The American company Hitch Hotel has presented such a tiny mobile home that it can be stored in the apartment's closet between travels. After being impressed with this trailer, we remembered a few more mobile homes that will surprise you. And, unlike the camper vans we talked about a year ago, you don't have to go to the auction house or be a multimillionaire to buy RVs from this selection. Intrigued?
Hitch Hotel Traveler
Traveler is the most compact mobile home in the world. At least that's what its creators think so, and not unreasonably. Its folded length is one meter, but as soon as two telescopic sections are rolled back, the useful volume triples! And this is quite enough for a good rest for two adults. In addition to the bed, the Traveler is equipped with a sunroof, a 12-volt outlet, a USB port, and a little later will also receive an air conditioner.
Such pleasure costs 5699 dollars (429 thousand rubles). You can order a box at home without wheels - for example, to clip it to a pickup truck and save another $ 700.
Land ark draper
Land Ark's flagship model costs crazy money - $ 154,900 (11.7 million rubles). But where else can you find a mobile home that looks so much like a stationary dwelling ?!
Draper's mobility comes from only six small wheels. But many Russian dachas will envy its interior decoration! There is a full kitchen with work surfaces, a table at which the whole family can gather, a toilet, a washbasin, a shower and, of course, a king's double bed. In addition, Draper has panoramic windows and a hinged terrace. Is that the spa area is not enough.
It takes 3-4 months to make a trailer. Just enough to find a car to tow it. Something like a Ford F-250.
The Atomic Camper trailer was built by Bill Guernsey, who lives in Alaska. Having survived the plane crash, Bill used his post-crash recovery period to create this RV. In the end, the entire project took two years.
The frame of the trailer, which looks like a 1950s atomic bomb, is made of wood. Fiberglass panels are fixed on top of the frame, as well as solar panels, which provide the trailer with some kind of autonomy. Inside the red "bomb" there is a small kitchenette with a gas stove, a shower stall with a portable toilet, a table, and a couple of sofas around it where you can sleep. There is no full bed inside the Atomic Camper.
The trailer is heated by a water heater that draws water from a 75 liter tank. The hot water in the shower, in turn, flows through a 30-liter gas water heater. In general, the interior of a camper is similar to the interior of a spaceship from the 1970s TV series. There is even a blaster!
The advantage of the German Sealander over other mobile homes is its unique mobility. After all, he can move not only on roads, but also on water!
The lightweight fiberglass body, built in the image and likeness of boats, allows the Sealander to maintain buoyancy in waters with small waves - in lakes or bays. From the factory, the trailer can be equipped with a small 10-horsepower motor, which saves vacationers from the need to paddle. And most importantly, a captain's license is not required to operate such a craft.
On board the Sealander there can be a mobile shower, a dry closet, a washbasin, a gas stove, two sofas with a table convertible into a bed … But almost all of these are options that you have to pay for. The basic version of the Sealander costs 18,490 euros (1.5 million rubles) and, in fact, is a floating fiberglass box. Do you need sockets? 1259 euros. Table and sofas? 1299 euros. Anchors? 385 euros. Well, and so on. A fully equipped trailer will cost almost 25 thousand euros.But with him you can meet truly unique sunrises.
Austrian camper Mehrzeller certainly does not claim to be the most aerodynamic in the world. But in terms of design and customization, it simply has no competitors.
The whimsical look of a mobile home is dictated by its modular concept. The fact is that each Mehrzeller is custom-made. Depending on the wishes of the client, the content of the house changes and, accordingly, its appearance. If you need a wider bed, then the corresponding compartment will be enlarged with new outer panels. If you want more light, then some of the polygons will turn into windows. The approach for this technique is unusual, but extremely interesting.
Dry closet, shower, kitchen, bed, TV - of course, Mehrzeller will be equipped without any problems with everything that may be needed at a distance from civilization.
RVs are sometimes very cool luxury tents. An example is the Australian The OperCamper. When unfolded, this caravan resembles the building of the Sydney Opera House, reduced several times: hence the name.
Despite the tent nature, the "Opera" has everything to comfortably stay in nature. Wooden floors, two folding beds that can be combined into one large, water heater, LED lighting, kitchen, shower, heater, wardrobe, refrigerator, toilet - everything is available. And also - transparent sections on the roof to enjoy the starry sky.
But this pleasure is not cheap at all. For a luxury tent, you will have to pay about 35 thousand Australian dollars. That is about 1.6 million rubles at the current exchange rate. Options can drive up the cost by a few thousand more. Well, delivery will cost about 1000 Australian dollars (46 thousand rubles).
The company Airstream is one of the oldest manufacturers of mobile homes in the world: in 9 years, with a fortunate coincidence, the American company will celebrate its centenary. And for most of its life (since 1937, to be precise), Airstream has produced the same charismatic bullet trailers that can be seen in American films. She is doing this today.
Now, behind the iconic silhouette of the Airstream Classic, there are cozy apartments with a smart home system, a full-fledged shower cubicle, five berths, a spacious kitchen, air conditioning and other benefits of civilization. Since all this luxury weighs a lot, the trailer is equipped with two axles.
The standard 10-meter Classic has four versions, which differ in beds (with one large bed or two twin beds) and "mirror" relative to the front door. In any configuration, the base Classic is expensive - from $ 156,400 (11.8 million rubles). For an additional 15 thousand dollars, the trailer will grow in length by another one and a half meters, making the bathroom and the central room a little more spacious.
Straight Line Design Pet Trailer
Surprisingly, mobile homes exist not only for humans, but also for compact pets such as cats and decorative dogs.
The miniature trailers were designed by Judson Beaumont, an American experimental furniture maker who loves to create absurd decor details. Beaumont's motto when working is to create what, at first glance, no one needs, and what no one in their right mind will buy. Tiny campervans for toy terriers fully comply with this philosophy.
Of course, such mobile homes cannot be attached to a real towbar. Of course, they don't make a lot of practical sense. Nevertheless, as an element of home decor, such campers have a right to exist. Outside the trailers there are two bowls (for water and food), and inside there are soft bedding and LED lighting. In short, the booth is at maximum speed!
