Cool concept camper

Check out this design for a new kind of expanding camper. Very clever!

Thanks for posting Janet. It's an interesting design and very different than anything out there.

At first I thought that it only had the one window in the back, then saw that the sides were darkened windows. Has a very European look to it.

I wonder why the designer used a pivot instead of normal slides? That would add more space.

Designers rarely have to build it. With the slides in, where's the cockpit? Seems like there's no room for the driver, and no way to get to the coach while under way, unless the slides are staggered.

This was designed as a trailer to be towed.

Doh! I should have looked at the "tires", but no tongue threw me off.

Nearly 50 years old now--way ahead of it's time. Sure, a standard slide rather than a pivot would give more room, but more weight and possibly more problems. As a small (likely 20 to 26 ft.) TT, this design gives an easier tow, but allows more family room.
