Genuine craftsmanship never goes out of style
Polar har tillverkat husvagnar sen 1964 och mycket har utvecklats genom åren. En sak som däremot varit oförändrat sedan starten är hantverket, för äkta hantverk är detsamma som gedigen kvalitet. Och att det finns en bred och djup erfarenhet inom företaget kan du se i varje enskild detalj. Ingenting är lämnat åt slumpen. Allt är noga genomtänkt. Vagnarna byggs till största delen för hand i norrländska Dorotea där fabriken finns med eget snickeri. Genom att även inredningen byggs på plats har Polar full kontroll över tillverkningen och kan garantera marknadens bästa husvagnar.
Every caravan is exposed to wind and weather in the climate chamber
Polar caravans are famous for being hard-wearing and long-lasting. And of course that is no accident. Every caravan undergoes water-tightness testing in the factory’s climate chamber. There it is exposed to 36,000 litres of water and gale-force winds for an hour. During this time, an inspector takes humidity measurements inside the caravan and ensures that all quality requirements are met. So when you take delivery of your Polar caravan, you know it will stand up to whatever weather conditions come its way.
The people who work at Polar spend a lot of time in caravans and are constantly thinking about what could be made better. Together with our customers, we look at what could be improved, simplified or refined. Examples of innovations we have made over the years are new floor plans with a children’s room and fold-away bunk beds, Polar’s proprietary construction and insulation methods, and integrated mosquito nets in every window.
Centrally positioned panel with built-in DAB FM radio and Bluetooth to control many of the functions in the caravan, including the heating, the fridge and the lighting. Can be connected to the Polar Connect app for remote control.
Polar caravans have the most rigid bodywork on the market, ensuring secure road-holding all year round and on all kinds of road surface. Handling is excellent both on curves and on rutted roads. One reason for this is that the plywood floor is fitted with special reinforcing panels. Thanks to additional reinforcing beams, the load is distributed across the chassis and bodywork, meaning the caravan can withstand a greater load for a longer period.
Polar’s unique construction and insulation methods make the caravans fantastically water-tight. Polar caravans have the thickest wall and floor insulation on the market – up to 44 mm EPS. The insulation keeps the cold, heat and noise outside the caravan and, combined with the well-designed ventilation system, provides the owner with unbeatable comfort inside.
Polar does not use standard certificates; rather, every new caravan is individually weighed and issued with a certificate showing its own unique kerb weight.
The inviting, practical and comfortable cushions in Polar’s caravans are made in Sweden and upholstered in FibreGuard. The fabric is not given a surface treatment, but the fibres are woven in a unique way that makes it robust and hard-wearing. Perfect for young families and dog-owners. This technology is environmentally certified in accordance with OEKO TEX’s Standard 100.
Thanks to the way in which the bodywork, the overlapping panels and sealing strips are manufactured, Polar caravans are renowned for their excellent moisture resistance and are sold with a 7-year water-tightness guarantee.
After an active day out, it’s great to be able to put your walking or ski boots in the heated shoe compartment to dry. A much appreciated feature.
An extractor fan and a stove with four rings are supplied as standard in all Polar caravans. Optional add-ons include an induction hob and gas oven.
Locating all water pipes and drains inside the caravan prevents them from freezing and enables them to be emptied at any time. A heated drain is supplied as standard in all Polar caravans.
Polar will soon have been building caravans for 60 years. The breadth and depth of knowledge is being passed on to successive generations of master craftsmen. There is both heart and soul at the factory in Dorotea, where we come up with new innovative solutions and improvements and develop new models. All our interior fittings are also made from scratch in our own carpentry workshop
All Polar caravans have a ball valve for efficient heat distribution across the entire floor. The system has been adapted for each model of caravan and floor plan and uses efficient aluminium plates that distribute the heat evenly. The central heating boiler is an Alde Compact 3020 HE.

First in the world
Staying a step ahead is a big driver for us at Polar. This is a culture that runs through the whole company. Over the years, Polar has often been first onto the market with innovations and improved standards such as:
- Leak indicator for gas
- Wider caravans to allow for alternative floor plans.
- Heating system and double-glazing as standard.
- Individual weighing of every caravan to determine the exact kerb weight (which could save the driver’s licence at weight checks).
