Less is not more, or as it is Bayram Koc puts it: “The Crucial thing is the size, but the Essentials is crucial.”

Koc is the managing Director of the company Imperial vehicle in the Westphalian town of mountain ash and has detected a few years ago the Trend to downsize to smaller vehicles, has also reached the motorhome and caravan industry.

With a spirit of optimism and Roadtrip-Desires

2015 Koc was with the prototypes of the Teardrop Caravan on the move, by 2016, the first hand-made sale of the model was done: a drop-shaped caravan in the dimensions of a small car, and thus far more compact than an ordinary caravan. These, as well as mobile homes are getting smaller and smaller.

The caravanning industry Association (CVID) has been around for years, that more and more compact vehicles are offered, but according to managing Director Daniel Onggowinarso the Trend is coming to a head. “We see that people want in a vacation apparently the Road trip, and character, and not so long stay in one place. To do this, especially more compact vehicles that are easier to act.“

The compact teardrop shape Mini-caravan

Kocs concrete idea, however, is ancient: “The Teardrop shape already existed in the forties in the United States.” Re: Emperor’s vehicles was the first manufacturer who realized the concept in Germany. There is the Kulba Teardrop a similar trailer – the cooking line, also under the tailgate, this with of 3.34 metres in length, very compact housing produced car in Latvia.

a Smaller space is not available for waiver

Dethleffs Caravan-dwarf Coco is a little bit bigger. The brand advertises with an overall length of 4.60 meters. The 18.800 Euro and an empty weight of 700 pounds listed caravans sleeps two, in addition to a living room and a bathroom, the Kippwaschbecken however, only from a space-saving and a cassette toilet. Also the Touring Eriba, a model in Retro-Look, remains under the mark of five metres, and offers up to four sleeping places.

According to the CVID, the new smaller living do without cars, especially in the case of the traditional brands on hardly anything, what it is not is also available in larger models. “The smaller room does not constitute a waiver,” says Onggowinarso.
