Go-Pods - the best CamperVan alternative.

CamperVans are very cool, some are even iconic - but not everyone finds out their limitations until having parted with a small fortune.

Here are some insights from people who have discovered those hidden issues for themselves.

The number one gripe we hear from campervan owners is not having a run-around vehicle when away. This means that each time you want to nip out to the beach or to pick up supplies, you’ll have to break down your entire camp before you go, then set it back up again afterwards.

In fact, we sell Go-Pods to many VW owners for this very reason! 

They sleep & eat in the Go-Pod, leaving it set up as a base on the campsite - then end up using their rather expensive motor camper as a day vehicle.

Often the camper isn't the complete answer that they'd hoped it would be.

Many even had a car that would adequately have pulled the lightweight (750Kg MTPLM), Go-Pod too.


CamperVans can be pretty pricey so surely that makes them even more desirable?

But wouldn't it be great to spend some of that tied up money on enjoying your trips instead?

What's more, unless the camper is to become your everyday vehicle, (which isn't always very practical), you'll be hit with the burden of additional, second vehicle running costs. Tax, insurance, MOT's and servicing - not to mention depreciation.

Go-Pods can often be used with your exisiting car & when you're not using your Go-Pod, it's not costing you a thing!

Best of all, a Go-Pod won't devalue like a camper either, making more, good financial sense.

At the top end of the motor camper market, people can easily lose sums equivalent to the cost of a Go-Pod, in just the first year's depreciation!

Meanwhile, Go-Pods hold their value very well, (due in part to their robust GRP shell), & drop a fraction of their RRP, even after many years. Making them altogether a far less risky investment.

Practically speaking, many camper vans offer less day-to-day living space & something that is often overlooked is the available standing room, once the bed is made up. 

Many campervans leave no room for standing, so once the bed is made, you'll be making the coffee on your knees & pulling your jeans on laying down! Certainly not great for the back, especially on longer trips. 

Go-Pods provide a convenient standing area, even when the bed is made up. You can cook a meal, make a hot drink & get dressed - all while standing comfortably. Even the loo can be used inside - making all the difference when you're actually travelling.

From a comfort perspective, many campervan’s rock n' roll style beds can be bumpy & small. Compare this to the Go-Pod's large, flat, king size bed platform, complete with it's 10cm foam mattress for a proper nights sleep!

Go-Pods are compact, designed to be easily handled, (even solo), and tow with superb ease. They are narrower than many campervans and are designed never to snake or wobble.

You don't even need extension mirrors and will never be stuck in a tight spot. Even if you don't fancy reversing, you can unhitch in moments, spin the Pod on a sixpence and be away in no time at all! Whilst being a true micro-tourer, Go-Pods are nothing at all like towing a regular caravan. They have their own built in brakes and no towing experience is required.

Save money, experience greater comfort, convenience and fun with Go-Pods micro-tourers - the true CamperVan alternative.
