From March 2017 the water heater is no longer part of the Platinum spec due to supplier issues but has been replaced with the winter cover.
Please note that stripe, side panel, fabric & GRP colours viewed online may vary depending on your monitor's calibration. Therefore the colour options shown are intended as a representation and a guide, rather than an exact colour match. Additionally, changing to darker colour side panels and GRP colours may affect the temperature inside of your Go-Pod on hot days.
Please be advised that chrome stripes and decals may show some marks or blemishes due to it's nature.
Items supplied may differ from pictures & listing due to availability.
The TV comes with its own integral stand. The TV is designed to be free-standing and can be positioned on the fridge top, table or in the awning. Wall mount brackets that may appear in some older images were discontinued in early 2016, when the TV manufacturers changed the screen size from 15" to 18.5". This larger size TV made the fridge access quite difficult in conjunction with wall mounted brackets & the TV's own stand proved more versatile. Wall brackets are still available, (at £45.00 inc fitting), if required but in our opinion, they can prove less convenient.
Items in the package may be omitted but can not be discounted for or swapped.
* Measurements and weights shown are intended as a guide and may vary, be approximated or estimated where necessary. Weights may change without notice and we recommend that you leave a suitable margin. If your car's towing allowance is low, remember that accessories ordered will add to the overall weight and you may wish to carry more of your load in the tow vehicle. MiRO specs are offered as a guide only and we recommend that your work to the maximum MTPLM of 750Kg. Towing with a braked capacity of under 900Kg is possible but should be done so at the responsibility of the customer.
Always refer to the online Owners Manual for correct operating procedures.
We bought the top of the range Go Pod, it worked out cheaper than buying all the extras in the end, but there are a few extras I wish I had bought at the time
The motor mover, yes, I know a Go Pod is easy to move, but when it’s on a slope, you have to ask the wife to give it that extra push, I wish I had one
The winter cover is very good, it does stop the Go Pod from getting that black stuff that winter always brings (plus it gives the stay cats somewhere to shelter)
I had used tear drop trailers in the past, they are very good for 2 people, but they have their limitations, like cooking, that is at the back and when it rains that’s the end of the cooking, everything in a tear drop is hands and knees, you can’t stand up in them, you watch TV laying down, there is a limit to what you can do in them
In a Go Pod you can stand up, cook in the rain, watch TV sitting down, pull the awning down for privacy and shelter from the elements (they have some really nice spot lights in them and you can reach them from the bed, you don’t have to get out of bed to turn the lights out)
You could go the camper van route, but if you want to go anywhere, everything has to be put away; you might lose your pitch when you get back
A Go Pod has everything a normal caravan has, plenty of storage space, cupboards, a toilet/shower tent (we haven’t used either) a double bed, a tent for extra guests (just clip it on the back)
When on a campsite, a pitch is the same price for all caravans; you have extra room on site
We upgraded the water container (and bought an extra one, never have enough water)
We have travelled to Turkey in ours, no problems, cruised along at 65-70 mph, no wobbling and you can even forget you are towing it, whenever we stopped people wanted to look inside (it should be called the TARDIS)
It’s cheaper on the train and the ferry, so the whole of Europe is open to you (on the train you can even make a coffee while travelling, its gotta be better than machine coffee)
We had the oven instead of the microwave (even though I am on holiday, I still like my Sunday dinner) it’s as if you are at home, there is no limit to meals you can cook on it
I use a separate gas burner for boiling the kettle, rather than the hob, just because it’s easier with a separate burner, I need both rings when cooking, and I also want a coffee
We bought plastic plates and mugs (available in the shop) just because they are easier to was, clean and are unbreakable, we bought clip together cutlery, just so we didn’t lose the spoon
The cool box can be used as a freezer, but we have just used it as a fridge
We bought 2 circular cutting boards, screwed them together, we now have a covered for the sink, plus a chopping board
We also bought the suction hooks from the shop, handy for hanging keys, towels, clothes, anything you want to hang really
The Solar panel is a real boon when wild or bush camping (plenty of lighting, both in and out of the Go Pod)
It comes with a TV, but I haven’t used ours, I prefer the radio on holiday
I also got a wheel clamp and a security box with mine (handy for on site and as it can be pulled by a Fiat 500, it’s an extra bit of security (you don’t want to come back and find you no longer have a caravan)
I did have to get my plug upgraded to fit the Go Pod (but my plug is year’s old, anyway)
I would recommend staying at the local campsite even if it’s just the one night, just to shake out any wrinkles and check everything is working
You will be told all about the A/C and electrical stuff when you pick yours up, but you will promptly forget them (but they are available on YouTube) and go back to be told again
You can wander around the shop for extra bits and pieces and they aren’t backward with the discounts, we bought an extra water container, 2 chairs and another table, with a nice discount (thank you to the shop)
When you are there, you can wander around, just looking, then go and ask questions, they will help answer all of them, even the ones you never asked (no such thing as a daft question)
We bought ours and it was white with decals on it, they now come in many colours, I wish I had the choice)
If you aren’t sure if a Go Pod is for you, I will be surprised if you don't come back and order one. which one though is up to you, save money and go for top of the range, work it out yourself, you’ll see what I mean
We bought our Platinum Go Pod in early 2016. We live over 300 miles from the showroom and did all our research online before deciding to buy one without viewing one. We decided on the Platinum edition because of the high spec and that if we bought a different spec and wanted to upgrade then it would result in. 600 mile round trip back to Southport.
We had never owned or towed a caravan before but have had no problems in towing and sometimes you forget you are actually towing. We have had great fun in our POD and wouldn't be without it. We are so enthusiastic about it that we now proudly offer to show it off to those who do not want to travel so far to view one and have now helped at least two purchase one. Love it. Happy podders
