Pre-Worboys Sign

Considering that the popularity of caravans was still in relative infancy when the Worboys Report came out, it is perhaps unsurprising that no specific sign banning caravans seems to have existed. However, early signs banning specific vehicles seem to have been fairly common, and whilst very wordy indeed some of these 'Prohibited' signs may have included reference to trailers or similar.

Worboys Report Sign

The no towed caravan symbol doesn't even seem to be an original from the 1964 Worboys Report. The sign features the rear half of a car and a caravan within the red circle which denotes 'No'. The car looks vaguely like the back half of a MkIII Escort, suggesting it may have been quite a late addition, perhaps in 1975 (still before the MkIII Escort!) when a number of new signs were authorised.

Irish Sign

At present no specific sign design banning caravans has been identified.
