I can see your next career move will be designing real caravans. Have you looked at any caravan magazines for the layouts for ideas. We've had several touring caravans over the last thirty years and I always ask the salesman if they have every really been caravanning with a young family. I don't think some of the designers have. They don't seem to work out that when you put the kids to bed you have to have somewhere else to sit and there's hardly any room for plating up meals etc.. Good luck and have fun!

I am sure with your amazing imagination you could come up with a static caravan! it would be an amazing project with all the mini stash, resin folk, Beasty and Conan you have to hand! I once stayed in one of these caravans in Blackpool for a week quite a few years back now, Marton Mere I think it was called. It was a very last minute thing 3 sister-in-laws and their families were going and one familly pulled out at the last minute due to a bereavement and we went in their place! It was fun and the boys loved the holiday park. It was the only holiday in England I ever had and the folk were so amazing to us! All these Hebrideans amongst all these Lancashire folk. It was a real laugh! and the fish and chips were as good as Stornoway's but not the black pudding! Ours is world famous. I might send you one if you like Su. xx

I have looked at a few images on net and found some great black/chome kitchens.......i'm surprised how 'modern' i am really..always loved the olde worldy stuff,beams and bullseyes,stone,low ceilings,open fires,wood carving etc..but the modern(sterile..?) designs have been grabbing me too....never too late to change...

Su... a caravan is a great idea... but a boat is really original!!! And you´re an original and super-creative woman!!!

If it helps for boat ideas (we're probably going to be doing a mini version of our boat at some point) you can get some great ideas of hull shapes from some narrowboat kits.

Riverside Models
Orion Moulding's - NARROW BOATS

If it's a longer narrowboat than 29 feet, you'd have no problem getting everything you were intending in there. 45 feet upwards would do what you'd wanted. 55 feet and you can get a mini-dining area in there as well
