Hi Folks We have a Pooky .. build date unknown but probably1981. It's 14ft The van was built by Turner Boat Builders in Rhodesia. Does anyone else have one? As a starter for the reno I need to know about the under floor frame as it's sunk at the rear. The Pooky underneath has the framework completely enclosed so you can't just climb below and check it out. Would love to be in contact with anyone who knows anything about them. Cheers

Welcome to the forum and thanks for telling us about your Pooky van.
I can’t find any other mention of a Pooky van on the forum, but I fancy I’ve seen one somewhere, maybe Facebook. Could it have been yours? Have you posted on Facebook?
As you may be aware, this forum is focused on Australian vintage caravans. We have had a few people telling us about their African built caravans, but they have been based in Zimbabwe, South Africa or Europe. I don’t think many African built vans have made their way to Australia, if any.
Are you based in Australia, or are you in Zimbabwe? If you’re in Australia, do you know how your van arrived here?
(If you are based in Zimbabwe, there’s no problem with you being a member of the forum. We enjoy hearing from people around the world who have an interest in vintage caravans, so please do tell us more about your Pooky.)
