FLEX CAMPING DELUXE
Camping, clamping, backpacking flashpacking…. It doesn’t matter what kind of traveler you are these days. However, one thing is clear: people are less interested in owning stuff these days and don’t like to be tight down to one particular space. We call them urban nomads. They use their space as a blanc canvas and take matters into their own hands.
With summer break just around the corner and the festival season already starting, we decided to dive deeper into the mobile camper economy. We think these mobile ‘homes’ inspire to go on an adventure right away!
What started as a joke on April first turned into three new concepts for MINI one year later, namely The All4 Camp. This car is every adventurer’s dream, as it is equally suited for quiet camping trip as well as a pilgrimage to Burning Man. A festival goer can simply pack up their bag and jump in this behemoth of a car to go see their idol, knowing that their 4-wheeled hotel room is waiting just outside the festival terrain.
The design is inspired by the safari outback adventures, intended to keep users safe from the man-eating animals that live out there in the wild. You could argue that this shows a cunning resemblance with your average festival. Whenever you’re done for the day and decide it's time to turn off the lights, just stumble back to your car and climb up the ladder. You won't have to be afraid of people accidentally falling into your tent. Safe 'n sound!
We do realise that this car is mostly for the privileged ones, but this doesn’t mean you can’t get creative yourself. Just check out this family's wicked Volkswagen bus, transformed into an electric mobile home using solar energy.
No excuses, go out and be an explorer of the world. Check out those who went before you down below. Warning: may contain stock imagery. ;)
