Caravan Window Wheeler
A Future Caravan - New technologies, emotional experience, transformation and expandability are the key drivers for this proposal.
A lightweight composite carbon fibre enclosure with outward views set behind four ‘Window Wheels’. The same glass technology utilised in the production of the FA22 Raptor stealth fighter jet enables a lightweight, high strength, high impact window. Sandwiched polycarbonate and optical glass sheets are drape formed / fusion bonded in an autoclave with additional new radial bearing technology allowing a remarkable ‘Hubless’ glazed wheel assembly.
Mimicking the accordion, the caravan can expand and contract to site conditions allowing for additional internal space. A drop-down social deck and hydraulic window / canopy system provides a valuable connection with nature and the outside world.
Connectivity to ‘Social Hubs’ throughout the world is a possible extension of the idea, where mobility and architecture meet to allow Window Wheelers to connect to caravan docking stations and places of social exchange: a caravan colony!
The ‘Window Wheeler’ would be the first of its kind and would inject excitement and beauty into the all too familiar caravan marketplace.
We would welcome discussions from interested automotive manufacturers.
