What are Pop Top Caravans?
Pop top caravans are built to enable the roof on normal caravans to collapse during normal towing so as to create a streamlined design. Normal trailers are large with a box-like appearance; this non-streamlined shape creates a lot of air resistance. When driving air resistances is notorious for making the tow vehicle work harder and, therefore, consume more fuel. This problem is compounded by the fact that trailers are heavy when fully loaded and thus require a stronger towing vehicle. Where the caravan being towed is heavy and non-streamlined, a powerful towing vehicle is required. Pop top caravans are built to reduce the air resistance while driving by enabling the user to collapse the roof and streamline the caravan. The roof can then be reassembled later after arriving at the destination.
One of the major benefits, when it comes to the use of pop top caravans, is the ease of towing. Since the main objective when building such caravans is to reduce the air resistance when towing, these caravans are easy to tow using normal cars. Most pop top caravans are built using ultra-light materials to minimise the load when towing. This makes it easy to tow pop top caravans using normal town cars; all you need to buy is a pop top caravan, and it will be suited to towing with your normal vehicle.
Another benefit that comes with pop top caravans is the affordability when compared with other caravans. Pop top caravans are cheaper than normal caravans due to the use of light and inexpensive materials in building them. The structure of pop top caravans does not require sturdy and expensive framing and panelling materials like normal caravans. Also, since the main objective is to create a light and easily towable caravan, some optional features may be omitted from the basic design of the caravan.
Exploring the outdoors can be highly entertaining and refreshing at the same time. Pop top caravans are affordable and easily towable, suited for towing using normal cars applied in daily use.
