How to create an original product? Combine the two, different from each other. The American company Moby1is a producer of tear-shaped, off road caravans.
Ashley Grimes, a founder of Moby1 is a real enthusiast of beautiful design. He especially like “teardrop” type of caravans. Thus, he began to study the construction of tear-shaped caravans and finally dared to realize his own project. He knew a lot both about the carpentry and construction, he also studied the history of art and industrial design.
The idea was successful. Grimes and his wife tested the caravan during many trips. When it turned out that the vehicle its convenient and practical, he decided to manufacture the improved version of the caravan for sale.
Camping with a motorcycle
Currently, Moby1 offers four models of caravans. The cheapest one (in price from $ 6,500) is model C2. It’s a light caravan, which can be connected to a motorcycle or a bike, so you don’t even need to have a car.
The trailer is about two meters long, and its weight can range from 127 to 145 kg. The width is 1 m or 1.2 m. C2 is available in versions with low profile tires mounted on 12 or 15 inch rims.
Such size is enough to fit inside a double mattress. There’re also cabinets - some of them were placed inside the cabin, while to others you can get from the outside. The opening compartment can fit a table top with sliding gas stove.
Off-roader in the desert
At the opposite pole of the offer we can find model Moby1 XTR, the off-road caravan, equipped with powerful wheels and costing at least $ 16,500. It may be a lot for such caravan, but we get the vehicle ready for extreme conditions.
Adjustable shock absorbers, off-road suspension, 10-inch electrical assisted braking, off-road tires in size 31x10/50/R15 – those are the main features of this vehicle. Curb weight of the caravan is 680 kg, length - 2.7 meters and width - 1.3 meters.
According to the manufacturer, XTR has been built in such a way that you can connect it to the car and immediately, without hesitating, go to the desert. This means that everything you need is already included in standard. Many elements were made specifically for this particular caravan, to size.
In unfolded equipment you will find everything you need – a gas stove, sink with running water, hot water heater, outdoor shower, portable toilet ... not enough? The caravan can be equipped with a solar panels, air conditioning and a power generator.
XTR can accommodate 3 people, if we take under consideration only the cabin. There’s also a possibility to arrange sleeping places in a tent mounted on the roof! The upper deck can accommodate up to 4 people.
Something for mother-in-law
Moby1 offer also includes two other vehicles. Model RT (in price from $ 10,500) is a caravan somewhat similar to XTR, but without off-road features. According to the manufacturer, it’s "ideal for retired couples who travel to visit their adult children." If you have a little space in your home, grandparents can spend the night in the caravan.
XC Cross Country, on the other hand, is an off-road caravan, but designed for less extreme expeditions than XTR. It’s suitable for driving on unpaved roads. Prices of XC start from $ 12,500.
