A warm welcome to Tripbuddy !

We are delighted to welcome 'Tripbuddy' to Northshore Shipyard.

Manufacturers of this innovative alternative to the traditional caravan, 'The Ultimate Glamper' is built to the high standards of luxury yachts – from concept to living space, from image to engineering, nothing has escaped their revisionist approach.

The body has been designed as a one-piece monocoque shell, which removes any potential leak paths as there are no external joints. The glazing is produced by a company more accustomed to making systems for racing cars and aeroplanes. Unlike traditional caravans the glass units are set flush into the body and incorporate a triple seal system found in luxury cars to reduce drag and improve sealing even in extreme weather conditions.

Top-end computer aided design software such as CATIA has been employed for the engineering; whilst a full analytical engineering exercise has been conducted using MSc Patran, Nastran and ADAMS to determine the strength and dynamics performance of Tripbuddy™.
