The former The Block contestants Michael and Carlene Duffy have secured the sale of their latest project — a vintage caravan dubbed Bumblebee.

It sold prior to its recent Ray White auction for $24,000.

Apparently, a few years back they ditched their damp tent camping instead to buy some wheels.

The experienced renovators and designers have now renovated four vintage caravans.

Found on Gumtree, Bumblebee is a 3.6m-long renovated vintage Franklin caravan with single axle.

There are rattan and oak cabinets and an on-board water system.

The dining table converts to a bed.

The husband and wife team were contestants on the Melbourne series of The Block Glasshouse in 2014 when they made just $10,000 profit, well behind brothers Simon and Shannon Vos on $435,000.

The couple ­remain on the Gold Coast in the semi-rural Tallebudgera. They were 27 when they purchased the home which is still a project nine years on.

The duo who run Cedar + Suede, a home design and construction service, are hosts of home renovation and lifestyle shows, Ready Set Reno and Open Homes Australia.
