Manufactured by H Church & Son 7 Trafford Street, East Brunswick, Vic There is a bit of a puzzle about this caravan manufacturer. We have information about both 'Hill-n-dale', manufactured by H Church & Son in East Brunswick, and also 'Hilandale', built by George's Caravans in Thomastown (also Victoria) - click here
The info about Hill-n-dale - see below - dates from 1956, while all the info about Hilandale dates from 1960 onwards. The question is did George's Caravans take over Hill-n-dale from the Churches and jazz up the name for the 60's? Or were they two different brands from two different manufacturers who just happened to choose similar brand names?
