1996 - 1997

Cardale 23

The Cardale was another Conway model with an extremely short production period (in this case, one year, only; 1997).


Available in a two tone rust / beige colour scheme, with a peak fronted canopy, the Cardale was, in its standard format, a small to medium sized trailer tent. It featured the larger bed size, with the trailer part being 220cm deep, and the awning a further 240cm deep. The whole unit is 420cm wide. Like many similar models, the cardale also featured a zip in one metre extension, which had the added advantage of a built in toilet / wardrobe compartment. With the extension in place, the Cardale became the same size and layout as big brother, the Coniston.


The Cardale is a regular layout Conway trailer tent, featuring the standard Conway kitchen, attached to the rear of the trailer, making it readily accessible on short rest stops, if required. A four berth in its standard configuration, this can be doubled using the optional under bed pods. A full list of equipment, options and extras is available in the 1997 Conway brochure, which can be viewed using the link in the paperwork section, above.
