We are all avid campers here at the A.J., and we just love it when we come across super cool and different tent, campers and other outdoor goodies! This camper is no exception!
It is called a ‘Markies’ camper and it was designed and developed back in 1985 by Dutch designer Eduard Bohtlingk. The camper design was clearly well ahead of its time!
At first glance, the camper looks like an ordinary rectangular boxed camper, that is until the sides come down in a furry of awesomeness!
With vinyl awnings and collapsible furniture, this camper is surely an ideal home away from home. The awnings can be raised or lowered depending on the weather!
Want to sleep under the stars on a nice Summer’s eve? Sure, go right ahead!
The camper features four beds and removable divider to allow for privacy!
The camper doesn’t shy away from modern day appliances either as it even has a built in cappuccino machine.
Everything is designed so that space is maximized. Everything flows quite nicely in this hip camper!
What Eduard Bohtlingk has to say about his awesome creation!
“De Markies” (The Awning) was an entry in the “Temporary Living” competition 1985 and was conceived as a mobile home. On the road, it measures 2.00 m by 4.50 m, and once it has arrived at its destination its floorspace can be increased threefold in a matter of seconds. “De Markies” was awarded the Public Prize at the Rotterdam Design Prize 1996.
