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.
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!
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!
