The Caravan Top
The top of the original gypsy vardos was a three layer design, with an inner layer of decorative fabric , a mid or insulation layer, typically made from carpet or felt, and an outer layer of cotton canvas. The new caravan mirrors this design, but uses modern materials which enhances the effectiveness and durability of the top. The new caravan has an inner decorative fabric of any design, but the insulative layer is a “space-age” material called Reflectix®. This material is aluminized “bubble wrap”. The bubbles in the layer reduce conductive losses and the aluminized surfaces help to reduce radiation loss in cold weather and reduce heat gain in hot, sunny weather. The outer layer is made of marine quality polyester canvas, which is water resistant , UV tolerant , high strength, mildew resistant and low weight. The combinations of these materials result sin a dry comfortable environment inside the caravan in hot, cold, dry or wet weather, and promises to continue to do so for many years.
