    WOW !!
    But then I look at that and I know why I thought motorhoming was not for me all those years ago.

    Yes, they were indeed ahead of their time, but look at a caravan from the 70's..

    I have often wondered why, way back in the good old bad old days, motor caravan builders did not use the innovative designs and ideas implemented in the caravans of the era..

    Yes, some of them did and some took on a few of the better ideas, but the over all comfort and appointment in motor homes always seemed galaxies behind ..

    Paralanian eh? I haven't seen one of those for years.

    As a matter of interest - a little quizz - does anyone out there know how it became named the 'Paralanean'?

    My late father built 2 vans on Panel van/minbuses. His last conversion was on an Austin J2, then he bought a boat.

    That brings back memories,I did a home conversion to a diesel J2,derv was about 1/2 the cost of petrol then.My conversion boosted a full size sink which was great for bathing the baby. The baby`s 36 now !:Laughing:

    Bradford based Paralanian produced luxury coachbuilt motorhomes in the late 1950s in its Parry Lane works (hence the name). .
