Notes

Native to Australia, the CAREEL 18 was originally built by John Duncanson in the late 1960’s and was known as the Duncanson 18. David Rose, a dealer for Duncanson took over the manufacturing rights and subsequently renamed the class CAREEL 18. There are now three generations of CAREEL 18; the original, the Mark II and in 1985 the Mark III. The Mark III had its roof raised 10cm among other changes.
