Go-Pods are incredibly lightweight, and as a result most cars (even those with small engines!) can tow them without issue.

There are a few things that you'll need to check to ensure that your car is able to tow a Go-Pod, including a couple of legal requirements.

Click here for a comprehensive guide.

Your Go-Pods chassis number can be found on the VIN plate attached the side of the drawbar at the front of the Pod.

Our partner Autofinance offers finance options on the Go-Pods.

The current Go-Pods (from 2022 onwards) are fitted with Dometic CRE50 12v front-opening refrigerators. These fridges run from the leisure battery and will operate without mains electricity, making them perfect for off-grid adventures.

Older Go-Pods were fitted with Dometic 240v refrigerators that will not run without a mains connection. However, it is possible to remove these fridges from the storage space and connect them to a gas bottle outside of the Go-Pod.

All post-2020 Go-Pods include a front box/gas storage locker, mounted to the front of the Pod below the window, and above the drawbar.

The gas bottle is stored inside, secured by a harness, and is fully plumbed through to the 2 burner hob and heating system (if installed).

It is possible to retrofit a front box onto an older Go-Pod. Please click here for more info.


Go-Pods fit in most standard UK garages, helping to save on storage fees and allowing you to get away whenever the mood strikes you!

Your garage will need a minimum of 2.10m clearance. Please check the Go-Pods dimensions here.

In 2023, Calor Gas discontinued the 3.9kg propane bottle that was the standard for most small caravans.

We suggest that you insure your Go-Pod on a 'new for old' basis based on the price you paid including any accessories. You may also consider adding £500 cover for personal effects.

New customers are also entitled to a 14 day FREE tow-away insurance cover offer from CaravanGuard. To claim, please select the option at checkout.

The Go-Pods come equipped with a number of interior and exterior lights.

Inside, there are 2 x LED reading lamps situated at either end of the shelf above the front window, warm white LED lighting strips above the kitchen & refrigerator units, and warm white LED lighting strips in the footwell (with independent switch).

There's also an exterior LED porch light mounted above the door to provide lighting in the awning during the evening/night.

We're often asked if it's possible to tow a Go-Pod with a motorbike, and sadly, based on Government guidelines, it seems not.

However, there are a few customers who tow their Go-Pods with trikes, so you may be in luck!

Automatic motor movers are the most popular accessory that we fit to Go-Pods!

The motor mover consists of two units fitted either side of the Go-Pod. At the push of a button, the drive rollers engage against the caravan’s tyres. Your Go-Pod can now be effortlessly manoeuvred over rough ground, up slopes or in to tight spaces by simply using the directional buttons on the handset. For best results, we recommend an inflatable jockey wheel be used in conjunction with this item. 

Although Go-Pods move easily on smooth flat surfaces like tarmac, the effort required increases as the surface deteriorates. Soft earth, long grass, troughs and inclines all increase resistance, with the worst surface being gravel, which will lock up the wheels of any trailer.

Customers based in New Zealand or Australia can order via our dedicated NZ website, www.Go-Pod.co.nz.

Your are required to bring your own rear number plate with you on the collection day.

Metric - 520mm × 111mm

At Go-Pods we don't use caravan dealerships like other manufactures but instead, we sell by word of mouth passing those savings along to the customer.

Over 100 Go-Pod owners worldwide have joined our Referrals Programme & volunteer viewings of their own Go-Pods. This saves new customers considerable travel time & provides the opportunity to speak with real, experienced owners. Customers benefit from both a convenient, local viewing option & an honest product review at the same time.

Uniquely, Go-Pods allow new customers to speak to existing customers, demonstrating the manufacturer's remarkable confidence in the brand. No other caravan companies dare to sell this way instead of through dealerships!

Go-Pods are plated at 750kg as standard, but this can be increased to 1,000kg if requested, giving an extra 250kg of payload.

Customers should only choose this option if their vehicles have a braked towing allowance of 1,000kg or more.

We don't have a distributor in the USA at present, but you can order directly from us for shipping to the closest US port.

There will be some remedial work required once it lands in the US, as Go-Pods are wired for 240v mains electricity. In the past, we have shipped Go-Pods to US customers without any wiring, so that they could have it installed at a local workshop ensuring that it matches the US codes.

If you'd like to enquire about shipping a Go-Pod to the USA, please send us an email at [email protected].

All Go-Pods include a 12 month 'back to base' warranty as standard, but there is the option to upgrade to a 3 year national warranty. With the upgraded warranty, you can take your Go-Pod to any NCC approved workshop for repairs.
