Split Air-conditioning keeps Off Road Caravan Height below 2100mm

Posted by Bruce Loxton

Jun 13, 2013 5:18:00 PM

One of the universal problems with caravans is their travel height and subsequent storage height. The development of the "pop top" caravan solved this issue but introduced the added problems of poor insulation and space utiliztion with this limited design. The Kimberley Karavan is an off road caravan that unfolds automatically with electric finger touch controls. It has a builtin "slide out" with a Super Queen Size Bed that takes a simple hand operation to engage. The benefit of this is a lower travel height similar to your 4WD. Combined with the feature of being the same width as a 4WD it can go where ever your vehicle can travel.
