Eight long years necessary for its development, but now it seems to be in the pipeline. It is Romotow, an incredible “foldable” camper.
It has a truly futuristic appearance, a rotating cabin and an integrated solarium: Romotow astounds for solutions and appeal, and finally starts production.
Designed by W2, the New Zealand architecture and interior design firm, the Romotow concept (reformulated: the former concept) will not be the lightest, most practical and economical way to visit large and small open spaces. Heck, though, from my point of view it's definitely the most stylish way to do it.
When its configuration is folded, Romotow is a caravan that quietly makes its sleazy figure of low environmental impact motorhomes. But the cabin has a secret.
The cabin is designed to rotate outwards out of the "frame" that contains it. And once the magic is activated, Romotow shows what he is capable of. It becomes a camper with an original L shape, or with an elongated shape, with a cabin raised above the ground, out of the reach of insects and so dangerous.
Romotow's goal is to create a mobile space that optimizes livability without compromising ease of use. This is why it works like a “Swiss army knife” for motorhomes, with many small “pop-up” solutions that make it a small luxury.
It will have its beautiful pull-out sun shades, a full bathroom, a gigantic curved window, a small solarium on the roof (I don't see any sign of solar panels). A very cool round sofa in the "living room" that turns into a second double bed and other devilry.
Constructed entirely in carbon fiber and composite materials to keep itself very light, Romotow weighs a mere 3.500kg. I can't tell you anything about the price yet because official data is missing: I sent an email to the company a few days ago, but they are more buttoned than my coat this morning.
Seeing the images, however, I would like to venture that the price of this little wonder is certainly higher, perhaps even a multiple, than "premium" campers. currently around.
On the other hand, it is configured as an object with a broader content, which can give its users the space of a camper or a summer apartment. Look around, you won't find anything like it.
The photos in this post show Romotow in the completion stages of the running prototype: the same for the interiors still under construction. We can see the use of acrylic materials or teak wood.
