Carlight Casalette (1979) Timewarp Condition

It all started in the early 1930’s when Robert ‘Bob’ Earl, a Sleaford auctioneer and an enthusiastic camper, built himself a trailer-tent and then asked a local wheelwright to build him a lightweight caravan. There was so much interest in his new caravan that he decided to go into manufacturing. The firm rapidly moved into the luxury end of the caravan market earning a reputation for producing the ‘Rolls Royce’ of caravans.

The Casetta, Cosmopolitan, Caribbean and Continent were all models from the 1960s but much updated for the 1970s and again it was the attention to quality and detail throughout the range that made Carlight the market leader. Fully double glazed sun-dim windows were adorned with pelmets and deeply upholstered, plush seating converted to extra comfortable bedding all backed up by latest heating, lighting and plumbing solutions

Milestones have always wanted to find a classic Carlight caravan but most are in tired condition with various issues including damp and panel damage BUT after eight years we have finally found an example that meets our exacting standards. With just one previous owner and very limited use the caravan has always been stored under cover and maintained fastidiously by the owner.

Our very cute “Casalette” dates from 1979 and proudly carries over the Carlight styling from the 1950’s – the retro look simply never goes out of fashion.
