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.

Yeah Paul’s is sharp looking…but your right about weight I bet lol…still wouldnt mind seein the inside.
It’s nice inside and very roomy with a kitchen. My photos came out very poorly inside and I never made it back to re-shoot them. I hope it will be included in Lloyd Kahn’s next book.
Are there any more pictures of Jack’s Wagon? I recall seeing pictures of it being built in your driveway, but I don’t seem able to find them now.
Here are the build photos:
Hopefully he’ll take some more when its done. I don’t have any interior shots right now.
very cool. I will send you some of photos of the one I am building when I get it finished. Mine is heavier with insulated walls and electricity.
I was wondering if you knew more about your friends vardo that was built on the car hauler?? Thanks great website learning lots
Do you mean this one?
If so, yes. Let me know if you need more details.
Nope sorry it’s the other one 14 feet long four wheels
Thanks any ways sorry for the confusion
Then it must be Paul’s vardo. His is pretty much what you see in the photos. A large, kite-shaped box with a bed and kitchen built in. It apparently weighs a LOT.
Does he have a website or other pictures ofthis particular vardo as I’m thinking something like it would make an excellent fishing hut
I don’t think so. It’s built more like a house or shed. Pretty straight forward.
Well thanks anyways
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.
