The MINI Clubvan Camper, the Cowley and the MINI Countryman ALL4 Camp can get you to your getaway destination and transform into a multi-use unit built for the great outdoors. The three campers were built for frequent adventure trips, and aim to prove that minimal space can be as luxurious and functional as a small weekend cottage. They provide shelter during winter nights and entertainment in nice weather.

While the MINI Cowley has a detachable caravan trailer that can accommodate two people and has a small shower unit, solar battery charger and a kitchen, the Clubvan Camper has a single-person sleeping room, a small kitchenette, a propane stove, a TV and a handheld shower. The third one-the Countryman ALL4 Camp comes with a roof tent that can be reached via a small ladder.

    In response to Anna\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s comment, I travelled the world for 3 years living on top of a car in total safety. No problems with parking…. no trailer. If it was raining, I just pulled into a gas station, and opened the house up then drove away with it. The car was tested on the Mercedes test track at 70mph with the house up! Also cut a Velosolex down, put miniwheels on it so I could hook it over my shoulder while walking. The car had a full size off road bike strapped on the back. It was so overloaded that M.B. invited me to visit the experimental department of M.B. everytime I was in the area. They serviced the car free and fitted all their new equipment (suspensions) on it as I was a perfect test bed for them. The ultimate way to travel included a speedboat \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”Goldfinger\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” given to me by a British boat builder because I and the car got front page publicity in a newspaper in every town I drove through. I am now building a new upmarket version that has everything inside including shower, kitchen and porta-potti. My next project is a house that expands out of a 20 ft shipping container.You can see a photo of the car on http://www.containerarchitecture.co

    well, they are clever and cute but-
    it will be something innovative when the car itself can be exploded out into a full room – roof sides floor. then noone would be homeless or stewed for exorbitant rent. just pay for parking tickets and a fine or tow/two.flat hunting in the bog derriere of galway ireland for four whole months . what i would give in free pa work for this car. And if they were stackable – they can be , there are car parks now designed to stack cars – a whole new way of mini living could evolve for upwardly mobile design conscious pocket stricken world trekker s :)
