When on a road trip, hauling a teardrop-style camper is easy thanks to its small size. But with this convenience comes a distinct design disadvantage: there isn’t a lot of living space. Beauer offers an ingenious solution to this problem with their 3X camper. It uses telescope-style folding to contract while towing but will grow to three times its size when parked for the night. Better yet, the mechanics couldn’t be more user friendly—just press a button and the camper slides open in about 20 seconds. There’s no unfolding of furniture or any extra steps. You simply walk inside the trailer and enjoy.
Beauer’s camper has about 43 square feet of interior space when folded, and 129 square feet when expanded. This extra area is enough to fit a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living, and dining room, and it has a lot of the comforts you’d find in a larger mobile home. There’s a double bed, shower in the bathroom, as well as a dining table and a sleeper sofa. The kitchen comes equipped with a two-burner stove, fridge, and plenty of cabinet space with room for an optional oven.
There are a variety of color schemes available so you can properly express yourself while on the road. For now, Beauer is available in France, but they’re planning on expanding their market to the rest of Europe and the United States within the next couple of years.
Beauer has plans to integrate the 3X into a camper van called the 3XC:
