Caravan towels that dry fast after use/washing

Most camping towels are awful - they just move the water around and don't dry the skin although the towel itself dries fast afterwards. I am looking for a proper towel that is fluffy(ish) and that will dry quickly outside a caravan. Any ideas?

I use a microfibres towel for swimming at home or travelling, you can't rub yourself dry with them rather use a patting motion. I find them fine and they dry very quickly. Sorry but they have flat pile not fluffy.

I get on well with microfibre towels, and do think they dry the skin, but my DH is not so keen.
Recently, I have taken to using Turkish towels for swimming - they are sold at our local market, seem absorbent, are less bulky than 'terry towelling'.

I saw these being demonstrated on Dragons' Den. I can't remember whether anyone invested in them.

These from Ikea are brilliant - it says "Medium Terry Towel" but they are not at all heaby or thick and quick drying (and cost £5):äjen-bath-towel-green-blue-art-00313195/

Sorry, typing on my phone - in case not clear - they are quick drying.

I too would like some quick drying towels for holidays and I love IKEA! But only in the morning on a midweek day!!
