Caravans Are Cool Again

Kaisha one of our readers emailed me this recently and I thought it was cool and that you would enjoy it too.

Mobility and living on the move are very important themes of our fast-moving age. People want to be mobile but at the same time, have a strong desire for a lasting home and their own personal four walls. In the camper market there is strong demand for new design and personalized, tailor-made solutions. Individualist tourists want a caravan that is made just for them.

The solution to the problem is offered by the “Mehrzeller” – the multicellular caravan. Using the online Configurator, every user sets up a design that is unique, their own layout that they can identify with. The configuration is generated by a computer using the customer’s inputs, and then the final design is done by parameters from the architects to yield an attractive and practicable result. The caravans are produced using the principles of “mass customization”: this allows both the individual wishes of the customer to be accommodated while producing the caravan with series methods.

This is cool! The inside looks nothing like what you would typically see. I saw a different site for German made caravans and the insides look amazing. I thought it would be nice to get one of them.
Thanks for sharing this… another idea to look at.

“Twue Wove …” It is a bit large for me, but as they say ‘fully customizable’ – a perfect mix of my inevitable trailer home /RV and the architectural design I yearn for from Atelier Tekuto, Naya, Bow Wow, Endo Shuhei – see outside of Bubbletecture@O, or perhaps the mind of Aoki Jun.

Yes: total spazz in face of true love. I love the planes. To me: brand new visions. All cupboards filled with books, art supplies and one – okay two – coffee mugs! … so light, so bright – combating the gloom that ill-designed places drag my soul downward in. The first interior shot portrays a dream bednook – a small one of of these crossed with the genius off grid detail of the Galapagos / Tortoise Shell off-grid with solar, compost toilet, grey water system & water treatment so as to be totally free.

Thank you for the indulgence of my verbosity. (I really want to sketch out a take off of the 9tubohouse into something that fits our trailer profile!)

As always: my gratitude to one of the finest blogs about, and not to forget Kaisha: many thanks.

I like the design but would want to the interior look more “futuristic” with glow-in-the-dark tape to make everything look psychedelic and geometric.

interesting concept, but doesn’t seem very aerodynamic. Looks cluttered. I prefer the smooth fuselage of my Airstream.
