Manufacturer: Poole Industries Ltd 843-847 South Road, Clovelly Gardens, South Australia The following advertisement for Hi-Line caravans appeared in the 1958 and 1959 editions of the Adelaide Pink Pages directory.

At this point we have no further information about Hi-Line caravans, but this information has been posted to assist anyone looking for information about the Hi-Line brand.
Thanks to Raym for providing this information to be posted.
I have recently purchased a lovely old Hi-Line caravan from South Australia. It is very retro and the original receipt of purchase came with it and it was indeed made by Poole Industries Ltd., timber & Joinery specialists of 843 south Road Clovelly Gardens. the receipt is dated 12th October, 1960. I will post a photo when I find someone clever enough to help me. Frances.
