Leave it to a continent that's home to the duckbill platypus and the kangaroo to come up with a strange twist on RVing. Coming to a dealership in 2015--or so its designers hope--The Romotow, the travel trailer that twists like certain species of USB flash drives.
Down-under they call them caravans, and the Romotow caravan is like none other. Yes, it's still in the development and "computer generated graphics" stages, but wow, what an intriquing concept. Pull into your site, drop the gryroscopically-assisted self-levelers, and stand ready to deploy the--slide out? Nah! It's gotta be a twist out! A living quarters of the rig slide away from a portion of the chassis, allowing a whole new deck and, well, what do you call an "Arizona room" in Australia--to be used.
Aside from "regular" RV features like a sleeping area and galley, other tricked functions include huge louvered windows with built-in shades. The whole works is predicated on reduced fuel costs with built-in aerodynamic engineering and lightweight construction materials.
A concept of the firm, W2, Romotow will need a sugar daddy to help with funding for prototype construction, fitting, and sometime down the road, production. Meantime, check out the video to see how the thing works.
