Berkeley Statesman caravan garden office

An excellent piece by friend of Shedworking Sharon Dale in the Yorkshire Post about the restoration of the last surviving Berkeley Statesman caravan by Tim Mitchinson in York. Here's a snippet:
When Tim Mitchinson rescued it 10 years ago, the last surviving Berkeley Statesman was a rotting hulk on the point of collapse. He bought it for £1 because he couldn’t bear to see it scrapped and, following a decision driven by what he calls “English eccentricity and insanity”, he and his friend Mark Cranfield embarked on a sensational £70,000 restoration. The vintage van, which was the first off the production line, is now for sale with RM English estate agents for £40,000. Tim reluctantly put it on the market to make way for an extension on the side of his home in York.
Tim believes that it would make an ideal garden office.
