Caravisio Caravan will Cruise You Into the Future [w/Videos]

The number of new caravan registrations on European roads has apparently been going down for years, and this downward trend is due in no small part to the fact that they really haven’t changed all that much, despite the fact that technology has really moved on a lot since they were first conceived.

Apparently, it’s a field of activity that has been lacking innovation, and now salvation promises to come from Germany, the home of Knaus Tabbert. The combination of two old names in the business, the company has now revealed a thoroughly modern concept, and we’re afraid to say that once you see the photos, you might actually really want one…

It goes by the name “Caravisio – The Caravan of the Future” and instead of basing its ideas on the conventional, the designers behind it chose to get their inspiration from yachts. This is visible in the exterior look, as well as the layout, which is more boat-like than it is caravan-like.

Two years in development, the Caravisio promises to not only be as usable as a regular caravan, but also offer a lot of technology as well. They say everything is controlled by an app, including the “beamer” (video projector) that works inside, projecting its image onto the sliding door that acts like a screen. Most functions are electric, and can be remotely operated, and it’s the only caravan that we know of with a “sun terrace,” at the rear.
