1980 and 1989 - 1990
The Conway Capri was, effectively, a re working of the previous model,
the Popular, and had, originally, the same layout, dimensions and colour scheme
as its predecessor. The original Capri was produced, to replace the Popular, in
1980, however, its production was short lived, and had already ceased, a year
later. It was another couple of years before Conway brought out another two
berth model (the Colt, which was available in both two and four berth
The Capri disappeared from the scene for a few years, but was reintroduced in 1989, and experienced another, brief, two year run, until it was, finally, discontinued in 1990.
Both models were a two berth, asymmetrical design, with the former model retaining the brown and beige colour scheme of the Popular and the latter going for a burgundy and grey theme, with petrol blue trim. The later version of Capri DL also had a U shaped seating layout, with a couple of back rests, for additional comfort. Both came with a full Conway kitchen.
Optional extras for the original version included; spare wheel and cover, over run brakes, under bed sleeping pod, and sun canopy. The later Capri had the brakes and spare wheel as standard, but extras included; a side annex with inner tent, under bed sleeping pod and roof rack.
