  • Description

    THE HOVERCARAVAN IS A RESEARCH VEHICLE AT PRESENT, BUT IT'S HOPED TO HAVE A COMMERCIAL MODEL AVAILABLE WITHIN TWELVE MONTHS.

    DESIGNED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE TO THE AMPHIBIOUS CAPABILITY OF THE AIR-CUSHION PRINCIPLE, THE HOVERCARAVAN IS EXPECTED TO BE POPULAR WITH PEOPLE WHO SEEK A MOBILE HOME AND A BOAT COMBINED. FISHERMEN AND HUNTERS TOGETHER WITH HOLIDAY-MAKERS ARE EXPECTED TO SHOW INTEREST. IN IT'S RESEARCH VEHICLE FORM, THE HOVERCARAVAN IS A CONVENTIONAL CARAVAN WITH HOVER UNIT AND SKIRT SUBSTITUTED FOR CHASSIS AND WHEELS.

    IT CAN'T MOVE UNDER ITS OWN POWER ON LAND, BUT AFLOAT, AN OUTBOARD MOTOR GIVES SPEED AND MANOEUVRABILITY.

    THE COMMERCIAL VERSION WILL BE CAPABLE OF TOWING BEHIND A CAR TILL ITS AMPHIBIOUS ROLE IS NEEDED. THE SCHEME IS THE BRAIN-CHILD OF AUSTRALIAN DAN REECE.
