The Avondale caravan company, based in North Warwickshire, was involved in the design and manufacture of touring caravans for 37 years. The company also developed caravan parks such as the Pathfinder Village in Exeter. Avondale produced motorhomes such as the Avondale Fiat Ducato 5, the CSX and the SLX during the years 2003-2005. These motorhomes are relatively rare since only about 250-300 vehicles were made. Unfortunately the company went into administration in 2008, when caravan sales slumped. Avondale ceased producing vehicles in the same year.
