‘Great things come in Small packages’, a quote that we’ve always heard and now it’s being proven. This expandable caravan was designed by Eduard Bohtlingk in 1985. It’s called ‘The Markies’ (or ‘Marquis’ in English) – compact camper has a spacious bedroom for four, a living area, kitchen, and a patio…..Oh my God!! is all we can say and that’s just the beginning.
The Markies was recently an award winner at Urban Campsite, a festival in The Netherlands featuring art and architecture in a campsite setting. It’s an expandable caravan with folding collapsible walls. The accordion-like device can expand to create two new rooms, a living room with a clear panel so that you will feel at one with nature, and a bedroom, with an enclosed panel for privacy. The main interior also features a small kitchen with seating and electrical capabilities. When you are done with your trip, just fold up the sides and drive away. No fuss…..No muss.
