Boasting a sleek tear-drop shape and zero local emissions, this camper concept from NAU could put current motorhome manufacturers out of business.
Depending on the size, year, make and model, today’s petroleum-powered recreational vehicle gets between 4 and 12 miles to the gallon. And even if you’re able to pay this excruciating price just to arrive at your destination, you’ll probably have to pay even more for a place to park it and plug it in…otherwise most of the bells and whistles won’t even work.
Not so with the NAU Ecco Camper.
Featuring an aluminum and glass exterior that forms a teardrop shape, the Ecco Camper is so aerodynamic, it makes the tall, box-like RVs of today look almost ridiculous. Although the vehicle can be charged via a standard 240 V outlet, its expandable roof also features integrated solar panels to supplement the power supply when camping in the backcountry.
“Once you have found that perfect resting place,” writes Gizmag, “the cap of the vehicle opens upwards to expand the interior space, whilst transparent panels create an observatory for star gazing at night. Foldable beds, toilet and private rear access complete this camping concept by providing all the necessary comforts for outdoor adventures.”
