For those who love camping outdoorsBeauEr, a French company, designed a teardrop trailer. can expand It can be tripled in size, creating a spacious living area with a bedroom, bathroom, dining area, and functional kitchen. 3X is the name of the innovative telescopic design. It has strategically placed slide-outs that can easily be extended to provide more interior space. The same concept is being used to design larger trailers and camper vans.
Measurements of the BeauEr 3X are approximately 8.5x6x8.5ft (approx. The BeauEr 3X is approximately 2.6 x 1.85×2.6 m and looks similar to a standard teardrop caravan, when unexpanded. This allows it to be easily parked in a garage and driven on the road without violating any traffic laws. The 3X, however, is heavier than regular teardrop camper trailers that weigh less than 1000 lb (about 400 kg), and weighs in at almost 2,204 lb (1,040 kg).
The design includes three neatly-packed telescopic modules that can be stretched, by means of an electrically-operated expansion system. Within 20 seconds of activation, the units fold out, enlarging the previously-constricted 43-sq-ft interior space into a sprawling 129-sq-ft area. The plan includes separate space for a 2-person bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and dining-cum living area. The newly-created space makes room for additional furniture, such as a folding bed and a sofa.
A small but compact bathroom is located adjacent to the central kitchen. It has a shower, cassette toilet, and a sink. The kitchen is equipped with a variety of appliances, including a 130L refrigerator, a double burner stovetop, an oven and a sink. There are also several cabinets and smaller storage units. The 3X model can be purchased in France only at a starting price of $23,000. This excludes taxes and extra components such as water tanks.
BeauEr will make the 3X teardrop trailer as widely as possible over the next three years. The company is also developing an expandable camper van called 3XC that uses the same 3X design.
