Just picture it: Packing your life into a small caravan, hitting the wide-open road, and exploring new places from sunrise to sunset. Every day, you wake up and scout for a charming spot, free from all the busyness of modern life, where you can prepare a meal, enjoy the views, and unwind.
If you dream of the good life on wheels, a small-sized caravan is just what you need. It gives you more independence and allows you to travel the world with freedom and ease. So what are some of the best small caravans in the New Zealand market today?
Here are some of the top choices.
The Nottingham Caravan is a tiny but stunningly crafted mobile home with an aluminum frame modeled in an aerodynamic teardrop shape. With just a tare mass of 530KG, it can easily be towed behind your average sedan or small SUV.
This Caravan really impresses with how many features it packs into its compact 2.6-meter length, 1.36-meter width, and 1.45-meter height. It comes with a full sink, refrigerator, spacious sleep arrangement, countertop work area, storage compartment, two 10 litre plastic water tanks, a solar panel, 100AH battery, and a multifunction wood cabinet.
For entertainment, you’ll love the LCD TV and waterproof stereo. And if you frequently go off the beaten track, the Nottingham caravan is just what you need. It’s fitted with heavy-duty suspension with dual shock absorbers and off-road tires and rims.
The Sunderland Caravan has the brawn to let you wander beyond the main roads and across different kinds of terrains. With a tare mass of 1100KG, it offers easy hauling.
It has a variety of layout options and features that make your mobile dwelling feel like a regular home. There’s a steel kitchen cooktop with two stoves, a 120-litre water tank, 12V electric water pump, shower awning, and a sleep system for two people.
The mosquito screen will keep pesky bugs out of your rig, and a waterproof camping awning will give you that extra room outside. Its off-road-ready hardware includes independent suspension with dual shock absorbers and rugged wheels.
If you prefer a caravan that sits inside the bed of your truck instead of one you pull behind your vehicle, check out the new Great Wall Steed single cab diesel fitted with a 2 berth camper.
The truck is simple and reliable, boasts a captivating, modern appearance and a spacious and comfy interior. It also has air conditioning, a leather steering wheel, and safety features, such as tyre pressure monitoring and Hill Hold Control.
The Charlotte pop-up camper that sits on the truck is loaded with everything you need for a memorable adventure. Its design is both visually appealing and functional. There’s an outdoor kitchen, a quality mattress that can sleep two, a 70-litre water tank, 75-litre waste water tank, and an outdoor fridge.
