“Travel with your own hotel” was the main heading of the brochure for the camping trailer in 1957.
In the fifties, travelling by car was a novel idea made popular by an increasingly popular new phenomenon - the annual holiday. If, in addition, the car interior could convert into a bed for two, the car virtually sold itself.
Volvo Cars have a long tradition of offering cars that combine flexibility with versatility. Today they offer a camping table as an accessory for the V70, XC70 and XC90 models. In 1957, however, they were demonstrating their concern for family life.
On an even more flexible note, it was possible to convert from caravan to ordinary trailer. The price label showed 2700 SEK in 1957. No caravans seem to have survived, unfortunately!
