The Official Launch of The Cute Caravan Company

The Official Launch of The Cute Caravan Company

The official launch of The Cute Caravan Company and the introduction of Lilli was held at the Ray White Offices on Waiheke Island.

Lilli is small, cute and fitted perfectly (JUST) in the most amazing offices on Waiheke. We all had such a great evening with lovely vendors, friends and locals coming to have a look at Lilli the portable bar for hire in action.

Lilli’s Life So Far……..

Lilli’s Life So Far……..

Lilli’s life started as a normal 1968 caravan. She was then put in storage for 20 years before she became a portable bar hire Auckland. So sad. And she was green…..

The previous owner then bought her and transformed her to make her match his truck… Lucky for us..

We found her on Trade Me and took a little drive to Wanganui to see her. It was love at first sight.

She took a little trip to her new home on Waiheke Island.


Then she got gutted and transformed….

Everything has to measured to the mm and measured again and again to ensure its perfect.





So much hard work and sweat has gone into making Lilli what she is today, in fact more than you can imagine.

And a few proud smiles as she comes along nicely too…..



Interior going in. Look at those lovely benches. IMG_3054



To what she is TODAY… a beautiful portable bar hire Auckland. Keep a look out for her launch event and more detailed pics…
