Tell us more about your camping experiences. Do you camp with a group of people, with other eggs? And is the inside of your Carmen as beautiful as the outside?
Hi again Pam. To me it started with the classic-car hobby. Going on car- meetings and exhibitions i also saw people camping with gear from the time their cars were build. The most common eggs here is smv and opio, as seen on the pic from Andrew. They are constructed from painted alu on a wooden frame. They often leak, and thad leads to bad air inside. I am sensetive to smells and also camp which two small kids so I wanted a non-leaking caravan. There are some nice historical fiberglass-models as well but they mostly are not so egg-shaped, if you know what i mean..
I wanted a egg! I got to know a man who was very devoted to gather material and info on historical camping, since he was planning a camping museum. He had a lot of caravans and also a "Carmen" and it was not only the right material, i also loved the shape.(As a "car nerd" i was looking for something to match the lines of the old citroens.) I started looking for this specific model. Thanks to internet i found one, it was an old add in some historical ford-club, but i took a chance and called him. The wagon was still there and it was possible to buy it. It was not in good shape, it was very, very blue, but I bought it. Fixed the most importent stuff but it needs more work(lots of projects...) I use it for shorter trips on weekends and car-meatings. Sometimes I work in other cities and then I use it just for accommodation. Glad you liked it. S

Nice setup Staffan,
Love the tow vehicle!

My dad had a ds19 back in ~1966. Fun times playing with the suspension ( not so much for my dad ;-)
