Bertha – by Retro Caravan Renovations Gold Coast

Retro Caravans Gold Coast

Retro Caravans Renovations are a Gold Coast based caravan renovation and repair business. 

I love how they describe themselves on their website, so I’ll just let them do that here:

Our aim is not just to renovate a caravan, but to create a talking point that allows you to reconnect with the people around you, experience the outdoors, connect with family and friends, share stories and create memories that will last a lifetime.

We maintain the unique retro style of each vintage van we renovate whilst incorporating a designer coastal influence so you can experience the outdoors whilst still adding a touch of luxury to your camping adventures.

We’re featuring just one of their renovations; this is ‘Bertha’, a 16ft Millard caravan from the 1970’s. 

With a double bed at one end, and a convertible lounge/bunks at the other end, and she’s been renovated in a vintage boho style.

We’ve got some before and after comparisons so you can really see the transformation that took place.

You can see from these pictures that using a combination of Tasmanian Oak, rattan and spotted gum combined with a crisp white interior and clay accents, they’ve created a coastal, boho feel.

Those cute rattan cabinets, the oak and brass ladder and the dusty pink tiled back splash adds a feminine touch to the interior renovation. 

To retain the vintage vibe, they’ve used brass fixtures and fittings throughout combined with penny rounds on the dining table.
