The interior is insulated while the rooftop 1,500W solar panels power the remotely controlled electronics and appliances. Based on a modular layout, the travel trailer can be customized to suit each occupant’s requirement, fitting piece by piece according to need.
The Grounded RV’s futuristic towable is expected to ship in 2025 with a weather-resistant exterior and modern aesthetics to leave most RV makers thinking. With all the fancy antics, the interesting concept puts durability, comfort, and sustainability at the forefront, which has left the outdoorsy in me excited.
Airstream (March 9, 2023) – Created in partnership with the legendary Studio F. A. Porsche, this concept features a range of carefully considered innovations and improvements to enhance the RV ownership experience.
The concept is the first “garageable” Airstream design in the company’s 90-year history. An automatic suspension in the chassis allows the trailer’s body to lower, enabling storage in most home garages. This capability makes ownership much easier for a broader range of customers, including those faced with community regulations or a lack of convenient, secure off-site storage.
The concept design features advances in aerodynamics, including a new rear shape that sheds air while in motion and a flush underside without drag-creating projections. The concept’s automatic suspension (a first for Airstream) allows the trailer’s chassis height to be adjusted to reduce aerodynamic drag. The use of carbon fiber in some components reduces the concept’s weight, making it ideal for smaller internal combustion engine (ICE) tow vehicles and electric vehicles (EVs).
One of the most popular holiday destinations for French people is the campsite. Argelès-sur-Mer, in the eastern Pyrenees, is the town with the largest amount of camping accommodation in Europe. In the summer, this Western corner of the Mediterranean sees its population increase tenfold. We meet two brothers who run a campsite in Argelès.
Argelès-sur-Mer is a town on France’s Mediterranean coast. It’s known for the long Argelès Beach with its seafront promenade. In the Catalan-style old town, 14th-century Notre-Dame del Prat Church has views from its bell tower. Valmy Park to the south includes trails, a 19th-century castle and the Aigles de Valmy bird zoo. To the north, Mas Larrieu Natural Reserve is home to herons, gulls and bee-eaters.
Pop-up campers, also known as fold-out campers or tent trailers, are camping trailers that collapse down into a much smaller, portable package, thanks to a partial canvas construction. Like a fifth wheel or travel trailer, pop-up campers often have a mess area, large mattresses and sometimes a functioning bathroom.
Rather than hauling around a massive, heavy trailer, however, a pop-up camper folds up into a nice, small package that’s easier to tow and maneuver than a full-sized trailer.
Giottiline is one of the most important Italian motorhome manufacturers, founded in 2004 and now a member of the French group Rapido, which offers a wide range of profiled, overcabed or full-size motorhomes, but also a choice of converted vans in a range called GiottiVan.
Cortes Campers manufactures retro-styled trailers using patent-pending biaxial aluminized fiberglass, carbon fiber and finishes them with marine-grade Gelcoat. In addition to their feathery weight, these travel trailers are extremely durable, robust, well-insulated and long-lasting. Since the camper lacks a wooden interior, one could count it out for being grungy, but your thought is instantly altered at the first look of the glossy interiors. The camper is not short on facilities either, it comes equipped with a double or twin bed for ease of sleeping people of all age groups – at the end of the trailer is a dining area equipped with a carbon fiber/Kevlar table, which transforms into a bed.
The luxurious yet nostalgic retro travel trailers are also equipped with a kitchen featuring a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, oven, a cooktop and a sink, and has a bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower. The trailer also comes fitted with HDTV, heating and cooling solutions and water tanks for fresh and gray water. The luxurious 17-ft travel trailer has lot of storage space, windows, and customers can choose from palette Gelcoat color finishes. Each of these trailers can be customized and shipped in 6-8 weeks from order from the company’s manufacturing facility in Cleveland, Ohio. If you are interested, the aluminized fiberglass version of the travel trailer starts at $47,950.
Camping is a hallmark of the classic American vacation—a sometimes laborious and challenging escape that promises one thing every time; a simpler life. Innovations are constantly being implemented to improve and expand the way we enjoy our camping trips. In this video, we will take a look at a few of those innovative machines. And, if you stick around, we’ll showcase the first motorhome with an inflatable over-cab area!
Norways Most Beautiful Summer Experience? Sunset Camping at Kjerag Falls 1000 m above Lysefjorden 4k June 2021.
Camping a 1000m above Lysefjord and experiencing the Kjerag Waterfall in a spectacular sunset from above, I found this experience to be better than watching the Yosemite Firefalls, very similar effect, but seen alone from right above the waterfall with a rainbow and the Fjord with tiny boats and everything before going to sleep in my tent.
