BBC 1's Inside Out has found one man in Blyth, Northumberland, who runs a business restoring and painting wagons for gypsies.
The mesmerizing world of the gypsy has gripped the UK after the documentary series 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' took the country by storm.
John Greenwood, or Yorkie as he is known as, is said to be the best wagon painter in the country with people from all over the UK bringing their wagons to Yorkie's yard.
He has been working on this 105-year-old wagon which was previously owned by Romany horse dealer William Nicholson - 67 years ago he lived in it until his superstitious father sold it after he fell out of it when he was seven-years-old.
The wagons are hand-carved and ornately painted with traditional symbols. Paintings would often include horses, lions, birds, floral designs, and vinework.
A traditional gypsy wagon is pulled by a plodding horse and there are around six different types of wagon. In larger wagons there would be a cast iron stove for cooking and heating.
Life on the road was tough for gypsies and in the past their wagons weren't cherished - they were practical.
In the modern day, there is a new breed of collector, gypsies with money to spend on nostalgia and Yorkie's clients only want the best with wagons being flashier than ever before.
A caravan can take up to a year to paint and although they're rarely lived in now, they're highly sought after by gypsies who are willing to pay good money for them.
Their horse drawn carriages are now somewhat of a collectors item as a way to remember their roots - but this one has been built from scratch.
John isn't a gypsy himself but he has always been fond of wagons and horses - so his job is the perfect career for him. You can find out more about this story on Inside Out on Monday, 14 February at 7.30pm on BBC1.
