As A Joke, MINI Releases Boating, Camping Vehicles
By Anthea Quay, 03 Apr 2012
Taking full advantage of April Fools’ Day as well was car brand MINI.
The company ‘released’ camping solutions for MINI drivers, called the “Cowley Caravan” and “Swindon Roof Top Tent”, and a boating vehicle called “Mini Cooper Yachtsman”.
The campervans Cowley Caravan and Swindon Roof Top Tent are designed to be able to sleep two and can be affixed to any MINI clubman or countryman vehicle.
The Swindon Roof Top Tent is a tent that fixes on top of the roof of the car, for its users to sleep in while camping.
Cowley Caravan is a trailer that has an interior that features a sleeping space with stereo system and TV/DVD players, and on the rear panel of the trailer’s exterior features a kitchen with twin-burner gas stove, sink with water tank, and refrigerator.
The Mini Cooper Yachtsman is a Mini Cooper with a ‘shark-resistant’ undercoating, silver alloy wheels, and silver rudder. The boat also sports a snorkel-exhaust, an antenna that doubles as a 20-feet white sail.
Its interior features waterproof seat cushions that double as floatation devices and a space for two to sleep.
We wish these vehicles were real, actually.
