Compact/Small Caravan Benefits

Perhaps, the biggest benefit of a compact Retreat caravan is that it is easier to tow, especially when you have to reverse it. As a small caravan is lighter, it is less challenging and easier to maneuver even on narrow roads. Due to its smaller size, it also has less drag which means better fuel economy.

Why Choose a Compact/Small Caravan?

Towing a caravan is a skill that takes some time to master, however, a compact caravan will be a lot easier for you which means you will have a less stressful time on the road. Another big advantage of having a small caravan is the flexibility it offers in being able to hitch it to almost any vehicle.

Most vehicles are capable of towing a caravan with ATM of less than 2,500 kg however, you still need to check your vehicle manual to be sure. Smaller caravans also mean better fuel efficiency which saves you a lot of money in the long run.

Purchase A Compact Caravan From Retreat

Are you looking for a compact caravan? Look no further as Retreat has you covered! Our design team will be more than happy to add a personal touch to your compact caravan by fitting it with a range of features to offer that extra level of comfort and convenience.


The first thing you need to check is the Gross Combined Mass which combines the weight of the trailer and tow vehicle including everything inside. This should be available in your car’s manual. Make sure to choose a caravan that can be towed by your current vehicle. Also, make sure it is capable of being taken to the places you want to explore.

It should also have all the features you need, especially when you are going to take it off-grid where you won’t have regular access to power and freshwater. It is also important to set a budget before you go shopping. Also, don’t forget to check the warranty terms to give you peace of mind.

Compact caravans are typically designed to be used by small families. If you have a growing family, it would be better for you to go for a full-size caravan. A well-designed compact caravan offers an easy-to-tow vehicle without sacrificing comfort for couples or smaller families.

The Retreat range of compact caravans is lightweight and can be easily towed with almost any vehicle. This gives you the best of both worlds where you can travel in luxury but without the challenges associated with maneuvering a larger caravan. They are also easier to set up and pack up which gives you more options when it comes to choosing a location to settle down.

You don’t always need a bigger and more powerful vehicle to tow a compact caravan. If you have a regular sedan and it has a tow rating that covers the weight of your compact caravan, you shouldn’t have any problem towing it with your current vehicle. The best way to find out whether you will be able to tow the caravan you are considering is to check the tow rating of your vehicle which should be available in the car manual.
