Meet the Romotow T8, a unique caravan designed by New Zealand architecture firm W2 that has an inner section capable of rotating 90-degrees.
The rotating caravan – which resembles a USB stick when extended – has hit the market at £187,000 (NZ$375,000).
Designed by New Zealand-based architecture firm W2, the travel trailer is a futuristic two-part design. One portion of the structure is immovable, while the other can rotate to a 90-degree position at the push of a button to create a covered patio area.
Thanks to the integrated automated hydraulic system, the swivel action can be completed in less than a minute.
Designed for up to six people, Romotow includes a saloon with a kitchenette, shower, and main bedroom that can sleep two adults.
The dining area features wraparound panoramic windows, a fold-down table and two bench seats, which fold out into a comfortable sleeping area.
The Romotow luxury caravan is customisable with options including appliance upgrades, pop-up and wall-mounted televisions, multi-zone sound system, and an outdoor projector TV with pull-down screen.
