I have seen the occasional photo of pre-war caravans here in Australia, but they looked, and probably were, very home-made. Using an axle and 28-inch artillery wheels sourced from a derelict car, they were anything but elegant or stylish. I doubt that we had any commercial production of caravans until the 1950s. My parents hired a 'Carapark' van in 1957 for a holiday. It was very basic, a rectangular box with rounded edges and corners, clad in aluminium. That was an early commercially-built van.
