The adorable 'Bumblebee' caravan will go to auction later this month at Ray White New Farm Auction Under the Stars.

* 24th March 2019 *
Update from Michael & Carlene:  "We have officially SOLD
ourlil ray of sunshine, Bumblebee which is very exciting for us and very very exciting for B.B’s new owners. Less exciting for those who missed out but on the upside there WILL be more vans and our next one will contain bunks for those with lil monkeys so stay tuned, friends."

The couple, parents to Paddy and Stella, admit they have been “long time campers” and began renovating their first caravan as a way to slow their pace of life down, and reconnect as a family.
