Hi Kenny, The top one is a late 50s Viscount ( of course) second looks like a Viscount Ambassador and the bottom one a nice bondwood but no idea of brand. Cheers hughdeany
Hi Kenny and Hughdeany,
The first photo is a 1960 Viscount as indicated by the painted waist stripe and shape of the bulkhead over the front windows. The 1959 Viscounts had the wrap around windows like this one, but didn't have the waist stripe.
And yes that is 'Viscount' on the side above the window. It was a Viscount habit for a number of years in the 50's and early 60's and very helpful for caravan sleuths too!
Hi Don, Going to disagree with you on the Millard,the flat part of the front where the window is is too small,and only fits a skinny window,the front bottom section is too high,and the top roll looks very round,just like home made vans were built as copies. Cheers hughdeany

Yes, I see and had considered all those points. It's difficult to compare two photos on different screens, but I'm still leaning towards my diagnosis!
Regarding the window, I can see that the outline of the window in Kenny's photo seems too small, but if you take into account that (as it seems to me) the actual window frame and glass are missing from the van, then that would explain what appears like a smaller opening in the wall. When I compared the two vans and considered how the frame would fit, it seemed to me they'd look the same, but as I said it is difficult to compare two photos...so maybe you're right (as usual ).
Hi Kenny, The top one looks like an early 60 s bondwood,either Lylack or Huntsman,the second no idea but I see it has a fixed kitchen window like Globetrotters had,and the bottom is a17 ft Coronet about 1969-70. Cheers hughdeany
