Stealth Caravans - by Dunster house

Can any one remember what happened to these caravans ---Launched in a great big blase of glory about 5 or 6 years ago.

At he time they were going to revolutionise the caravan concept.

They were nice at the caravan shows.

Now can't find one advertised by any one.

They weren't going to have dealers and could reduce the prices accordingly.

But I don't think it worked out.

Has any one got one --seen one

Be nice to understand what happened to them.

Poorly built and no trade in value. Many customers left with burnt fingers.

When I collected our van from the storage yard a couple of weeks ago there was one in there. that's the only one I've ever seen out in the wild.

They LOOKED good at the show -but got a bad press from the regular caravan community - perhaps they would have been better suited as a permanent mobile --

Wouldn't mind on on a regular long term site

Built into a commercial box trailer, pretty awful.

One on site in France but only overnight.

It's why they are called Stealth.

I pass the factory regularly...........

I think "many customers" may be an overstatement as I think they only ever managed to sell (and deliver) about 20 units.

Apologies instead of "many" I should have written "all" customers left with burnt fingers. After had two newbie caravan manufacturer start ups fail in the past 3 years, I doubt if people would be enthusiastic about buying from any other than decides to start up building caravans.

And Compass somehow rather lost their way but Gobur Carousels keep reliably coming round time and again

AS we know Bailey stopped burning their bridges; Going is a concern and Fendt for themselves.

Still got my Stealth Q58 after 6.5 years and it has been fine.  It is a shame that some people had issues mainly with Dunster House and now the few remaining have a bad name because of a few bad reviews.  Many other caravan makers have bad reviews but they are still going which points to a bad company and not a bad caravan.

      Yes a sad fact . my last three cars were mondeos .i loved the last one a 2.2 TDCI it had a slot for 6 cds which I loved . the one before was a Ghia estate built in sat nav. and the one before just basic .  All brilliant tow cars.  I have changed to a Kuga automatic . It is no where near as nice as my mondeo . The boot is small I’m not happy with it at all . I just keep comparing it . But it does tow very well.  I just have to get used to it I suppose unles can find a 3 year old top of the range one . The only one I saw last year was over 20K and bright red I couldn’t afford that and couldn’t have lived with the colour .

      I think the MK 3 Cortina was the first one I drove. It was a rental car from Aberdeen Airport. It was the first car I had encountered which had a single key for door and ignition, not to mention the first car I had driven with a steering lock. On the key ring was a short length of thick, stiff copper wire. The rental agent explained that they were having trouble with the Ford steering locks and before inserting the key, the copper wire was inserted and vigorously worked up and down to free the tumblers before the key could be inserted and  turned! My father had a Corsair 1600E, it kept randomly cutting out only to start again a few minutes later. This was eventually diagnosed as a plastic fuel filter mesh on the floor of the fuel tank. This was softened by petrol and getting drawn into the fuel line, the car stopped - the softened plastic floated out of the pipe and the car could be re-started - until next time! A friend had one of the last Cortinas, the factory had added all sorts of un-ordered stuff (presumably to use them up?). His 1100cc car came with Air Conditioning - the drawback was if you turned on the Air Con at the traffic lights, it would stall the car!     Cheers Keith
