IH Leisure have been building motorhomes for around 20 years, but have now developed a brand new caravan range. Looks wise the Monopod 660 is a striking departure from the normal caravans we're used to seeing on the roads and campsites for years, and combines some clever manufacturing techniques with stunning design features.
The Monopod, with its 3 vertical panoramic windows at the front and large horizontal picture window at the rear, was launched at the 2011 International Caravan & Motorhome Show at the NEC.
As you can see from the photos the exterior is very different from traditional caravan design. The interior feels very luxurious and boasts rich and contrasting woods, with large airy cabins.
The IH Monopod 660 - launched with a price of £41,995 - is a 21 feet 6 inch caravan which weighs in at 1580kg. Reminiscent of the iconic US Airstream caravans, the Monopod 660ís sleek aerodynamic lines and iridescent paint job guarantee that youíll be noticed when you pull into a caravan site.
The name derives from the one-piece monocoque GRP body shell, a construction technique that supports structural load by using the external skin, as opposed to using an internal frame that is then covered with a non-load-bearing skin.
The Monopod 660 is currently offered in three different floor plans:
4 berth with central galley kitchen
4 berth with rear fixed bed (1930mm long x 1400mm wide/6ft 4" x 4ft 7" wide )
4 berth with rear bathroom and side dinette
