    hi Guys,

    Looking at the current caravan market place, im thinking of building my own caravan.

    heres a really cool concept from overseas. apparently its from the first female caravan manufacturer.

    i like the concept, and im particurarly focused on a lightweight caravan which uses less fuel over long distances. and ultimately more cost effective to produce.

    i think this little caravan could be refined ever so slightly.

    inside it has a shower bathroom. kitchen (which i would put on the exterior) and a sleeping area/entertainment area.

    what i envisage is a cross over between the xcamper ( http://www.xcamper.co.za ) and the Jurgens Gypsey light impi ( https://www.campworld.co.za/caravans/gypsey/gypsey-lite-impi ) and the aloe Peri PEri ( http://www.aloecaravans.co.za/periperi.aspx ).

    ive added some pictures of the UK model, and their website is here: https://www.go-barefoot.co.uk/your-bespoke-barefoot-caravan/the-full-specification/

    what do you guys think?

    i know the first unit is going to cost me, but would anyone else be interested in this sort of idea if i was able to get the design and configuration just right? at a price point of about 150 000? with awning included? im curious.
