Health authorities are advising that maintaining social distancing is a key factor in combating the spread of coronavirus and it appears we will be required to continue this practice 'for some time'. So if you want to take it really distance yourself, why not consider purchasing a small caravan that will take you and just one companion well away from others. Jade Caravan Finance provides ‘small loans for small vans’ so this may be a really affordable and attractive getaway option for many people.
While many caravan manufacturers are continuing to expand the features and inclusions in their models, with many vans getting larger and larger, some are following the ‘less is more’ philosophy and providing options for a different segment of the market. Those that only want to accommodate one or two people with the basics (albeit in style) and want to be able to tow their van with their standard car.
The Little Caravan Company offers a range of fully self-contained, off the grid caravans in small sizes - we’re talking a 12 foot caravan that can be towed by a small car. Welcome news for those that want to enjoy all that the caravan lifestyle has to offer but don’t want the added hassle and expense of investing in a large SUV and paying for storage when not in use.
Magnifying The Little Caravan Company
An accredited business with the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, The Little Caravan Company is based in the heart of the caravan manufacturing hub in Campbellfield in Victoria. The company specialises in building small vans which still have the comfort and features included in many much larger caravans. We’re not talking camper trailers. These have the conventional body shape and design of a caravan.
The company offers a range of caravans which includes road models, semi off-road and full off-road models with a range of layouts available. Many inclusions are standard, but you still have choices so you can customise your van to suit your lifestyle and your touring plans.
Key Attractions of a Small Caravan
- Compact size means easier storage than much larger vans.
- Can be towed by a 4 cylinder car which means no need to invest in a larger car.
- Smaller size should be easier to tow and more attractive to new-comers to caravanning.
- A single axis which facilitates ease of manoeuvring into smaller spaces.
What do you get in a small caravan?
Let’s take a look at the Optimiser. This has a rear slider so you only have to tow a 12 foot caravan but you get to actually live in 15 foot of space. So what do you get inside – a lot! We’re talking a double bed, a shower/toilet combo, sink, 2 burner stove, air-con, 80 litre fridge, TV supplied with antenna and wall bracket, 28 litre hot water, table with seating for 2 and a lot more both inside and outside.
With the X-Scape, everything is neatly arranged within the 12 foot thanks to the clever layout. Interiors are contemporary, stylish and includes smart use of overhead space for loads of storage. Both internal and external cooking facilities are included, internal shower and all you pretty much need for a life on the road or off the road.
The Little Caravan Company is not the only Australian manufacturer that is producing small vans. A quick search and there are a number of others available including:-
However, some of these smaller micro and 11 foot vans require the table seating to be converted to a double bed. Whereas the Little Caravan Company models have a permanent bed and still fit the table and dining seating.
