If cuteness is one of your criteria when you’re thinking of buying a caravan, forget the rest and just grab a Barefoot now!
That said, this caravan’s appeal goes way beyond its charming easter-egg profile, because there’s real engineering excellence in abundance with this titchy tourer.
Quite how designer and company owner, Cathy Chamberlain, squeezed so much touring goodness into this small caravan is a mystery, but it features a super-cool retro lounge (that converts into a decent-sized double bed), a kitchen – with sink, hob, fridge… and a surprising amount of storage, plus a brilliant shower room, behind a tambour door.
Inside there’s a loo, basin and a shower with enough space for six-footers to stand up straight. The interior feels light and spacious, thanks to large windows and rooflight, and you can spec it in a wide range of colours, all matched by a retro Roberts radio!
The one-piece monocoque body is manufactured by fibreglass experts, Watsonian Squire, perhaps better known for their motorcycle sidecars!
In a world of white boxes, beautiful Barefoot stands out in its six-shade pastel finery – including Duck Egg Blue, Dusty Pink and Ice Green.
Barefoot comes in two styles: Classic and Forward, starting at £33,950. A range of optional extras is available.
