A new year brings new RV headlines and – and as always – we’re here to fill you in on the latest and greatest stories. From new towable units to awesome camper vans at this weekend’s Florida RV Supershow – we’ve got all the news you need to know in this edition of “Your RV News Fix.”
New Pop-Up Camper Can Be Towed by Almost Any Vehicle
If you’re looking to dip your toe into the RV lifestyle, a pop-up camper is a great place to start. Luckily the designs of these popular models are getting better each year. The Dutch startup Easy Caravanning just debuted the TakeOff – a pop-up camper that sets up under one minute. The ease of set up is ideal for first-time RVers and it comes in at just 1,650 pounds – making it easy to tow for most vehicles. The inside is simple but includes the kitchen basics (stove, electric fridge, and sink), a dining area, and an optional annex tent that lets you sleep a family. Pricing starts from $15,000-$21,000. As a startup company, Easy Caravanning will be launching first in the European markets – but if all goes well, they plan on international distribution. We’ll keep you posted.
