Woody Caravans USA
PICS KALEB HOOK
When Woody Caravans began producing
cute little wooden reproduction vintage
caravans from their workshop on
Queensland’s Gold Coast in Australia,
brothers Morrie and Shane had no idea
at the time that their Woody Caravans
would end up making their way to
destinations all around the world.
Who is Woody Caravans?
Woody Caravans is a partnership between
two brothers Morrie and Shane Hook to
build vintage styled bondwood caravans
for a variety of different uses.
When did Woody Caravans start and why?
Woody Caravans started off five years ago.
Morrie and I had been doing restoration
work on vintage caravans and saw that
there was a potential market for brand
new caravans with the classic styling of
Australian built bondwood Caravans. The
decision to start Woody Caravans was
discussed one morning over morning tea
when we came to the conclusion that
between both of us we could do it with
minimal outside help.
What was your initial vision for Woody
Initially we thought Woody Caravans
could provide a styling of caravan that is
loved by all but with the added bonus of
knowing that everything from the ground
up is purpose built and brand new.
Has the business changed from your
We are still proud to say that our initial
concept and ideas have stayed true to
form and have only gathered speed with
most of our customers also becoming
great friends and our best marketing
tool. Having happy customers who love
their Woody Caravans and are just as
passionate as we are about what we do
has been a big contributor to our success.
I would also like to add that VTM editor
Lisa Mora has been a very big part of our
success here at Woody Caravans through
her magazines Vintage Caravan Magazine
and now with Vintage Trailer Magazine.
She has always been our biggest
supporter from our first phone call we
made to her all those years ago and we
have developed a friendship that we
can see lasting for lifetime. She is a truly
amazing woman and if anyone reading
this ever get the chance to meet her be
sure to say “THANK YOU” for everything
she has done not just for us, but many
other small business’s involved in the
vintage caravan/trailer scene.
