We still think it is brilliant to be able to pitch camp in a minute – and lie 60 centimetres above the ground in a tent. Thus, the idea behind a Combi-Camp has not changed since 1964 – only the design.
Being on holiday is about spontaneity, freedom and simplicity. When the basic things function and the map is bought – the rest follows naturally. We believe it should be easy to go on holiday. The holiday must begin when you pull out of the driveway.
In a time where vehicles and equipment are becoming bigger and bigger and more and more complex – we still think that preparing to leave and unpacking equipment must be as simple as possible. It must be of a sturdy quality but without being too much to carry around.
A caravan without the inconveniences
Not everyone immediately associates comfortable camping with a tent trailer. A fully equipped caravan is a much better option. However when travelling to your destination, a caravan adds to your overall fuel consumption and tolls are high, as are the prices for ferry crossings, campsites and winter storage. And you need a reasonably powerful car to tow a caravan, which also increases the amount of road tax you pay in some countries.
Once on the campsite, a caravan’s living space is quite small, so you will need an awning. And you won’t want to cook in your bedroom, of course; you do that on a barbecue or in a separate kitchen. But the fridge is indoors, involving endless trailing up and down the steps.
