PREFAB MOBILE FRIDAY: Deseo Caravans

by , 01/12/07

Deseo Caravan

To get the full emotional experience of the potential joy of riding around in a DESEO Caravan, you should really watch their online video, which has the happiest “I’m a European modernist on the road in the summertime” soundtrack you ever did hear. But in case you need a preview…



DESEO is a modular touring trailer that is as versatile as a Transformer. The video illustrates its many features, some of which I was able to decipher from the German with an educated guess. For example, “Multifunktionale Dinette” is a table for two with a pair of cushiony seats, all of which flatten out to make a long bench. There’s a daybed that turns into a roomy sleeping area, a compartment beneath the carriage for storage, a set of well-hidden shelves in the cabin, and an operable sunroof.

There are plenty of gratuitous glimpses of a wedding ring and tea for two, in case the target market wasn’t obvious. If you want to have your heart captured by the cuteness of this compact rambler, get on the website. It’s delightful.

    I think the multi-purpose spaces are super nifty. Very nice. I’m going to make some house furniture modeled after this.

    Great idea! Are they available in the U.S. ?

    The interior looks amazing, but I just don’t see myself hauling around something that big, especially with my Honda Civic. Instead, I would opt for a retro-styled teardrop trailer. They’re super-compact and can contain most of the elements the Deseo has (beds, cooking area, pull out table, food storage) less gas-consuming sizes. Although a “a family touring caravan for up to 4 persons” they are not, and are probably suited for shorter trips than the Deseo. But if I was a well to-do hobo, I would be buying my Deseo today.
