QTvan: World's Smallest And Greenest Caravan Makes A Mean Cup Of Tea

ETA and Yannick Read teamed up to design the one-man caravan because they felt there was a gap in the market for those who drove mobility scooters. If your mobility scooter breaks down, your options are either to push it home (unlikely) or call a friend with a big truck (also highly unlikely in Britain). So by towing your lightweight caravan behind your scooter, you’ll be certain to always have a place to make a cup of tea, while you wait for assistance. ETA is also doing a promo on mobility scooter insurance right now and launched the caravan just before the Royal Wedding for elderly spectators who wanted to grab a spot along the procession route, but who were unwilling to camp on the pavement.

Available for only £5,500, the QTvan comes equipped with a full-sized single bed, 19” TV, radio, alarm clock, and book shelves as well as cooking facilities for tea-making or other drinks. The setup boasts a top speed of 6 mph on a 24 v battery with a range of 30 miles on a single charge. If charged using a renewable energy provider, the caravan and scooter are completely carbon neutral. Additional options include solar roof panels, air horn and extra-wide wing mirror for mobility scooter, satellite dish, gaming console, central heating, external luggage rack, and bespoke paint.
