiar with metal panels, can someone kind give me a bit of background/ pros/cons on fibreglass. According to the owner the MKP it fits together like an Easter egg, again, anyone owned anything similar or better still, have you/do you own an MKP??? Any info would be AMAZING!!! Many thanks!!!!!

It looks like as with most fiberglass trailers (oops I mean Caravans) the main problem will be leaks and the resultant rotting floors and structure. Look carefully for evidence of deterioration of the wood and use your nose to find the smell of rotting wood and mildew.
I found one article on rebuilding one in NL.
MKP Caravan - Restauratie Grand V 1975
It seems that there are many different models that have been made.
It looks like there might be a lot of promise in the rebuild.
I guess it depends on the condition and if it needs work how much do you want to do?

Hi Charlie,

There is a page on Facebook for MKP, called MKP Caravan. Mostly in danish, but most people in european countries speak english, I'd just post there, and see if anyone from that group can help you get an MKP. I think they are a very nice caravan. I just imported a caravan to Canada from Holland, it took longer than anticipated but it was not complicated at all. Funny to pick up a trailer I had not seen before, my sister got it for me, and brought it to the shippers' warehouse for me.

So sorry that this is not a fiberglass travel trailer. But I think some might appreciate the beauty of these ;-)
