Pennine Pathfinder Folding Camper
(Sleeping Capacity 6 persons)
Pennine Pathfinder Overview
Our 2003 Pennine Pathfinder which we have had from new.
They combine the best of both worlds having a standard
caravan kitchen, toilet and wash basin and hot water.
However they have two permanent double beds and fold
down for easy towing. The catch (and there always is
one) is the canvas needs to be dried if they are taken
down wet. They fold with a wet pack and dry more quickly
than you would expect. The awning is enormous at 6 x 2.5
metres and gives a family loads of space. But the main
unit is quick and easy to put up with no pegging
required for a weekend. Lots of cupboard space so that
almost everything can remain on board. Beds can be left
made up with quilts in situ so setting up is very quick.
We use a small fan heater in early and late season and
have camped in temperatures of minus four. There are two
mains socket plus an external one in the awning and four
12 volt sockets. It has four spotlights and three
fluorescent lights giving a warm cosy feel.
Pros and Cons
lighter to tow than the same size
Less insulation than a caravan
Needs to be dried.
Expect to pay around £9,500
for the latest new
version of the Pennine Pathfinder. A
2003 around £6,000 less if you get a good deal.
Consider also the crusader now made by Pennine to
the original pathfinder layout and cheaper than the
pathfinder and a better colour scheme
Easy to erect, tow and store,
although new they are almost as expensive as a
budget caravan these unit offer something different
in that they can be towed by smaller cars and are
much easer to store at home, avoiding costly storage
