Hi All Maybe this request should be on the Classic site. My Doctor has stated he has a 11' 1971 Homelite caravan, and would like to know some history for this marque. Did some other company produce these . Over to you for comments. Cheers boblor Editorial comment: As discussed further down this thread, it emerged that the van Boblor was referring to was a 'Hi-lite' caravan. Don Ricardo

Perhaps the Doc is thinking of "Hi-Lite", a small poptop brand made in Victoria from the early 1970s...
The first models seem to have all been 11ft, then longer models were produced as the '70s proceeded.
Some info copied from our Classic forum...
"I,m after some info on a siddons van (Hi Lite) Built by Jack siddons of the sidchrome spanners fame"
In a 1975 caravan magazine I have, the following information about Hi-Lite is given: "HiLite, 31 Frankston Rd., Dandenong Vic. An excellent minivan that has found ready acceptance. Ideal for small car towing yet will sleep up to four people in comfort."
