Dormobile (Martin Walter)
Martin Walter was founded in 1773 supplying harnesses for horses and then building carriages and coaches. They moved onto automobile coachwork and supplied bodies to Vauxhall, Daimler, Rolls-Royce and other manufacturers. Martin Walter also put windows in vans to produce Estate cars and utility vehicles for Ford, Morris and other manufacturers. But it was their work with Bedford vehicles, and especially the Bedford CA Van with beds and cookers in that created the 'Dormobile' name as a brand for Martin Walter. The Dormobile business boomed through the 1950s, 60s and 1970s but changes in the market saw a decline and the last Dormobile was built in 1984, and the company ended in 1994. The Dormobile name now exists as new company that remanufactures some of the Dormobile components.
