These basic mobile homes are perfect for a couple as long as they are only planning on using it for a couple of days - because it can become quite cramped.

The benefits of a micro caravan is that they are small and aerodynamic.

They are specifically designed into a teardrop shape, so that they provide an effective slip stream, which will hopefully help lower your fuel consumption, making for a cheap trip all around.
