Campervan

When you're done with a day of off-roading, just pop the top and relax

The Action Camper is a drop-in camper that turns your rugged, all-terrain Jeep Wrangler into a go-anywhere RV. The pop-up allows two adventurous souls to explore the vast wilds and enjoy sleeping, sitting, cooking and bathroom use within the confines of their vehicle, wherever they wish to stop.  Read More

Odorico Pordenone expandable trailer by Jakub Novak - rear view

Jakub Novak, a Czech student from Brno University of Technology, designed a trailer that would look oddly out of place in a campground. Odorico Pordenone, named after Italian medieval traveler Odoric of Pordenone, offers all the benefits of a luxury camper van, while also allowing you to show off your stunning sports car. Expandable when stationary, the trailer strikes a fine balance between utility and beauty. Although Novak was awarded the Czech National Award for Student Design last year, the project remains only a concept.  Read More

It was over thirty years ago that Volkswagen first started offering “pop tops” on its camper vans. In the years since, the soft-sided interior height-extenders have become a common sight on VW vans parked in campgrounds all over the world. Now, Welsh company Overlander Motorhomes is offering what it sees as the logical compliment to the pop top – it’s the DoubleBack, a sliding insulated pod that extends the interior length of Volkwagen’s T5 Transporter van.  Read More

The Mercedes Benz Citan will come in crewcab and mixed use interior as well as panel van

Mercedes-Benz is to launch a new urban delivery van later this year named the Citan (“city” and “titan”) - the little brother to the Sprinter and Vito. The Citan will be first seen at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover in September. The new van will be available with petrol, diesel and electric drivetrains, and with panelvan, crewbus and mixed use bodies, and in a variety of lengths and weights. My bet is that there's an ideal base for a small campervan there too.  Read More

The Ecco Camper concept by NAU design

NAU, the design studio behind the 360-degree Immersive Cocoon we checked out earlier this month, has penned this streamlined, zero-local-emission Ecco Camper concept with a view to inspiring a new way of getting away from it all in the 21st Century.  Read More

The Home Core all-in-one toilet - toilet bowl, basin, mirror and a vanity table

Integrating the toilet bowl, basin, mirror and a vanity table into one, the Home Core concept has a storage tank that can be used to flush the toilet with water saved from the hand-washing basin. The water pressure on the unit can also be controlled to four different levels to help conserve potable water. Some might see it as taking the idea of all-in-one a step too far, but we think this unit would be great aboard high-end campervans, yachts, even aircraft, where space is at a premium and fresh water can be scarce.  Read More

The Wavebox portable microwave oven

The impact of the microwave oven on human grazing habits has been extreme. It can reheat frozen food or cook raw food in a fraction of the time required of a conventional oven and has brought the convenience of preparing food to new levels. Now a portable microwave oven offers those same capabilities to people who need to prepare food away from the kitchen, or indeed off-the-grid entirely – truckies, RVers, boaties, campers … . The US$250 WaveBox weighs just 6.3 kg (14 pounds), runs on mains voltage regardless of country, and can also run from a 12 volt battery using alligator leads or from your in-vehicle power outlet. This is without doubt a killer app!  Read More

The Opera camper trailer has every conceivable luxury: electrically-adjustable beds, hot a...

If you enjoy peace and quiet on your camping holidays, the "Opera” might not be the ideal choice. Emulating the renowned lines of the Sydney Opera House in Australia, this luxurious mobile home designed by Belgian architect Axel Enthoven is bound to get lots of scrutiny from inquisitive campers and passers-by... and it deserves all the attention it gets.  Read More

The SpaceCamper reconfigures for multiple uses

The SpaceCamper is not your normal camper van. The SpaceCamper was designed by young German designer, engineer and entrepreneur Markus Riese, the fellow who designed the first folding bicycle with suspension on both wheels (the “Birdy”) and founded German bicycle manufacturer Riese and Muller while still at school. Riese took a year off when he graduated, buying a campervan for 12 months of touring Australia on a surfing holiday. As he worked his way around the vast Australian continent, meeting many other campervan explorers, the concept of the SpaceCamper was born – to build everything a full blown much larger camper has into a T5 transporter, and to be able to reconfigure the layout so that it can be repurposed for use in multiple roles. As usual, he succeeded big time!  Read More
