The Caravan of Gaulier

Denis Fidelin posted a picture of his caravan on the Tiny House Blog’s facebook page and I have been wanting to do a post on it.

I tried to communicate with Denis but never heard back from him. So I took the next step and have used google to translate his web page and will share his caravan with you. Located in France, you can learn more about it at his web site.

The Caravan of Gaulier is installed in an isolated part of our area. You wake up in the heart of the vineyard transect with one vision for the vines to the eye and the village and its church Chavagnes below.

Find the charm and authenticity of wooden caravans of yesteryear and experience the magic of bohemian adventure in the heart of Anjou wine …..

Luxuriously furnished and equipped with a premium comfort, our caravan will meet the most demanding. As to the hotel, the beds are made upon arrival. The bathroom, honey color, is lined with plush towels and small hospitality products. In the kitchen you find a maintenance kit.

We recommend you our hearty breakfast served at your choice in the trailer, and even our gourmet basket consisting of gourmet local products as a rustic dinner. We will also, at your request, reserve a table in one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

Our caravan holiday home (up to 4 people) are equipped with:

  • bathroom with shower and toilet
  • kitchen complete with crockery for 4 people
  • fridge with freezer compartment
  • 2 electric rings
  • Premium bedding (beds made on arrival)
  • towels
  • flatscreen TV
  • garden furniture with barbecue
  • coffeemaker, toaster and electric kettle

If you are headed to France you might want to make this one of your stops as you explore the country. To make reservations and to learn more be sure and visit The Caravan of Gaulier website.

    Sorry Denis, I just figured since I never heard back from you that you did not, I’ll edit that part 🙂

I am so madly in love with that floorplan. Oh my goodness! It’s gorgeous!

    I’m with Lellewynn; this floor plan is TDF!!! This is great for Seniors who can’t climb ladders. And it is so esthetically pleasing in its simplicity and grace. Just love it! Can we have more pics of the bathroom? and from the back looking down to the front door? Thank you!

How do we get the plans to this amazing caravan??

    Kent Griswold - January 7, 2010 Reply

    Hi Charity – I am trying to find out from Denis if plans are available and who built the caravan for them. I’ll let everyone know as soon as I know.

Wow- everything is so nicely designed! The wood is warm and inviting, there seems to be good storage, and it’s just pretty. I want to build one of these.
Thank you for sharing!

What an inspiration, even for my “Hobbitat” cabin in the mountains. I agree, the floorplan is AWESOME!

Helena Mattsson - January 8, 2010 Reply

I love it, thanks for some more input to my own plans…..this was very nice and airy

Hi Kent I would like the plans as well. I love the floor plan. Thanks for sharing it here.

Diana Friley - September 8, 2010 Reply

Did you ever get the plans? This is fabulous.

    Kent Griswold - September 8, 2010 Reply

    No, I have not been able to, I will contact him again and see if it is possible.

      Susan - November 13, 2011 Reply

      were you able to get information for the plans for this roulette?

        Kent Griswold - November 13, 2011 Reply

        No Susan, I have not been able to get any plans unfortunately!

          Lori - December 27, 2013 Reply

          This plan looks a LOT like SoCal Cottages. Same look and feel. You can probably get some ideas from their Facebook page or website. I was thinking of buying one but when I looked them up in the BBB, they didn’t have much good to say about them which made me nervous. Their work looks great though so I’m very torn.

          This is a gorgeous one!

While following this blog for about two years, I have seen many designs of tiny dwellings on trailer beds. I would be interesting and possibly helpful to see a posting that describes the typical US “highway legal” requirements for such trailer-like solutions. Things like; lights, brakes, wheel covering, license, width-limits, height-limits, weight-limits, etc.

Road rules in France may be very different than the US and Canada.

Some info on how all manner of tiny dewllings are taxed would also be interesting to read.

What an inspirational treasure!
J’adore les Roulottes!
Denis, Your caravan is magnificent.
Kent, Thanks for sharing it with those of us who might never have a chance to visit it in France 🙂

The only thing better looking than the trailer is the view!

Beautifuly done all the way around.

Otmar - December 27, 2013 Reply

In the past when I’ve studied these I noticed the width is around 10 feet, much wider than the typical 8 foot trailer here in the states. I think the extra width helps the floor plan seem open. Many people in the USA don’t realize that it’s easy to get a permit to tow a 10′ wide trailer so as long as is is mostly stationary the width is not a problem.
I’m in Oregon and also would like one of these. I wonder where one could buy a trailer base?

Paula - April 9, 2015 Reply
