A vardo wagon, van, living wagon, and caravan is a traditional horse-drawn tiny house on wheels that is used by the British Romani people as their home. These tiny houses on wheels possess a chimney, which is usually thought of as being highly decorated, brightly painted, intricately carved, and even gilded. The British Romani tradition of the vardo wagon is seen as a high cultural point of both artistic design and also a masterpiece of woodcrafters art. The heydey of the living wagon and gypsy tiny house on wheels lasted for about 70 years, from the mid-1800s through to the first two decades of the twentieth century. The tiny house on wheels is used for year-around living today; they are shown at the Romanichal (British Romani) horse fairs that are held throughout the year, the best known of which is the Appleby Horse Fair.
A gypsy vardo's design includes large wheels that are set outside of the body, with sides that slope outward considerably as they rise toward the eaves. Beyond this characteristic, the six types of gypsy caravans differ in size, shape, placement of the wheels relative to the bed, where they are made, and the maker. The roofs of the bow-top gypsy wagon and open-lot types of tiny houses on wheels are canvas stretched over curved wooden frames; the others are roofed in wood. By the mid-1800s, the designs of the gypsy tiny houses on wheels were almost entirely standardized, with some of the common features of all types. The door is almost always in the front of the unique small house plan. The gypsy wagon's interior is typically outfitted with built-in seats, a wardrobe, cabinets, bunks in the rear of the caravan, a glass-fronted china cabinet, and a chest of drawers. There are windows on the left side and the rear. Some types of vardo wagons have clerestories which let in light and air. A bracket for an oil lamp is mounted on the chest of drawers opposite the fireplace; the chest's top functions as a table.
