Micro Caravans for Lightweight Touring

Touring Magazine introduces the world of micro-touring with these smaller-than-average caravans

Big adventures creating great travel experiences don’t have to begin with the purchase of a huge – or extraordinarily expensive – caravan. Downsizing can mean even bigger adventures and the chance to go further. And, if there’s anything to learn from the recent experiences of petrol stations closing and locked-off petrol pumps, it’s that lightweight touring, using less fuel, could be the way forward.

Go-Pods

Unique in shape, Go-Pods are fun and versatile options for keeping things small while touring. With an MTPLM of just 750kg, you can select from three specifications: Plus, Platinum or Venus. Prices start from £14,795.

All Go-Pods have a wrap-around seating area that converts into a double bed, a 240V Dometic fridge, two-burner hob, sink, electric tap and portable cassette-style toilet. Opt for the Plus model, and you’ll also receive dual-fuel blown-air heating, and a front box for gas bottles and extra storage plus a full airbeam awning that sleeps an additional four people.

The Platinum includes the above plus a 100W solar panel, 12V digital flat-screen TV, larger sink, an external 240V mains socket, USB upgrade, microwave oven and electric hook-up cable. 

Venus offers the highest specification, with an upholstery fabric upgrade, higher-spec wood and worktops, pop-up 240V sockets with USB, cables and security items plus, on the outside, a choice of coloured GRP shell (match it with your car?) and alloy wheels.
