After several requests for information, here is my short list of inspirational sites found on the web. Culling the web for Vardo style so you don’t have to. I will try to morph this into it’s own page soon as a place to add more links as they become available.
Romany and Traditional Style
Great Historical Resource
Gypsy Vans by Roth. Beautiful traditional waggons with loads of information about types and styles. Amazing stuff here.
Nice, garden variety caravans. These make wonderful retreats and getaway spaces.
Solid, permanent and towable vardos from Windy Smithy.
Ingham & Fallon, restoration, new and used. The images alone make this page worthwhile.
Plan to spend some time on this website. Anvil Wagon Works in Livingston, Montana makes all types of traditional Chuckwagons, Sheepwagons, and Buggies. Lot’s of great photos inside and out.
This image links to their Sheep wagon page but there is so much more here. Serious craftsmen of all things traditional Wagon and Wheel related.
The Lazy AA Guest Ranch and Builders of towable Woolywagons.
Idaho Sheep Camp. This is the interior of just one of their many featured wagons. You can’t be more authentic than this. I want one! Pages of images to inspire the builder of tiny homes.
Old Western Wagons are builders of Sheep Wagons, Vardos, Freight Wagons, and other horse-drawn vehicles. Located in Seattle, Washington.
Engel’s Coach Shop Joliet, Montana. Master Wheelwright and makers of horse-drawn vehicles.
Plankbridge Shepherd Huts from Dorset, England. Traditional huts, not for long distance travel but fine for short moves. Nice designs.
Blackdown Shepherd Huts. Handcrafted in Somerset, England. Posh and spiffy little cabins with lots of style.
Everything you need to know about historic Shepherd Huts.
