Just to muddy the thought process.

There is the Gobur range which is even easier to tow and store. Open up and close down is fairly rapid plus maximises interior space due to box shape.
Duplicate as a portaloo-changing room-refreshment bar during your many escapades.

Thank you :D

I have looked at Gobur and decided against a folding caravan, too much to go wrong.

Currently in no 1 spot is Eriba Familia 320 GT, Second is Eriba Triton 420, third is T@B Mexico as I just love the Salsa look :D

We got the T@b 320 rs off road years ago, mainly to carry all of the
gear that kids need.IMG_0740.JPG

I bought a T@B, it was lovely. Sadly, we had a very small mishap towing it home and OH was never keen to tow thereafter, so I sold it without ever getting away in it. It was lovely, really nice layout and very dinky. I thought it was easy to tow and I'd never towed before. Our other issue was we had to keep it in storage, so it was a pain but I think it would have been very neat on a drive.

Think it would have been very comfortable and would have complimented a T6 very well. You'd certainly be able to tow it without much effort.

GJ - check out Go Pods. They are small, light and brilliant. I nearly bought one before we plumped for the Cali, as I needed something small which I could park at home, possibly in my garage, and possibly even 'live in' at my parents' house in their garage as I can't sleep in the house due to it upsetting my dad's dementia and thus meaning no-one got any sleep. You can customise the look too with all sorts of whole body decals now. They really are worth a look - it would offer a 'spare room' for your sister, but has the same comforts as the Cali if you or any of your family members needed to borrow it on its own.

Thank you Verity. Had a look, fired off an email and now awaiting an appointment to view, hopefully before Wednesday!

Happy to help. They are cracking little vans. If my husband hadn't got all carried away and started thinking about spending 50 grand instead of 9 or 10 I would have been the proud owner of a Go Pod now!

Possibly not what Jo wants as she does like a bathroom rather than a pull-out cassette which could be difficult in the middle of the night with a dog lay in front of it :) Gorgeous though. Looking forward to seeing one.

Good choice, my better halfs parents have one of those and more than once I have wondered about swapping the Cali for one!

No problem I'm glad this thread has been of service to you!
Sounds like the perfect solution for you.
Meanwhile I've gone off the caravan idea for now, we've just got back to Calais, it was a lovely easy cruise up the toll motorways and it made me realise I don't want to be towing a big caravan hundreds of miles.
And I saw what looked like the perfect Burstner MH on their website the other night so I'm back on plan A again!

Envy on that addition.

Albert 1 of Germany married Elizabeth of Carinthia. How about Albert & Beth just to keep the German connection to both units.

Can wear two hats with that one ..... Our current Queen's parents were Albert and Elizabeth :)

I'm keeping my nose out of naming little sis, Jo was not impressed when I suggested Boudica :shocked

Adria Action Caravan looks to pretty up to date on fittings/equipment.
It'd solve any Beach long stopover issues.
