155674782052658.pngnuCamp RV says it has reached an agreement with British manufacturer Barefoot Caravans to bring the compact travel trailer to the North American market. The partnership will support nuCamp’s growth strategy and expand its product offering to customers desiring a lightweight, molded fiberglass exterior.

The Barefoot will join nuCamp’s lineup of TAB, TAB 400, and TAG teardrop campers and trailers.

Barefoot Caravans began manufacturing its caravans in 2015. nuCamp says stylish fiberglass body and spacious interior (which features a full wet bath) have made the Barefoot an overnight success. In response to significant customer demand, nuCamp RV worked with Barefoot Caravans to bring the innovative Barefoot design to the North American market.

“We are excited to combine the unique Barefoot design with the hallmark nuCamp quality,” says nuCamp CEO Scott Hubble. “We are thrilled to have Barefoot as part of the nuCamp RV family.”

nuCamp expects production to begin in early 2020.

“This is a very special day for Barefoot,” says Barefoot Caravans’ Managing Director Cathy Chamberlain. “We have had thousands of inquiries from the USA and Canada and wanted to find a partner to meet that demand. We are delighted to be working with nuCamp. They share our same work ethics and quality standards. We know they will do a great job. We are really excited about bringing Barefoot Caravans to this new market and realizing our American dream.”
