More Vardos

Here are a couple new Vardos found in the Arizona desert this February.

Jack’s wagon, nearly complete inside.  I helped him build the main structure in my driveway last summer and he has been trimming it out ever since.  It essentially the same design as mine (with a few logical improvements) and lengthened by two feet.

The portholes were purchased from a ship salvage company and add a cool nautical look.  This one is ten feet long (3 m) and feels very spacious inside.

Paul’s wagon is a beauty but I suspect weighs quite a bit.  The tandem trailer alone might outweigh my little rig.  This one is 14 feet (4.25 m) long and could host a small dance party inside.

The color scheme and interesting details really make this one stand out in the crowd.

    Does he have a website or other pictures ofthis particular vardo as I’m thinking something like it would make an excellent fishing hut

    when you say it weighs A LOT… what does that mean??? 3000 lbs? more/less.

      That would probably be a good guess but there are so many variables, including the stuff inside, that it would have to be weighed to be sure. If the vehicle pulls it without a problem, then it weighs little enough I guess.
