Going on holiday in a camping car rather than renting a mobile home or pitching a tent? An architect found the way to increase the comfort of a camping car by transforming its surface and its usability!
We often associate camping with the sensation of discomfort. And yet the Dutch architect Eduard Böhtlingk created the fold out camping car named the canopy. This project was presented for the first time in 1985 during a contest in 1985 for the best temporary accomodation. Eduard Böhtlingk also won the Rotterdam Design Public Prize in 1996.
The following images show the usefuness of the camping car: the two sides can open and form a canopy tent on both side as and a platform that can be used as a pontoon. The vehicile is able to adapt to various weather conditions.
Here are a series of photos which present the canopy:
