Every van has a story to tell, and Ginger is no different. So come have a drink with me, let's talk a while and share some banter. I like to party, but I'm old school you see. I'm the real deal. I hope we can share a laugh some time. I've got a lot to offer.

Ginger is a 1953 built Bondwood Caravan but she's had a hard life. Among other things, she was left to rot severeley until brought back to life by a retired boat builder. Purchased in 2011, she was given some new rewiring with the intent to caravan, but failing that was put up for sale in 2015. It was that same year, Katie fulfilled a dream of owning a vintage caravan and starting up a mobile bar/cafe. It was late on a Sunday night that Katie found the van and raced in to tell her sleeping husband. The next morning, they left for a road trip to Byron Bay to check this van out. The van was named before it was repainted in its signature 'Ginger'', a name that is reflected in both food and beverages, but was of the 50's era. And of course, Katie knew she was female! With just a few minor alterations; the desire to keep her original was strong, she was ready to roll (literally).

"I just wanted to thank you. You guys were awesome and we had so many compliments, not only about your van but your personalities and how you got along with our guests. Rick and I are so glad we booked you guys to cater our wedding as it made a huge difference to our day." Rick and Kaycee Tierney

“Matt and I would like to sincerely thank Katie and the Ginger van for going above and beyond our expectations to help create a fabulous evening with our friends and family for our engagement party. All the guests were raving about how great the coffee was, the fact they could personally remember drink orders and the friendly service that was provided. We highly recommend and even our guests have begun to request we have the Ginger Van at our wedding.” Amy
