Mr Ian Farren founded Coronet Caravans in Ballarat in 1959 and through his vision a very successful Brand was formed that continued throughout the 60’s and 70’s. Coronet Caravans thrived on innovation and in the early years produced Bondwood clad Caravans moving into silver aluminium and thereafter white aluminium cladding that became Industry standard. Coronet Caravans grew to become one of the largest manufactures of Caravans in Australia during this period. There are many of the earlier vans still in use and some specific examples restored by enthusiasts looking to showcase their masterpieces at events and rallies throughout the nation.
