Compact living is an art unto itself and once you mastered it the holiday options that open up to you are limitless. As we welcome a lot of younger holiday makers into the world of caravan holidays we are seeing weight restrictions come into play, as well as a slight fear of towing. With the arrival of the Camp365 we may see thee issues slip away.

Fold out vans are not a new concept and it has never been as popular as your "traditional" caravan, camper or motorhome. With more and more younger people flocking to campsites I can see the fold out making a bit of a come back: smaller, lighter and something very different to the traditional.

The all new Camper365 is very much catered toward a younger market, and I can see traditionalists not being a fan. But for newcomers or young folk this is a great little tourer.

Price wise it is very competitive and coming in at around the £15,000 I can see a lot of people using this as their first van.

Due to its size and weight it has been said than even a car such as the electric Toyota Prius is enough to comfortably tow.

The engineering process focussed on delivering a trailer that has a low centre of gravity and has an aerodynamic design for slipstreaming and remarkable fuel economy with all towing vehicles.

The tow behind pop up camper concept is super spacious and I really like the innovative design, which allows for quite a lot of space one fully erected. The origami style fold out system is quite a sight. You won't believe what comes out from such a small little folded trailer.

For anyone who does not have a driveway or garage this is ideal as it is so much smaller than a caravan, and we know the issues some neighbours have with seeing a caravan.

There have been some instances where people have been very much turned off of the idea of a fold out due to construction time and the effort that this entails.

Camper365 estimate that this trailer will take around 10 minutes to set up and does not require any tools to assemble. Just the two hand you were born with.

Once you have fully set the trailer up you are presented with a 12ft wide and 8 foot deep living space with a foot to head distance of 7ft, so if you are a giant you may need to stay seated once inside. A spacious 700 cubic square feet from such a small trailer really is impressive.
