We enjoyed many sauna sessions in the legendary Verhagen’s sauna caravan. Which can be seen also on this site. Unfortunately after a while this wonderful sauna was sold and we soon missed it’s hot and steamy climate. This gave me the motivation to build a new one. So, with all lot of experience and lessons learned by Verhagen, I rebuild this little dutch old-timer caravan dated into a real wood-burning sauna. After many creative ideas and lots of building fun this little caravan was ready for it’s second life in october 2009. And we enjoy it now, as much as we can!
