Top 5 coolest caravans 2021

Caravans often get a bad rep, but there really is something for everyone and having a caravan can be so enjoyable. Here we look at some of the coolest lightweight caravans for sale...

Even if you need more space and larger sleeping arrangements, you can't help but love teardrop and tiny touring caravans. Light weight and easy to tow by any licence, including drivers who may not have passed their B+E test, these tiny caravans are fun and they're often easier to handle on the roads, too.
Check out the below before you go looking up your ideal light weight caravans for sale.

Top 5 coolest campers

1. Go Barefoot with one of the coolest caravans

One of the tidiest little tourers available, the Barefoot caravan has somehow been able to make an egg on wheels look beautiful, with a lick of luxury throughout. In a world of lightweight everything when it comes to caravan towing, you may be surprised to find solid oak kitchen tops complementing the two-ring gas hob among the plentiful features here.
Style points are also added for storage as well, with cubby holes and compartments everywhere that really make the most in the way of space efficiency. Two berths of retro cool caravanning, right here. The classic Barefoot caravan weighs in at £27,500 with your bespoke choices. Find out more at the Barefoot website.

2. Get out and do more with the Swift Basecamp caravan

Swift's crossover caravan is looking to put an end to caravans being seen as white boxes taking up the space on winding country roads. Aesthetically-speaking, excitement comes in the way of graphics packs that will suit any style. On the inside a panoramic window provides the views, while clever storage, anchor points and every contemporary comfort prepare you for your big adventure any day.
The Swift Command control system also lets you stay connected to your caravan while on the move, meaning that you can turn on the heating to prep a warm welcome, or locate your tourer should the worst happen. Find more details at the Swift Basecamp website.

3. Ready? Set? Go Pod caravan!

The diminutive dimensions of the Go Pod campers are anything but delicate. It's amazing the difference that the pop top makes compared with traditional teardrop caravans, but it's the king sized bed conversion that makes for real luxury in such a small package.
One-piece construction eliminates ingress worries while AL-KO running gear inspires even further courage on the road than its light weight alone. On the inside it's more traditional tourer than many options featured here, for those looking for familiar caravanning comfort. However, clever uses of space mean that there's more to the Go Pod camper for practicality and peace in perfect measure. Prices start at £10,995. Find your perfect pod to pitch up in at the Go Pod website.

4. OPUS camper: ready to put the work in, in style

Billed as “a stylish and innovative folding camper”, the OPUS does exactly what it says on the tin. Despite being satisfyingly tidy on tow, you're not going to get many heads turning while on the road (good thing for driver safety), but on-site is where the real fun begins.
Unclip and unpack as pressurised gas struts make pitching easy, even for one person. Simply start to set up and you'll see a capacious camping set up literally unfold before your eyes. Beds are sized at 190cm x 140cm, sleeping up to six in the camper itself with another four in the optional awning, and there are accessory options to suit any lifestyle. Kick back, relax in your heated living area and enjoy the view from windows on every wall. Prices start from just shy of £16k. Visit the OPUS website for more.

5. Get ready for some Knaus Sport & Fun

This is a cool caravan. It feels different. It's begging to have active holiday makers towing it to somewhere it can sit on a site while they're out taking on the world. In addition to the adventure practically alone (think surfboard storage, perhaps), the large rear door is also perfect on a sunny day to keep open for easy access to kitchen and a barbecue.
There are little trick touches all over, such as the storage hammock up front. But it's the garage that's the difference-maker, here – it's massive. Perfect for storing bikes, water sport equipment or any other gear for activities. Even if you're just hiking or taking a gentle stroll, having the space for boots, walking poles and waterproofs is handy to say the least. Have a look at the Knaus website for more information on the sensational Sport & Fun.
