That's an open ended question! Carlight are considered as one make. But do you mean

modern or older non-existent caravans?

Elddis were re badging some models as Carlights last I heard that does not make them prestige! :rolleyes:

If you define prestige as expensive, then -Carlight (built by hand at Sleaford), Vanmaster and Inos are probably the three most expensive caravans.

I was thinking like Rolls Royce for cars, Halberg Rassey for sailing boats that sort of thing, something with a higher quality finish, i have a swift van and whilst I've no complaints there must be a mark thats more highly regarded than others.

They might be highly regarded but doesn't mean they are any better!! Remember it's a caravan not a Rolls Royce!

Sadly no van anymore but 35 years was a good run

I am a little suspicious of Carlight at the moment, I pass the Brompton on Swale "depot" regularly and have twice called in for a look at the models, I'm not impressed by the ready to buy vans that are there, in fact they look like they've been built for a different part of our community. There also seems to be an increasing number of pre-built vans in the "depot". The place it's self does little to inspire confidence, sorry to say the same goes for the gentleman running the place. I may call in at the factory the next time I'm down that way see if that reboots my opinion. Is any body going to put me straight on these impressions.

Finnish Solifer and Swedish Kabe, Cabby and Polar are probably the best finished caravans and the prices reflect it :o .

in my opinion, that is exactly the status I would give to the three I have suggested but I would grade them (highest to lowest) Inos, Vanmaster, Carlight.
