Trade fair novelties at the Dutch Camping & Caravan Jaarbeurs in Utrecht

23-09-2021

For the first time since the establishment of the Dutch Campfire Group, all models from Holtkamper and Easy Caravanning will be on display at the Camping & Caravan Jaarbeurs (from 6 – 10 October at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht) on 1 joint stand. “In 2020, the fair on home soil, which is so important to us, was of course cancelled due to the corona measures. And this while the TakeOff of our new brand Easy Caravanning had just been named the number 1 trade fair innovation by Campingtrend at the market launch at the KCJ in October 2019,” said Maarten de Roos, managing director of the Campfire Group and founder-inventor of Easy Caravanning.

Jaarbeurs Easy Carvanning

A real trade fair novelty is the so-called TakeOff Infinite, a TakeOff with integrated flexible solar panel on the tilting roof with a capacity of no less than 200W. Visually, this solar panel is hardly noticeable because the lowered middle section of the roof on this version is tinted dark. In combination with the lithium on-board battery and the energy management system, this TakeOff is therefore also ideally suited to weekend trips or days spent surfing at the coast when you are not connected to the campsite power supply.

A second novelty at Easy Caravanning is a new floor plan for the TakeOff with semi-fixed bed. The front 2/3rds of the full-width bench seats are designed as a comfortable slatted frame with a fixed mattress. The slatted frame can be easily moved up with one movement using gas springs, thus making the large storage space under the bed accessible. The rear 1/3rd of the bed can be quickly converted into a 2-person dinette for use during the day. On request, the footboard of the king-size bed (2.05 x 1.60 m) can be left open in the aisle, making it easier to get out at night and giving direct access to the portable toilet.
Tickets can be ordered online via this 👉🏼link. ANWB members are eligible for a ticket discount.
You will find us at the Jaarbeurs in hall 12, stand number 12.C010. For more information and sales addresses see www.easycaravanning.com.

Visit us at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf!

20-08-2021

The TakeOff from Easy Caravanning will be present at Europe’s biggest camping fair the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf (from 28 August to 5 September) on a joint stand with sister brand Holtkamper. In Hall 3, which has been newly added to the trade fair, the exhibitors will focus specifically on the themes of Travel & Nature and Equipment & Outdoor. “In this environment we feel like a fish in water”, says Maarten de Roos, managing director of the Dutch Campfire Group.  

De Roos continues: “We can hardly wait for the fair to start now that it is allowed – under the applicable measures. Our products distinguish themselves from campers and caravans by the ultimate feeling of freedom. An adventurous way of camping that has everything. Waking up with the smell of tent canvas, but with the comfort of a compact caravan.  The TakeOff is light and aerodynamic, and can therefore easily be towed by compact as well as hybrid and fully electric cars while maintaining sufficient range. The next generation of caravanning”.

“We are convinced that at the current rate of climate change, electrification of the vehicle fleet will take off in the coming years. For example, as of 2025, only fully electric new cars may be sold in Norway, so it is logical that there is a lot of interest in our products from this country. Just as passenger cars will rapidly become more compact, efficient and clean, the camping industry will have to respond to this. Weights, dimensions and/or emissions of mobile recreational vehicles will have to follow the trend.

The European distribution of the TakeOff is growing steadily. After market introduction in the Netherlands, Belgium, England, Norway, Germany, Switzerland and Croatia, further expansion of the dealer network in Scandinavia and Southern Europe is underway. “Winning two first places at the European Innovation Award 2021 has certainly contributed to this success,” adds De Roos.

See also our 👉 videos. Easy Caravanning’s TakeOff is a crossover between a trailer tent and a touring caravan and can be set up and folded down in less than 30 seconds. This makes it an ideal camping vehicle for people who like to be on the road quickly or just want to get away for the weekend. It can be admired at the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf on stand number 3E 60-01/02.

How it works [video]

05-08-2021

Last week we showed you how the assembly of the TakeOff takes place. Besides this ‘How it’s made’ video, we also made a ‘How it works’ video!

Watch here and see how easy it is to drive the TakeOff in combination with the fully electric Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge. Because of its low weight and air resistance, the additional consumption in practice (depending on the driving style) is often limited to only 25-30%. It is reassuring to know that the range of your combination with a fully electric car is still sufficient to go on holiday without worries.

First TakeOffs to the UK!

Last week, on the 2nd of June, the first load of TakeOffs was collected from our assembly site in Emmen by our English importer 3 A’s Leisure. Meanwhile the TakeOff is in the showroom in Wales and soon it will also be admired at other English dealers.

Furthermore, we are very pleased to welcome Nagbe Schwimmcaravan as our importer for Switzerland. Nagbe, situated between Lucerne and Zurich, is specialised in smart compact caravans and other lightweight camping equipment.

Production of TakeOff model 2021 started at new production facilities

15-03-2021

Responding to the growing interest from home and abroad, we moved our assembly to a larger location in January. In addition to a larger production hall, here we have access to offices, storage space and an outdoor area of 1,100 m2, which facilitates the logistics of the entire production of the TakeOff. In February, the assembly process was carefully set up at the various workstations of the production line, and we recently started building the 2021 models.

It was originally planned to start production several weeks ago. However, due to corona in recent months delivery times in the global industry have increased significantly. As a consequence, there has been disruption to the supply chain of the camping industry as well. Not only because of the pandemic but also because of the increased demand for mobile recreational vehicles: many people are looking for alternative ways to spend their holidays and therefore camping is more popular than ever.

As a start-up manufacturer, we currently take into account a delivery time of only 2.5 – 3 months, something that is virtually unthinkable for many major players in our industry. In addition, there are still a few free production positions in our assembly planning until mid-July. Are you considering the purchase of a TakeOff and would you like to be on the road this year? Then come to one of our dealers (by appointment only) and be surprised by the ease of set-up of our crossover camping concept. For dealer addresses and opening hours, please visit https://www.easycaravanning.com/en/dealers/. The TakeOff available from € 13.895,-

TakeOff two times 1st place!!

05-02-2021

At the beginning of January, we were proud to announce that we were nominated in no less than 3 categories for the prestigious European Innovation Award for the recreational vehicle industry. Recently, we have been informed that Easy Caravanning with the new camping concept TakeOff has won two 1st prices (!) as most innovative start-up and as absolute favourite among an extensive team of bloggers in the camping industry. The award ceremony, by an international jury of European RV experts, took place on Friday 5 February via a live video stream (Watch the video).

A beautiful crowning achievement of our work’, says Maarten de Roos, co-owner and founder of Easy Caravanning. We are convinced that this award will help us to spread our wings further in Europe. Besides the Netherlands, Germany and Norway, we are now taking steps to the United Kingdom. Gradually we will expand our European distribution, making sure that growth is always supported by a solid dealer network that can provide professional advice and service’.
