Kerivan, Kerivan, wherefore art Thou, Kerivan??

The tireless search continues.....I had been reading over some of my previous posts when I stumbled upon a lovely quote from way back in December 2011 when Mr D had announced that he was happy for me to finally buy that Vintage Van of my dreams and my words of wisdom were "half the fun will be in the looking".  What the heck were you thinking?? It has become more of a frustration than a pleasure as one van after another proves not to be "the one". 

Sadly us Queenslanders are not spoilt for choice in the VV department whereas if I lived in Victoria or South Australia I'd have already bought, renovated and be living the dream in my own van.  My search sees me on eBay, Trading Post, Gumtree and Caravan and Camping Sales....multiple times a day.  I have even joined a VV forum where all day every day people talk vans pre 1970.


If I think too hard about it I guess I'm a little fussy with my check list.....so best not to think too hard. It can't be TOO BIG.....


or too small.....


 


It can be "bubble" shaped....



 
(more of a "dot" than a bubble!)

Or "toaster" shaped.....





In my wildest dreams I would own a Shasta!!! Love a bit of fin.....and the name Shasta...




Or at a pinch I'd gladly superglue these two sides together!




                                                                            ...very gladly actually...

I would happily have neutral and sophisticated....


Frou frou...




                                                                                         .....or not....

Gypsy??

 
 


or my fave red and turquoise....



 


So all I can do is soldier on and hope that one day she will be sitting somewhere unexpected, waiting just for me.  Let's hope this post has distracted you enough that you don't notice I haven't posted since October....I have no excuses.....

Thanks Claire, your lovely vans have given me endless amounts of viewing pleasure! Rosezeeta I'd love to see some pics of your van. Is it "Binky" by name or is that the brand of van?
