Wow!!! That is one awesome bit of kit, that requires a seriously capable towcar. It does make the run of the mill caravans look just a teeny bit inadequate. Would I want one, NO!!! If you have that kind of money, I doubt caravanning would be at the top of the list of activities.

 

However if one of you guys was to buy one, I would love to be your personal valet for a suitable retainer and free use of your outfit!! ;)

Note: it doesn't say much about the nose weight! or the MTPLM either! mind you with the latest Carbon Fibre technologies it might be OK to tow with a Fiat Panda, once you ditch the washing machine & Dryer of course . .. :o

Most 4 x 4s would be able to tow the unit however as per American units the nose weight would probably be about 200kg and you require a special hitch.

Prices will tumble if a major mass production company took to making carbon fibre caravans .

Been saying for years don't know why caravan manufactures don't take a page out the aircraft industry. .. Monocouqe design made of MMMF's. Strength with reliability and very light in weight. .. Cost would be a problem. ......
