Even though the design and layout of off-road caravans are pretty standard, you often do see different nosecones. One of the more practical inventions is a nosecone on the A-frame with a door on either side. Hannes prefers the chest type, and while the body of the trailer is covered in aluminium sheets, the entire nosecone is made of fibreglass. It’s fitted onto an A-frame and has a cover that you can lift up. That’s also where you can see storage space is very important to Hannes. The nosecone is more than big enough for a caravan of this size, and it’s just what you need for all the loose camping goodies. On the longest side the measurements are 110 x 68 cm, and there’s space for everything from loose pegs and straps to a ground sheet and axe. The electrical socket for a cord from the Bateleur’s to the campsite’s socket is mounted on the left-hand side at the nosecone’s lid.
