Not Mom's Caravan

BY Shannon Asher | July 2, 2018 | Feature Features

This mobile party wagon does it all.

Meet Bitsy (, a 1964 Cardinal Deluxe wood-trimmed caravan that has been beautifully restored into a one-of-a-kind mobile event site. Whether functioning as a photo booth, cocktail bar, DJ booth or lounge, Bitsy creates a unique addition to any social soiree. Owner and founder India Anderson is ecstatic about the adaptability of the van, which she commissioned through Canon City-based Retro Restoration. “The idea originated from my years of traveling. I grew an appreciation for seeing people in different cultures take something from their past and bring it back to life in today’s modern society. I’ve learned that it’s the little details that can make certain moments stand apart in our lives, and I wanted to create one of those little details of my own to share with people,” she says. Anderson collaborated with SocialLight to create Bitsy Booth, an enclosed custom photo station, providing snapshots and Boomerang videos to be shared instantly on social media platforms.

The multipurpose van is appealing for parties. “Bitsy wears many hats, and she can be anything you want her to be. She can virtually be transformed into any multifunctional operation that you see fit for your party,” she says. The vehicle’s versatility is essential for the indecisive party host who needs a cocktail bar for half the event and a photo booth for the remainder. With the ability to decorate the inside (and more importantly the outside), Bitsy serves as a mini venue that can be dressed up or stripped down. A DJ inside can inspire an outdoor nightclub around the van, where guests can dance under the stars. A pop-up shop creates a lounge area in front of the van. Bitsy is set to make her Aspen debut in mid-February, so be on the lookout for a van that’s a real party-starter.
