The Ridge Retro caravan is inspired by the 10-foot caravans that were common in the 1960’s. With a spacious and flexible interior it can sleep up to 4 people on 2-metre long berths. Featuring a full kitchen and plenty of storage and weighing less than 800kg you can tow with a medium-sized car and camp with style and ease.
At the rear of the caravan a wide dinette converts into a double bed at night. There is storage under each seat and oversize windows provide plenty of light and air. Windows can be fully opened and have retractable flyscreens and blockout blinds.
The outer caravan door can be opened to provide full flyscreen ventilation. Interior headroom is 190cm.
