Cabby caravans in their "origin" are designed for the northern, cold and harsh climate. Therefore, you will feel equally comfortable in them both in summer and in winter. The desired temperature is maintained due to excellent insulation of the body, a warm floor and a well-designed ventilation system.

Cabby had financial problems for several periods. In 2008, due to debts, the company changed owners and managed to repay a significant portion of loans. In 2014, a restructuring was carried out, which significantly revived the company. But this was not enough. On January 7, 2016, Cabby declared itself bankrupt. 63rd employees had to look for a new job. The right to a trademark (which will no longer be used), as well as spare parts that were on the balance sheet of the plant, was acquired by another Swedish caravan production company, Polar. The production of caravans in Kristinehamn was stopped forever, the plant and equipment were put up for auction. The story of the Cabby brand was over.
