Go! Camp & Drive - - Caravan Test -

In­side, to the right of the door, is a cup­board with a small round wash basin on top. The trailer has a gas geyser for warm wa­ter. The bat­tery and power box is in the bottom cup­board left of the door, and against the panel on this side of the door are small can­vas bags where you can store any­thing from your socks to a book to a flash­light. At the top of the panel are four shelves next to each other, each one with a small fabric door in front. (In the new mod­els the power box is out­side, but the bat­tery stays in the same place in­side the car­a­van.) In­side, to the right, is a U-shaped bench with seat­ing for three. Un­der­neath each seat is a cup­board with a loose lid – great stor­age for things like ex­tra pil­lows and blan­kets. Above the mid­dle seat a 65 x 60 cm ta­ble top folds out. Where the ta­ble folds out against the panel, a large fold-out door folds out of the body like a win­dow (it has mesh in front). The light is mounted in the roof above the top of the bed at a height of 77 cm. You do have to switch off the light first be­fore get­ting into bed be­cause the switch is next to the light. A light or even a switch next to the top of the bed would have made mat­ters a lot eas­ier. The other light sits in­side on top of the door frame. In the new mod­els there is a nar­row step in front of the bed so you can get in more eas­ily. This step has a cover; un­der­neath is an­other container. >
