Sounds like a good day out, checking out all the off road caravans/trailers. Wish there was a market for it in the UK. When I finish sorting out my Terracan I am looking to Make a Off Road Trailer.
Ive seen some in America, they make them out of the polished alluminium like the original streamlined caravans. Basicaly they look really shiny. Obviously they have all the useual gubbins in them. But More dureable running gear and higher ground clearance.
I Think the term "off road caravan" is abit over kill. I think of them more as All Terrain Caravans then "Off Road". Its still a caravan but its higher, has a stonger chassis, bigger suspension and tyres with a Fue Bash Plates.
It could even work if Uk Caravan manufactures offer a "Adventure" level.
Eg: On a swift caravan the "Adventure" package would have the body 50mm Higher on the Chassis, Taller tyres, Tougher suspension, springs, torsion bars and shocks. Add a full length alluminium skid plate and some alluminium or steel frame supports to make the body more Ridgid. It could be welcomed by the touring community. Not something to take through the malaysian rainforest challenge but it would be great for europe etc.
There could be a market for it and would be more cost effective to offer a add on pack instead of designing a whole new caravan or trailer platform.
