Hi Steve,Your van is a Roma.They made vans for Blue Horizon,Glenlee,Pedigree,and probably a few others that I have forgotten about!That model was touted as a windcheating design when most other vans of the time had top rolls(the protruding bump above the front windows)If you can find an old Roma ad from their Burke rd Camberwell address,you can see a whole row of them from 10ft to 18.6 Hope this has been of some help to you.

Hello again I've just spoken to Tony from Roma caravans, and he remembers this model with the moustache looking V above the front windows and says its a "1967 model (coincidentally so am I ) Roma Glenlee" he is going to look for the old ad that hughdeani mentioned and forward that and any other info on to me which is great news. Also as hughdeani mentioned it was the first of the "windcheating" models. ;D ;D ;D... thanks for the help cobber and hughdeani, who knows how much longer it would have taken to get this far on my own?

14 ft Glenlee caravan, listed on Ebuy in June 2012:
Based on Hughdeani's comments quoted above, this van would have been built by Roma and sold under the Glenlee name. However, at this point we haven't seen any pics on the forum of a Roma branded van of the same design, and using the same cladding.
