There has been an amusing collection of caravan-related April Fools stories this year, including Lamborghini, Airstream, Thetford, the Swift Group and Coachman Caravans.
For example, Lamborghini posted an image of a concept caravan in the style to match one of its cars. It received over 3,000 likes and nearly 500 retweets on Twitter.
The Swift Group, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes, posted details of an “all-new Caraport” using telescopic corner steadies to raise the caravan in the air to enable under-caravan parking for a car. It went on to say: “We truly believe that this innovation has legs and will take the industry to even greater heights.”
Also in the UK, Coachman Caravans posted in image of a two storey caravan complete with sun terrace saying it was taking ” luxury caravanning to new heights, and suggested it could be called the Coachman Tower!
Thetford issued a story about a new Porta Potti Doggy for our four-legged friends. Some e-magazines wrote: “More than 50 years have passed since the invention of the portable toilet, which has ensured independence from hygienic facilities also for lovers of camping, tent carts, vans and multi-purpose vehicles. Now Thetford is taking another step forward with the Porta Potti Doggy line, which establishes a new level of usability of outdoor leisure time for dog owners, offering unique comfort of use and cutting-edge design.”
Airstream chose the 1 April to announce an exclusive ‘Bearstream’ trailer complete with furry exterior, rugged seating surfaces to stand up to claw scratches and a navigation system to help you get your bearings.
