Pop-ups and slide outs used to be oddities but now they’re everyday RV features. Soon the swanky BeauEr 3X telescoping pop-out trailer could be a common sight too.
This telescoping pop-out trailer design gives you three times the living room.
A stylish, French-made expandable RV is making a splash in Europe and odds are that many Americans will love it too. Here’s why:
A Tiny Telescoping Pop-Out Trailer with Big Features
The BeauEr 3X was created in 2009 by a Eric Beau, a French inventor who had one simple goal: to create a lightweight towable RV but with all the standard features found in bigger, heavier rigs. Of course this meant adding a slide-out type of living space to create a more comfortable home on wheels.
Everything fits together, no assembly required!
This designer took a unique approach: he patented a brand new “telescopic principle” RV design. His pop-out trailer has two telescopic modules on either side of a central module that when deployed, offers three times the living space.
It has all the features of a bigger RV.
The telescoping pop-out trailer system works by way of electrical actuators powered from a standard 12 V car battery or 220 V electrical hookup.
“The principle is clever but straightforward,” says the English version of Bauer’s website. “In the folded position, furniture fit together in their opposite. Once unfolded, this furniture is set up automatically without any manipulation.”
Stylish and sleek decor for swanky RV living.
It only takes one person to unfold the entire unit – in less than 20 seconds! Up to four people can live in the unit which features 129-square feet of space packed with standard and stylish features you’d expect in a larger RV.
Sleeps up to four people, comfortably!
The BeauEr 3X has a full bathroom, kitchen galley with refrigerator, sink and cooktop as well as two double beds. Upgrade options include a furnace and water heater.
The BeauEr 3X even has a full bathroom on board.
When the pop-outs aren’t deployed, the BeauEr 3X lightweight telescoping pop-out trailer isn’t any wider than a typical Euopean car (1.90 m ).
Do pop-out trailers get any more elegant than this?
And because the polyester shell keeps the unit’s overall weight down to about 2,200 pounds, it’s super easy to handle through any driving or weather conditions.
For now the BeauEr can only be seen traveling along French and European roads. Although it carries a higher than average price tag for a lightweight trailer (about $28,000 USD), based on the futuristic design and its ability be towed by practically any normal passenger vehicle, we predict that it won’t take long to catch on in North America too.
