Some camper caravans think outside the box, and the newly produced Romotow is one of them. It's one of the most original travel trailers on the market with a sleek, futuristic design that rotates to reveal another part of its layout. When swiveled open, it has a covered deck alongside a sleeper main cabin for four to six people.
The awe-inspiring design is made possible with an automatic hydraulic system. It's powered by a lithium battery that's charged with help from solar panels on the trailer's roof. The mechanism pushes the cabin outward 90 degrees, creating an L-shape and making the deck accessible. The previously hidden patio space has a teak-like appearance with plenty of room for outdoor furniture. Additionally, there’s an option for built-in conveniences like a fold-down bench seat, a table built into its rounded front, or mesh side walls to keep the bugs away.
Camper caravans are not known for having a lot of space, but there are ways to make a small area feel larger. Romotow does this with wraparound windows in its dining area. The dinette doubles as sleeping quarters, transforming into a single double bed or two single beds. Additionally, there’s a lift-away double bed.
Past the dining area, there is a kitchenette that’s available in two styles depending on the needs of the traveler. Regardless of what someone chooses, there’s a full dry bathroom behind it and a private bedroom—complete with a closet and two circular windows—beyond that.
Add-ons like additional solar panels, mounted TVs, and an outdoor projection system make the Romotow comfortable for more than just a road trip every once and a while; it’s something someone could live in on a full-time basis.
The Romotow is manufactured in New Zealand and has a starting price of NZ$429,000 (about US$270,000).
