On The Road

In a "Little Robin Mini"  Caravan

 

We bought ourselves the smallest caravan we could find, small enough for our 1600cc automatic

Toyota Corolla  to tow, which it did quite happily.  We have since replaced the Corolla

with a Subaru Forester for legal reasons (the ball weight was too high). 

 

Here are a few pictures of the outfit.

We bought the model with a double bed at the front rather than two singles down either side, it

gives you heaps more bench and cupboard space.  As a concept, a small, light caravan is great.

It handles well on the road, it is comfortable to stay in and it certainly beats packing up a wet tent!

 

Overall we love it!

 

One early trip we did was a three week  5,500km trip to Queensland  it was a real eye opener but fun.

 In May 2006 we did the most wonderful trip into Lake Mungo and again in October 2012

The Van is a "Little Robin Mini" from "Driftaway Caravans" who no longer seem to exist.

 

We would love to hear from other Little Robin Mini owners about their experiences.
