It Looks Like An Ordinary Trailer, But When You Drop The Walls… OMG.

On the outside, the Dutch-designed "De Markies" looks like a normal trailer, perfect for long journeys wandering the open road. If you look closer, though, you notice that the sides of the trailer have no windows, making the entire system feel a little bit cramped.

It's only when you arrive at your final destination of the day that you see what the De Markies can really do. It's a feat of good design and ingenuity that could change the lives of campers everywhere, and all it too was a few clever awnings and the idea that camping doesn't have to be cramped. Check out what the De Markies can do below.

This is why it has no windows: Both sides of the camper fold downwards, covered by two awnings.

The sides fold down to create more floorspace, tripling the size of the space inside the camper.

"De Markies" translates to "The Awning," and this design relies on two of them to create a cozy camping spot that's far more than your average trailer.

Surprisingly, the design was created by Eduard Bohtlingk over 30 years ago, a vision that may have been way ahead of its time.
