A Closer Look Inside The World’s Smallest Caravan

If the QTvan shows us anything, it’s that you don’t need a lot of space to live comfortably. This mini caravan was officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the World’s Smallest Caravan back in 2015. It’s lightweight and can be towed by bicycles or mobility scooters almost anywhere. Through grocery stores, shopping malls, or even just out on the road.

The mini caravans were designed by Yannick Read from ETA (Environmental Transport Association) in the U.K. Even the name “QTvan” was inspired by British obsessions: queuing, drinking tea, and caravans.

They’re tiny – measuring only 2.39m (7 ft 10.9 in) long, 1.53 m (5 ft 0.24 in) high, and 0.79 m (2 ft 7.9 in) wide. But despite their size, the QTvans still come with a lot of the same features as a full-size caravan. There’s a 19″ flat-screen TV, full-size bed, radio, alarm clock, and a small drinks shelf.

Of course, there’s a kettle included so you can make yourself a cup of tea. You can also get extras like solar roof panels, a satellite dish, and a gaming console, among others.

The vehicles are short range, and best for trips 10 miles or less. They come with 240v power and are entirely carbon neutral. Unfortunately for us in the United States, they’re only sold in Britain right now. The mini caravans cost about £5,500 (or roughly $7100 in USD). But luckily we can still get a closer look in this video from Guinness World Records:

What a sweet build! It would be awesome to see these come here to the U.S. What do you think? Would you love one of these mini caravans?
