Airstream Trailer

Airstream Trailer

The Airstream Trailers are arguably the most recognised vintage van of all time, so they had to be represented in our collection. It is my dream to own one of these beauties... especially the Airstream Bambi, so we had to feature this one!

Millard Caravans

Millard Caravans

If ever there were a ‘right time, right place’ success story, Millard would be it.

From humble beginnings in the 1940’s, Millard grew to be one of the ‘big five’ caravan manufacturers in Australia (which also included Viscount, Franklin, Chesney and Coronet for those interested!).

Founded by Jim Darlington and his son John, Millard is one of Australia’s oldest caravan brands, and it still plays a role in how Australians enjoy the caravan lifestyle today.

Otten Caravans

Otten Caravans

The Otten caravan is one of the oldest caravans to come out of the Netherlands, which is why it had to represent the Netherlands in our Iconic Collection. It's unusual shape certainly has my attention too!

Shasta Travel Trailer

Shasta Travel Trailer

From the moment I found this little Shasta Compact, I knew she had to be part of our Van Go journey. It was the 'wings' that caught my attention, as it is a feature of these trailers not seen on any other. As you will find out below, they are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts and we can see why!

SMV Caravans

SMV Caravans

Hailing from Sweden, SMV is the oldest caravan factory in Scandinavia. Founder Helmer Berglund originally built cars, but in 1948 decided that caravans were the way forward, thus SMV (Sörby Melaniska Verkstad) was born.

Sprite Caravans

Sprite Caravans

From a post in the armed forces to caravan designer may seem like a leap, however this is exactly what Sam Alper did in 1947. His brother Henry had a newly established caravan business – Alperson Products in the U.K. – that was to become Sprite Caravans, one of Britain’s most trusted and prolific caravan manufacturers.
