This Egg-Shaped Barefoot Caravan Comes With A Bathroom And A (Really Cool) Mini Radio

Fiberglass and egg shaped campers have been popular for generations.  They include the Canadian Boler, the Casita and even the Egg Camper from Michigan. The Barefoot Caravan from Gloucestershire, England stands out as not only a stylish camper, but a functional one as well. The design was originally modeled out of clay – just like a sports car.

The 16 foot Barefoot Caravan is made in Britain and the company plans to expand to Europe and the U.S.

The Barefoot Caravan is made of one piece of fiberglass on a galvanized steel chassis and includes features like a stylish kitchen with solid oak countertops, a fridge/freezer and two-burner stove, an electric and propane heating and hot water system, a curved bathroom with toilet, shower and sink, and a 6×6 foot bed that converts into a dinette.

The curved interior fits a kitchen, bathroom and dinette that becomes a large bed.

Other features include eco-friendly windows with blinds, a 30 liter water tank, lots of storage closets and cubby holes and a retro-looking Roberts Revival DAB Mini Radio, all within a 16 foot long trailer that only weighs 2,000 lb.

The Barefoot has plenty of cabinets and useful cubby holes.

The interior was a challenge for the designers. Cathy Chamberlain, Mike Williams and Ben Matthews of Barefoot knew that the sexy curved walls would cut into the space, so they took extra time to make the caravan as functional as possible. The shower tray has been dropped down below the floor to give the user more headroom, the bathroom sink looks space-age and the upper cabinets dip down into the kitchen, creating an almost Star Trek vibe.

The kitchen includes a two burner stove and a fridge/freezer.

When ordering a Barefoot Caravan, customers can choose their own delightful body colors including “Duck Egg Blue” “Cotswold Cream” and “Graphite Grey”. The colors can also be chosen for the vinyl seat upholstery, kitchen units, and bathroom wall panels and curtains. Even the Roberts Revival DAB Mini Radio can be styled to match the interior decor.

The Barefoot can be customized with paint, curtains, colorful vinyl and even a mini radio (but not a Mini Cooper).

Currently the caravan is only being sold in Great Britain, but Barefoot plans to expand to Europe and the U.S. next year. The custom trailers are around $33,600 USD and come with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.

  1. I’d love to have one especially made for the Hebrew holidays of Sukkot.
    It would need a sun roof or uper window to see the stars at night.
    Maybe even have graphic arts all over the outside depicting these days.
