Our History

Some background

The first Go-Pod was sold in 2006 and although much has changed, the basic concept has remained true.

For 15 years the Go-Pod has been England's #1 mini caravan - selling more than 3000 units.

The image on the right is a recent photo of an original 2006 model and although the front window has changed along the way, the sleek hallmark appearance has been retained.

Our aim was to create the best mini caravan, (micro tourer), possible, offering people convenience, affordability, comfortable camping and long lasting quality & practicality.

We believe that being smaller, everything becomes easier to use, a lot less worry and considerably more fun. 

This thought is the basis for the modern day Go-Pod.

From real camping experience, our designers knew that the bathrooms in most caravans seldom get used and often become a store room. It's simply easier to use a campsite's facilities than collect shower water, risk adding moister to a caravan, wiping it all down after use and then disposing of the grey water too!  

Luckily, with the emergence of online sites such as Tripadvisor, campsites had to step up their game and offer better, cleaner shower blocks - or else suffer results of bad reviews! Go-Pods could confidently remove the need for a built in bathroom & the design reached true micro-tourer proportions.

By reducing it's dimensions, we found that people who did not previously like the idea of towing, were enticed by the Go-Pod's anti-wobble, anti-snaking design.

Storage was no longer an issue and many owners found they could even use their garage at home - or otherwise easily find a small area to keep a Pod. This was not only good for security but by keeping it at home, you'll be more likely to use your Pod and get the most from your investment.

Apart from the storage benefits, moving the Pod becomes easier than a regular caravan, as does towing, setting up and even cleaning! And with increased convenience comes a lot more fun.

Until recently, production was mainly taken up by UK  demand, with occassional orders going to France, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Australia & New Zealand to name a few destinations.

Following the announcement of Brexit,  we launched our European programme in 2020, where Go-Pods could be offered to European customers & shipped direct from our manufacturing base in Portugal, to any destination, without ever leave the EU.

As with the UK, we don't use other caravan dealerships but instead we sell online and ship direct to our customer's homes. Thus cutting costs and giving our customers the best possible value for money.
