A true minimalist trailer....

Designed for scooters, just think of the possibilities!

The QTvan is the world’s smallest caravan and is so named because it caters to three peculiarly British obsessions: queuing, tea and caravans.

As well as a 19” television on which to watch the ceremony highlights, and a drinks cabinet with which to toast the happy couple, the tiny caravan boasts tea-making facilities – essential for a royal day out.


If any extra provisions are needed, the caravan is so compact it can be towed inside a supermarket.

The Environmental Transport Association (ETA) developed the QTvan to highlight the estimated 220,000 people who use a mobility scooter without breakdown cover and face the prospect of a very long wait should they suffer a mechanical fault or their battery runs flat.

The ETA warns that the QTvan is best-suited to local trips. If it is used to venture further afield, extra time should be allowed. For example, a trip from London to a popular caravanning destination like the New Forest would take 2 days, while a journey to Whitby would take one week.

Till next time - keep on rollin',

I think that is the cutest little thing, but at 5 mph, it would take a long time to get anywhere. but wouldn't it be fun?

I love it! It appeals to the miniaturist in me. I'd need a bigger scooter to pull it, though. :)

I wonder if there's something similar here in the U.S. I hate laundromats and have a thought that I could convert a small trailer and put an RV washer and dryer in it and pull it behind Olivia.
