The weights don't seem too bad, but can't get the image of a Minor Traveller and gypsy caravan love child out of my head. I do admire the people behind it for having a go, not sure it will work but wish them well. They say they are aiming at 20 a year initially rising to 50 when fully operational. I suppose those prices reflect the hand built bespoke element and however much we all moan about the quality of the mass produced offerings, those are the prices we would have to pay for a better quality build. I can't see any mention of warranties or damp ingress guarantees either. there was a post on CT forum following the hand building of another brand, maybe Inos? where the buyer posted pictures during the build, and incorporating his personal features, obviously it was a modern shape with the slide out side but that was a lot of money too, well beyond my means.

Do you mean something like this? Picture taken in France where they had been touring around. Zoom in and look at the towing hitch dolly arrangement.

I did see the caravans on Google this morning. Not sure about the weights but the aerodynamics look a disaster and possibly best used as a seasonal pitch if you buy one. It will make you the talking point of any site though.

At £75000 I would want full use of it. I wonder if it will suffer from cracked ABS panels. TBH I think it is gong to be a non starter. The Inos is a better bet and cheaper also.

I suspect that any buyers will have a specific purpose for it and will be able to live with the price. Possibly to be used sited and with a charge to match the price,
