Have looked at the folding caravans with interest at several shows and always think what good value for money they are and how well equipped they seem to be. If we were 20 years younger we might well be tempted, but unfortunately we have become too cossetted and comfortable in our big house-on-wheels!! The other factor these days is the appalling weather that has supposed to have been our last 2 summers!

Dot and I had the folding Gobur van, and we still do at times look at some of the folders and trailer tents with considerable interest. We liked the Camplet folding trailer tent a lot - I do think the low and light trailer is the key.
But, of course, we're increasing doing stuff early and late in the season, and canvas walls put us off a bit!
As you can see, It is the hard top version which winds up so is very easy to erect. We were on the Isle of Wight last year in June and had 2 nights where we thought we were going to take off with the strength of the wind and torrential rain. Even though the Conway shuddered like crazy with every gust, it came through totally unscathed.
