    What do you think the bow top is made of. I am enjoying these photos.

      Thanks. I’ve been collecting all these images for some time and decided they’d be fun and informative to post. I think it’s a typical bowtop. Wooden wagon covered with layers of material over the bows. Probably wooded up the inside to above the bed level as well. Check out the book “English Gypsy Caravan” for details.
