QTvan a nifty little idea

QTvanThe world’s smallest caravan is being billed as the perfect solution for music fans sick of sleeping rough while queuing for tickets.


The $8,500 QTvan, measuring 183cm x 76cm, will fit on the footpath or inside a shop and has a bed, kettle, TV and alarm clock. It is being touted as having everything you need to make a long wait bearable.


UK designer Yannick Read named his invention after three peculiar British obsessions: queuing, tea and caravans.


A spokesperson for the company says: “Elderly spectators hoping to bag the best spot on the royal wedding procession route, but unwilling to spend a night camping on the pavement, can now buy a [QTvan] caravan, designed to be towed by a mobility scooter.”


“The QTvan is the world’s most environmentally-friendly caravan. Using a conventional caravan for a ‘staycation’ within Britain remains a relatively green way of taking a holiday.”


Why should the British have all the fun? Australian consumers and tourists, particularly backpackers, would jump at the chance to snag a compact caravan with some creature comforts, not to mention festival-goers.
