Antipodeans have a strange fascination with caravans, especially retro ones. They’ve been renovated to be travelling homes, sleepouts and offices. And now there’s one on the road in Auckland which has been turned into a mobile bar.
One Little Wagon is the brainchild of event stylist Claire Donaldson, who bought the 1974 caravan and spent six months commissioning experts to reline, insulate, rewire, plumb and repanel it. She’s decorated the 3.6m van with pieces from Flotsam & Jetsam and Father Rabbit and is now taking it to events around the city (it has already made appearances at several weddings, Taste of Auckland and Motuihe Island), where it serves as the bar.
It costs $1200 to hire and comes with two bar staff, glasses and ice.
