On this page you will find blog-style entries with the latest updates about this site, ideas for additional content, and other Caravan-related information.
A NEW PAGE!
January 24, 2024
Two entries on the same day? Yep, that's right! Today I've started a new page covering known Caravan operators, both past and present. The data comes from a list I had compiled for an earlier iteration of this site and have updated and formatted. You can find it listed as Operators
on the menu at the top of the page. If you currently operate a Caravan or know of an operator that should be on the list, please let me know. Another change to the site today is the inclusion of a short guide to the content of 208caravan.com
on the home page.
TEXTRON ANNOUNCES CARAVAN DELIVERIES FOR 2023
January 24, 2024
Today Textron announced their fourth quarter results and yearly summary for 2023. Deliveries totaled 79 Caravans last year: 19 in the first quarter, 21 in the second, 14 in the third, and 25 in the fourth.
BACK IN THE SADDLE
January 22, 2024
I've returned from dealing with some family medical issues and am looking forward to getting back to updating this site! While the updates I mentioned in the previous post will continue to be the main source of new information, I would like to also grow the other pages on the site as well. Check out The Caravan
page for a newly-added list of Caravan conversions. If memory serves, Textron will be releasing their official delivery numbers for the year within a few days, and there are a number of recent accidents and incidents that I would like to get entered as well. I'd love to hear from you and your history with the Caravan or your interest in it. Drop me a line sometime!

Updates to the site are continuing. I am currently working on moving the data from my manuscript of The Caravan Guidebook 2023
onto the website. As you can imagine, there is a lot of data to process, so this will likely be the bread-and-butter of the site updates for the foreseeable future. That being said, there will likely be a brief pause in updates for a week or two as there are some health issues in the family. As always, thank you for your interest in the Caravan and this site!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
January 2, 2024
Happy New Year and welcome to 2024! After a short break for the holidays, work on 208caravan has begun again. I have made the decision to use this section of the site to feature "from your webmaster" content, organized by dated, blog-style entries. The intent is to provide a place where you can discover the latest site updates, my thoughts and ideas about both the site and the Caravan itself, and general Caravan-related information. Specific details like incidents, accidents, registration data, new serial numbers, these will be added as time allows in the applicable section of the Fleet page.
