A Dutch pop-up caravan manufacturer that only started operations in December 2019 has already grown so fast that it has had to move its factory to a larger site, and is now exploring the possibility of exporting to the UK, despite the break with the European Union.
Easy Caravanning currently produces three pop-up TakeOff models, starting from €13,895. The cheapest, the Active, only features a 2.05m-long bed with a possible dinette extension. The Sport model also includes an induction cooker and water pump, while the top of the range Xcite adds an awning and a coolbox. All models come on Al-Ko chassis and have an MTPLM of just 750kg.
Easy Caravanning founder Maarten de Roos said the onset of Covid-19 had caused the company to delay initial production, so that their first customers did not receive their caravans until June. But since then the company has expanded, and has already started exporting to Germany and to Norway, where a ban on sales of new internal combustion engine cars which comes into force in 2025 is causing many Norwegians to consider lighter caravans.
“We are now in discussions with a few dealers and possibly about bringing our models to the UK, and may even appoint an importer,” he said.
