From Esterel to Gobur and Pennine to Rapido, we’ve got it covered. When looking for cheaper folding caravan insurance it pays to use the services of a specialist caravan insurance provider such as Shield Total Insurance. We readily understand the subtle differences between a trailer tent, folding camper, folding caravan (or “folding compact caravan”) and a conventional touring caravan.

Folding caravans (with their “fold away” solid rigid roof and sides) offer a number of significant advantages over the traditional tourer. The fold down caravan’s lower height and profile allows for greater visibility and can be easier to tow or manoeuvre, whilst permitting secure, overnight, storage (in a domestic garage).

The lighter caravan weight and reduced fuel consumption will no doubt appeal to the discerning caravanner who is looking to downsize to a smaller tow car (and also save on their folding caravan insurance – with our great value, low-cost cover from only £66).

  • Gobur Caravans of Melton Constable in Norfolk, have been making folding caravans since the early 1970s with its Gobur Govan (that’s “Go-van” rather than the Glasgow town popularised in the BBC2 sitcom, Rab C. Nesbitt). The current Gobur Carousel folding caravan model line up includes the Slimline, Standard Width and Clubman.
  • Pennine Outdoor Leisure from Accrington in Lancashire, are renowned for making quality folding campers such as the Conway Crusader (this won the Caravan Club’s “lightweight leisure trailer award” for 2013 models). Their Pennine Artemis folding caravan (first launched at the Birmingham NEC Show in October, 2011) offers a fixed bed design.

Of the historical caravan manufacturers you may come across, two are French makes:

  • Esterel folding caravan (founded in 1959) with such model ranges including the Esterel Caramatic, Supermatic, Export Super, Sillage, Primatic and Top Volume.
  • Rapido folding caravan and their Export-matic, Confort-matic, Record, Orline, Club and Randonneur.
