There was indeed a Travelo made in the US by Raymond Products Co. of Saginaw Michigan. Travelos were produced from 1934-1986. Early models were masonite sided and had a treated canvas roof so very few pre-WWII examples still exist. I own a 1950 Travelo that is aircraft grade aluminium clad. There is no relationship between the Australian Travelo and the American Travelo except the name.
