Goe Automotive visit the Caretta Factory

The Calypso team head out to the Caretta factory to place a further seven customer orders.

It's been delayed, postponed and long-overdue, but well worth the wait! Rohan Williams (General Manager) of GOe Automotive finally confirms his trip to meet the Caretta family in Turkey.

Rohan adds "The trip provided a fantastic insight into the production of the Caretta range and to meet the team behind global recognised brand". Meeting the owners, management team and production staff, proves real insight into the passion and craftmanship of the Caretta caravans and more so, getting a sneaky peak into the up and coming technologies for the next few years.

Seeing the full teardrop range, including the Shop, Cabriolet, Media and Rescue demonstrated why the teardrops are so popular around the world, and whilst being privy to some of the future designs and technologies (which include a newly designed front window for the teardrops), we further cemented our partnerhip and look forward to increased sales over the coming years.

Review as promised,

After taking holidays abroad for over 15 years the effects of the pandemic changed my view about travelling abroad and I made a decision to tour the UK , I'm a virgin caravanner, I always felt the concept of a huge caravan was beyongd my skill level , enter the micro caravan, I hadnt heard about micro caravans , I had looked at the teardrop models but felt it lacked some creature conforts but the Caretta  was the ideal option for my wife and I , I started travelling out every weekend and now I am currently touring the UK with my wife , its so simple  to hook up and go , i's changed my idea of caravanning completley , many thanks for showing me the way and thank you for changing my life, I will send some photos later

Best Regards
