There is a trend among caravanners for downsizing as they seek to reduce the cost of touring, by opting for smaller, more economical tow cars. This in turn means smaller caravans are becoming more appealing. 

There are a few options from mainstream manufacturers but if you want something genuinely compact, you have to think outside the box. Literally. The Going Cockpit does just that. 

The Cockpit is not an entirely new model. It first appeared in 2006. The tiny GRP one-piece bodyshell mounted on a lightweight chassis looked distinctive and was imported to the UK in small numbers. Built by the now defunct Portuguese Pluma Caravans, manufacture of the micro-tourer ceased, but limited production has restarted and new models are exclusively available again, through the Red Lion Caravan Centre in Ormskirk.
