Hi just found this forum and while looking for info on a caravan that i am re building i found this posting for Crestacraft New Zealand from Nov 1967 until 1972 . There where 9 staff working in the caravan shop while i do not remember this van as i think it was built before i started i seem to remember the cladding having crease along the length at around 150mm which when fixed on the van formed a bulge and gave the panel some shape and looked a lot better than the flat panel. While i was there we had a visit from some over seas builders who told us that our vans where among the best in the world and that they would consider them as the Rolls Royce of vans. I now live in Port Macquarie NSW and love to know how this van is going.
Wow how amazing to "talk" to someone who knows Crestacraft. We have been restoring her on and off now for quite some time and I'm afraid to say still have a long way to go. We have had no luck discovering her age and we wondered what year or years you worked for Crestacraft. Look forward to your reply, and will try to find some more recent photos to post. Good luck with your van rebuilding. Cheers Phil and Louise
