No Drag on your Life
Enzo Ferrari: "Aerodynamics is for those who cannot build the engine of a Ferrari."
Our goal is to build the safest and most efficient caravan.
Most of the energy is taken up when towing so a fundamental different design was needed.
Stability is just as important. See the findings of a University Study by clicking for a copy of the report

To achieve these excellent results we designed the Kruiser so that:
- It is has a “bullet shaped” nose
- The nose comes closer to the towing vehicle so this is less “air dam” in between
- The side walls profile at 6 degrees to a narrower roof
- There are virtually no “added hatches, fillers, protruding bits and pieces” on the smooth sides
- The sides are smooth fibreglass not “crinkle cut” aluminium
- The wind out awning is concealed in a "letter box" side compartment
- The Awning arms are not protruding from the side when travelling
- There is no "rear window" with protrusions that "suck dust"
- There is no rear wheel hanging that creates drag
- The Super-Thin solar on the roof is only 2mm thick
The Front profile of the Kimberley Kruiser is both 11% smaller in Area than the traditional "square wall profile" of most caravans. This reduces wind resistance and improves the stability by having less weight in the roof area. The inboard awning that is located in the concealed "letter box" on the passengers side recess dramatically reduces drag and lessens the liklihood of damaging the awning when travelling off road.
