Hi Melanie. If it hasn't been removed, the number is behind the side bunk, over the wheelarch area. Some people removed them so the trailer couldnt be dated !

I'm trying to trace my gypsy origins with a hope of finding and contacting and getting to know my gypsy family.
The last known traveller was my great grandad whom i know as Jonny Harper.
I know of only two of his daugters Winnie Harper i dont know her married name and his other daughter Nellie Harper my grand mother which is were my name Neil comes from.
My Grand mother Married and became Nellie Parker and she Later remarried and became known has Nellie Andrews.
I know that the Harpers had connections to heath common in wakefield and that Jonny Harper owned a farm in Briestfield near Wakefield i aslo know tha Jonney had a brother who became a music hall entertainer and i'm lead to believe that his stage name was Samuel Sug.
Any information would be greatfully recieved.

karen.hello,i have rebuilt two westmorland stars and one vickers,in my experience the door hinges can be replaced with similar hinges which would have been used at that time being th 1970s,early landrover rear door hinges would be similar and i used some of these on my westmorland star and looks as close to the originals.the other idea is to go to a metal foundry and get the originals rmade,but would be very expensive.good luck.
Hi, does anyone know where i can get door hinges for an old portmaster please? Need to get my door back on asap!!!!
Thanks. please email me on email@example.com if you do.
We chatted some years ago..I just looked up your brilliant site..I take it you have suffered a loss.. I,m sorry for this

Thanks to the people who have posted on here, I havent been on for a while. So to answer some of the questions. To get photos on here you need to email or post them to me to put on.
The trailers/motors that are 'for sale' are adverts but not sold by me so I cant answer questions about them, contact the owner. Some of the stuff is probably sold but I dont know unless Im told !!
If anyone wants to be put in touch with somebody please email me, if I can help I will but I dont put anyones personal details on here unless asked to.
Hope to get some new stuff on the site soon its been quiet for a while now........

Hi, thanks for collecting all the pics on this site, me n the mrs often come here for a look at other peoples pride n joy!. I was wondering if anyone could point me towards someone who could supply replacement cut glass mirror for an 80s buccaneer. I also have a marshall supreme which needs new worksurface I need some matching formica for it, again any ideas? cheers
hi Brian and Pat. Great to hear from you........the rodeo and c&w music event sounds great, wish we were there.!! Ive been at home a few weeks now so need to go away........Birmingham here I come LOL.
All the best to you both. Ken.
Ken and the family, just a line from me and Pat in Texas to say 'Hi y'aal' from the Lone Star State. Ken, you've made this site fantastic, it's better than ever.
It's rodeo time at the moment in Houston. Dozens of ranchers and cowboys and cow girls ride horses and drive covered wagons and mule carts in to Houston before the Rodeo starts. Most of them stop over in a big park. It lasts 3 weeks and there's lots of rodeo events and country and western singers and a good time to be had. I bet most Travellers would love it.
Best wishes, Brian and Pat.
hi, fantastic web site. we are in the middle of renovating a 1984 buccaneer and an original nuvardo year unknown but she has perspex windows and we hope some one can tell us where to get replacement window blinds for both these trailers as they are all missing. we hope to be posting photosdsoon as we,re also living in a mint 1994 roma special. many thanks for great web site. andy and haze.
