Caretta Teardrop Trailers

They’re quirky and lightweight, they’re perfect for adventures for small families if you include the awning as an additional room / sleeping area.

I first came across the Caretta teardrop trailers at the Barcelona Caravan Show in 2018. The range includes two teardrop trailers the flagship 1500 and Off Road with other commercial units available in the Caretta Shop and Cargo units. The Caretta 1500 and Off Road are perfect for couples who want to adventure on a weekend with very minimal fuss. They’re lightweight and therefore easy to move from one point to another. They’re built by Basoglu Karavans, a Turkish manufactures with roots back to the 1970s. They’re award-winning to, having won awards in Perth, Australia as recent as 2017! Both the Caretta 1500 and Caretta Off Road are the same in terms of the shape, but the specification under the carbon fibre habitation is very different. The Caretta Off Road introduces underfloor storage options, Al-ko off road tyres and Al-ko rims. The Off Road starts at £14,995.

The Caretta 1500 offers a stylish exterior including a front locker where you’ll find the leisure battery and ample storage options for electricity reel, hose pipe for the fresh water tank and more. Whilst the rear of the Caretta 1500 offers a kitchen with basin, hob and coolbox. The rear kitchen offers plenty of storage both above and below the basin and hob. The 45 litre fresh water tank is located below the basin. The Caretta 1500 starts at £9,495. Overall, the Caretta teardrop trailers are easy to tow, thanks in part to their lightweight and aerodynamic spoilers complete with braked Al-ko chassis. Whether you’re a small family or couple looking for more adventures at the weekend. The Caretta teardrop trailers raise eyebrows on campsites and are very easy to prepare for a quick getaway after work on a Friday night. They’re available to purchase from TMC Leisure a family run business, established over 40 years. Located in North Manchester, the company is sole concessionaire for the Caretta teardrop trailer range.
