The Windsor Rapid caravan is well suited to family travel with four beds and plenty of storage.

Windsor Rapid highlights

  • Pop-top van with fold out ends
  • Well suited to family travel
  • Ideal for any number of tow vehicles
  • Includes a shower/toilet cubicle

Much of the current caravan market is aimed at the grey nomads, but there are still plenty of caravans and derivatives which are ideal for family use. Step forward the Windsor Rapid, which features a pop-top roof and fold-out ends which, in theory, makes it good for towing, as well as having a spacious interior.

THE VERDICT

One of the big sunrises in this van is that, given its size, it comes with an on-board bathroom. I'm not sure it could be a full-time item for a family, especially given the water tank capacity, but for occasional use, it's there. I should point out that if you can live without the shower/bathroom, then there are Rapid layouts with larger kitchens, which may well suit a number of users. All that said, I reckon the Rapid is great for a family who don't need or can’t afford a larger van, but who still wish to enjoy the RV lifestyle.
