A caravan or a ‘Transformer’? The Whale Trailer Cabin is a small caravan that takes modularity to the extreme

Is named Whale Trailer Cabin, has been conceived in China and is a small caravan that carries the modularity to little-seen limits. Thus, it is designed to offer the maximum living space when it is used as a home and at the same time to be as compact as possible when it is towed or has to be maneuvered with it.

Unfortunately for now it is a prototype, but it could well go into production. Not in vain has she been the winner this 2021 Red Dot Design Award.

Be that as it may, it joins other proposals for camper recreational vehicles with modularity by flag, such as the Nissan NV350 Office Pod Concept van or this motorhome baptized as Opperland by Haaks Campers.

The fourth dimension

Designer Hu Yong is the one who sculpted and devised this Whale Trailer Cabin, whose denomination is indebted to its rounded outer lines since imitate the shapes of a whale.

Although it boasts a compact size, being a design exercise at the moment, its dimensions are not revealed. However, its creator details that it gives space up to for four persons.

The physiognomy of the Whale Trailer Cabin changes completely when you start deploying modules, such as the rear where a bedroom with a double bed is hidden which is separated from the living room.

Although no recreations of the interior have been published, in the main area it is understood that it has the classic folding table and sofa that can be converted into a second bed. Hence the four occupants.

Also, according to its designer, it equips a small toilet the interior that, we deduce, is equipped with the usual in this type of recreational trailers (WC, washbasin and shower). This room can be seen behind the classic sliding curtain door.

For his part the kitchen, can be deployed in another module made up of two shelves, in such a way that you can cook outside in the style of camper trailers. As can be seen, they can have camping gas fires or a portable fridge, as well as being used to store various utensils.

What’s more the roof of the main station is deployable, gaining space so that the occupants can stand. Likewise, the ceiling of the bedroom module, in turn adding more centimeters to the ceiling of this second room.

Both the living room and the bedroom are equipped with windows, while the roof tent of the main module has two other openings adding more light to this area. For its part, the door and the stairs to access its interior, are also folding.

It remains to be seen if this revolutionary caravan sees the light and is launched on the market. If it does, we hope that it will do so beyond the Chinese borders because the proposal is the least interesting.
