c1970 CARLITE CASALETTE S TWO BERTH CARAVAN

A stunning two berth icon; freshly restored; cocktail cabinet; new upholstery; very chic; compact and lightweight; suitable for 1600cc upwards

Thought to date from the early '70s, this delightful Carlite Casalette would have been the envy of every other caravanner on the pitch. Top of the range, and with a strong following today, the Carlite was the Rolls-Royce of caravans.

This fine example spent most of its life in dry storage, being discovered by the vendor 18 months ago. Since then, he and his partner have done a splendid job refreshing the caravan, for it was already in very solid and sound condition.

They have re-buttoned the original cushions, fitted hand-made curtains, wall-papered the bathroom and kitchen area, painted it throughout and replaced the lino flooring as well as the laminate in the bathroom and kitchen.

The gas lamps are in working order, the flexi gas pipes are new and the gas hob, grill and oven are all functional - and spotless! The fridge is in working order and the outside lights have been rewired. It even has its hidden cocktail cabinet up front complete with 6 original glasses.

The chassis has been overhauled and repainted and the original jack and wheelbrace are still present. The four corner jacks are ready greased for use (with their ingenious quick release) and it is basically all ready to go.

It comes with an original orange canvas awning by Harrison (leaflet on file) with all the poles and in excellent condition. There is also an original Carlite manual, a later Carlite accessories brochure and even the original Practical Caravan Towing Weight Calculator.

Light enough to tow by most classics...say 1600cc upwards, it would look superb behind your Cortina, Minx or Corsair on the way to your weekend away.
