Buffalino: Squeezing A Lot Into A Tiny RV

Many people around the world are experimenting with living in smaller spaces; some are living in recreational vehicles, but they tend to be larger and consume a lot of gas. German designer Cornelius Comanns has converted a Piaggio APE 50 three-wheeled delivery vehicle, a cheap and fuel efficient platform.

He tells Designboom:

'My aim was to give people a better understanding of the country, the surrounding, and the range they have travelled. the travelling vehicle is always with you like some kind of a base camp, while also being used for moving on in an easygoing and
spontaneous way.'

'Bufalino' encourages users to explore the surrounding off beaten tracks. Meanwhile the furnished interior consisting of a bed, two seating units, a cooking zone, a basin, storage space, a water tank and a refrigerator offers the comforts of a home.

While it appears possible to do laundry and cook, there is no information regarding washroom and toilet facilities. More at Designboom.
