The Awning: An Award Winning Micro Camper

Called ‘The Awning’ and designed by Dutchman, Eduard Bohtlingk, this award winning micro-camper features fold down walls that vastly increases the overall volume of the space.


Nearly three decades after its conception, it’s still easy to marvel at the ingenious and effective use of space. While on the road, the camper folds up to resemble a tiny caravan and when on site it transforms to a footprint three times the size of the main compartment.



The additional temporary spaces function as living and sleeping areas, whereas the core functions – cooking, eating, storage and heating – are all housed in the main compartment.

  1. I think it’s very similar to the CMax System, an emergency shelter. Hope Bohtlingk hasn’t legal issues…
