These amazing foldable caravans are designed to be strong, yet light in weight and are suitable for those people who drive a small to medium sized tow vehicle and want a short overall towing length. The interior has been efficiently designed to maximise the living area and the simplicity of operation allows a quick and easy setup – usually within 30 seconds. Given that A’vans are designed and built with a solid construction and without canvas, they can easily be packed away in the wet. There are many different types of A’vans available with four models being suitable for this article.
ConstructionA’vans use a construction technology called vacuum bonding. This construction method produces a very strong sandwich used for wall panels, which may consist of a fibreglass or aluminium exterior, 2 layer plywood interior and a Styrofoam insulation layer in-between. The chassis of the A’van is constructed using hot-dipped galvanised steel to protect from corrosive elements like rust. The interior furniture inside the A’van is constructed of solid timber.
Types of AvansThere are four main model types of A’vans currently available on the market and they each have their individual features and advantages.
