We offer a full restoration service for Vintage Showman's Wagons. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen will take the utmost care and attention to detail in restoring vintage living vans back to their former glory. We can build new Mollycroft rooflines, using existing timbers as patterns to exactly recreate the original, using reclaimed or sustainable timbers to get the closest match possible.

During initial strip-outs we will look closely to find evidence of the most original work, striving to re-create the wagon as it was when it left the makers yard whilst using modern techniques and adhesives to overcome the inherent issues that so many living vans suffered from. 

We can re-build windows, doors and furniture matching the original as closely as possible or offer new ideas to suit your own tastes as required. 

Using the latest insulation products and membranes we can make vintage wagons more comfortable, cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter without compromising on the style and aesthetic of the original design. Re-wiring and introducing plumbing, heating and climate control if required.

We have an extensive supply chain including suppliers of original fittings and fixtures, as well as our own growing collection of brassware and vintage electrical fittings. Our workshop currently enjoys good stocks of reclaimed mahogany as well as air-dried British hardwoods from windfall trees on local estates, allowing us to match many original timbers.

If you have a vintage living van we will arrange a site survey to assess the scope of works and offer an estimate on the costs required to carry out the works you may require - from a new roof or replacement windows to a complete refurbishment bringing it back to showroom condition. Call us to arrange a survey.
