Our 1968 Lilliput Caravan 'Lilli' has been transformed into a bar for hire (a caravan bar!) for weddings and special events. All you need to do is supply the drinks and we supply the caravan bar, the staff, and all the trimmings, including premium crystal glassware. We’ll even dress her up for you! Worried about the cost? Lilli is actually more cost and time effective than setting up your own trestle and barrel bar. Don’t quite believe it? Check out our comparison.
We absolutely love a good wine barrel bar and there’s definitely a place for one (or two!), however we thought we would give you a comparison between the costs of hiring Lilli and either a barrel bar or trestle table bar.
The costs include:
TOTAL: $1,148 (plus gst)
And you’ll have to add on delivery……and this doesn’t include all the time spent organising everything! (Time is money remember!)
Or...you can hire Lilli, the Caravan Bar, with all her WOW factor for just $1,250 (plus gst) up until April 2016!
This includes absolutely everything you’ll need:
Contact us today if you’d like to have Lilli at your wedding or engagement party! Whether you’re planning a wedding, an event, a private party or a corporate event, we will go anywhere Lilli can fit. She’s super cute and friendly and the perfect addition to your special occasion. There are still some dates available for the 2015/2016 wedding season, so get in quick!
The Cute Caravan Company is a father and daughter owned business based on Waiheke, supporting Waiheke and the mainland. Sophia from Coco Lily Events and New Zealand Wedding Fairs is the main organisational person, while Paul is the “go to" guy for delivery, pick up, upkeep and anything that needs fixing. The name for our company was partly determined by the comments we were receiving. Pretty much everyone’s response when they saw Lilli was along the lines of: “She’s so cute!”
“We had been looking for ages for a caravan to convert into a mobile bar,” says Paul. “We saw this one for sale and knew this was going to be the one. After being in storage for 20 years, it was purchased and fully renovated by a company in Wanganui. That’s when we bought it. I demolished over half of the renovated inside and converted it into stunning bar, and at the same time keeping the original look.”
Rather than serving drinks from a standard trestle table, we wanted to create an equivalent that had the WOW factor. It really doesn’t get much better than Lilli!

Does the band take requests? Do you have to provide them with dinner? Can the bride sing a song?
