  1. Richard Cluett says:

    My first van was a 9foot 6inch Cygnet of 1972 vintage. I think they were made in Cheltenham.

  2. Ian Howe says:

    My first touring caravan was an Ace Ambassador purchased in the 1970s.

    • Thanks Ian. I believe the Ace Ambassodors were a very popular model in both the 70’s and 80’s. It seems Swift have used the Ace Ambassodor name on certain dealer specials in 2016.

  3. Mike Hanson says:

    We had a Monza 1000 in late 70s early 80s

  4. Eric Smith says:

    No mention of the great Monza made at Hull

  5. Ian Sherwood says:

    Our first caravan was an Ace Diplomat purchased new in 1977. This was a 2 berth caravan with only a gas mantle above the front window for light. The Diplomat was 11 feet long but had a toilet compartment in which we used a Porta Potti 33. We could not afford the 13 feet long Ace Rallyman but we were proud of our little Diplomat which we towed behind a Ford Capri 1600. The wardrobe overhung the double bed and lost count of how mant times I banged my head on it. Happy days!

  6. Sandrab says:

    Ours was a Cavalier 1300 many years ago!

  7. DWR says:

    You’ve missed out the Robin – made at Willerby

  8. Mrs S Bell says:

    Our first caravan was a Lynton Arrow Executive. It was purchased in 1970.
