This brilliant Bufalino Camper is a minature home that’s perfect for the minimalist voyager seeking to lead a contemporary nomadic lifestyle. The compact vehicle is kitted out with all of the essentials a modern camper may need – a bed, a basin, a cooking area, and a laptop desk. German industrial designer Cornelius Comanns wanted to provide a space for people on the move – a flexible ‘home’ to return to (despite the absence of a bathroom!)

The Bufalino Camper is modeled around the Piaggio APE 50 tricycle – a light vehicle with excellent fuel efficiency. The design preserves the trike’s engine and frame while outfitting the vehicle with additional amenities. This cool and economical alternative to hulking RVs shows that good things really do come in small packages.

    This is a no brainer. Simply re-design it to have four wheels. If you want to REALLY come up with something energy efficient create a pedal car motorhome.

    The three wheel design is hideously unstable and hence unsafe. So, I would certainly not cal it brilliant. Clever in many aspects, but lacking basic safety means it’s a non-starter, as they say.
