Written by Donald McDonald

Caravan takes a lighthearted look at friendship, age and holidays you should never have. Five best friends, nudging forty and hating it, take their first holiday together in a caravan. One of them brings along his new, and all-too-young girlfriend, who threatens the holiday from the start. In the confined space of a caravan, tensions rise and the laughs begin.
