Press Comments

Thomson, of T-Line fame, have been making caravans at Falkirk since covered-wagon days-well, since the gypsies . . . Perhaps the most endearing feature is their towability. Never a trace of snaking or bucking, and with deep windows to let you see following traffic through the car's interior mirror. The Glenelg isn't the cheapest 13-footer, but you can see the value in the stuff it's made of and the detail finish. Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald, 5.9.69.

Scottish Caravan Show, Kelvin Hall, Glasgow . Obviously in a Scottish show, the only Scottish manufacturer, Thomsons of Carron, will attract attention-not only because they are Scottish, not only because if you live in the Central Belt. . . delivery charges are very low, but also because these Vans represent remarkable value.

For 1970 Thomsons have smartened up the shapes throughout, and also introduced a new, 2-berth version of the 10ft. Glen, which at £405 is a very nice job indeed.-Motor World, 30.1.70.

International Boat Show in Helsinki , Finland.The UK caravans are the only caravans in the whole show . . . Thomson (Carron) has based its promotion on the idea that caravanning is no longer just a summer recreation ... one of their local employees has just spent a ski-ing holiday in a Thomson Mini-Glen in temperatures of around-20°C, and the company is pushing the caravan as a mobile ski lodge. The British effort is both unique and impressive - Financial Times, 17.3.70.

Thomson T-Line. The growth so far has been remarkable. The shares were offered to the public two-and-a-half years ago at 18s and are now changing hands at 28s. The price rise is due to increasing profits.- The Scotsman, 5.1.70.

Thomson T-Line Caravans, Falkirk, have won their first-ever Moroccan export order. Six £365 Glen caravans are being shipped to Casablanca.- Evening Times, Glasgow , 6.2.70.

Thomsons, of Carron, Falkirk, who now claim to be Britain's second largest manufacturer of touring caravans, seem well geared for the seventies, when a great boom is expected.- Glasgow Herald Trade Review, January, 1970.

Scotland 's dollar-earning T-Line caravans have a new look this year. A sharper profile and extended range bring them into the vanguard of contemporary design. The characteristic T-Line design is retained, since this has proved a winner on both home and international markets.- Glasgow Illustrated, March, 1970.

Thomson's export order book is the largest it has ever had at this period of the year.- Sunday Telegraph, 26.10.69.

More and more Falkirk-built Thomson T-Line caravans

will be gliding along the highways of Canada and the United States in the next few years . . . Last year Thomson exported goods worth £162,694 This Canadian venture could lead to a significant increase in the group's overseas earnings.- Financial Scotsman, 1.10.69.
