DASHAWAY e caravan
Wheelhome DASHAWAY 'e' caravan. From £19,230 for the one berth and £23,230 for the two berth.
A high quality little touring caravan quite simply unlike anything else on the market.
Designed specifically to meet the challenges and demands of the latest and forthcoming vehicle legislation/technology to allow you to enjoy your leisure time, not just today but for the future too. Future-proof caravanning has arrived!
Tow-able by most little cars (old and new) with a towing capacity of 1,000kgs or more, but also bang-up-to-date diesel, petrol or petrol/hybrid cars including fully electric cars as and when they become viable. Dashaway e caravan (‘e’ being for electric) is super-stable, compact and light-weight on the road, making minimal demands upon the tow car.
On the road, the Dashaway interior accommodates the retracted ‘Podrant’. This is in stark contrast to a ‘normal’ caravan where you’re lugging around a large and mostly empty box of air. Dashaway; makes sense then, doesn’t it? Once on site, or in a lay-by for a snack, the space enhancing Podrant electrically deploys in just 30 seconds.
The two berth has a double bed as standard but also can be built with two single beds (6'5" x 2'2").
Dashaway e caravan has all electric cooking so it’s gas free! (as have our motorcaravans for years). With systems in place to provide independent of campsite hook-up for overnight stops. At under six foot high Dashaway is eminently garageable - no storage charges! and you keep your Dashaway safe and secure, in top condition ready to ‘Dashaway’ on a whim! Even an electric motor mover has been ‘designed-in’, as standard.
The design ensures all facilities remain accessible at night time with decent floor-space for the Porta Potti.

Unique Wheelhome cooking and electrical system.
Dashaway has a unique to Wheelhome, independent all electrical cooking set-up which includes an Induction hob (a fast and efficient cooking system with instant heat control) and microwave (oven/grill optional), which run from the built-in Inverter and battery, or campsite hook up. Therefore many mains voltage appliances can be used including sandwich makers or a kettle. What is an Inverter? A device that cleverly changes 12 volts from the very high capacity auxiliary battery into 230 volts.
How long will the battery last and what about recharging? A decent evening meal plus breakfast and drinks - ie an overnight stop without hook up. However, if you need longer (2 days plus) specify an additional battery with larger solar panel. When connected to campsite hook-up, the battery is kept ‘topped up’ by a good quality battery charger so you can use the inverter as well as hook up. Fresh water storage is a 23 litre portable tank (on wheels). The water is electrically pumped to the stainless steel sink and drainer, via optional water heater. A waste (grey) tank is also provided.
