I’m aiming to document the restoration of our 1980’s CI Sprite 400 caravan, mostly for my benefit but also maybe that others can take inspiration and restore theirs. What can you expect from this blog? Well some general ramblings on my thoughts on restoring a 1980’s caravan. I’ll try to document what I’ve done as I go along with plenty of pictures and links to products/sites I’ve found useful, or not.
It’s been a long time in between purchasing it (£310 on eBay back in 2016), starting to strip it (that part was quick!) and then actually doing anything on it.
For 3 years it was stored in my old works yard, mostly just sat there. Every now and again I’d go out and look at it with good intentions but never seemed to quite make the time for it.
Revently moved jobs which forced me to move it (luckily it still moved!!) and am now paying for storage which has now prompted me to work on it again as I’m paying for storing something we can’t use.
It would be lovely to be able to get out in it this year (if we’re allowed to after the lockdown from Covid-19 has ended that is!) so I need to get the CAD work finalised and start building the furniture.
