The design is a modern interpretation of the static caravan and is intended to offer an alternative to a new, more style conscious consumer. It can be located in places where a building would not be permitted, let alone one of a contemporary design.
The standard caravan is 12m long and 3.75m wide and can be delivered as one self supporting piece on a flat bed lorry.
The shell section is elliptical and constructed from two skins of glass-reinforced polyester with a foam core. The shape and material give the unit its strength. Internal plywood bulkheads and floors are glassed into the inner skin; this further stiffens the structure and forms walls, floors and furniture. This technique is directly transferred from yacht design, where the need for lightweight, strong structures is paramount.
