Travel trailers offer a lot of lessons for living in small spaces, using fewer resources and creating multifunctional spaces. TreeHugger has shown a lot of them, but never one the astonishing UEV440 from Australia's Conqueror. UEV stands for Urban Escape Vehicle but this thing looks like it could go to the moon.

The kitchen pulls out of the side, and has a two-burner stove and a double sink made of two drop-in bins.

The plates are designed in the shape of the sinks, which makes total sense. All the pullouts are designed to cantilever, so that if the trailer is on soft or uneven terrain they are self-supporting.

When all set up, there are tarps and flys and all kinds of protection from bugs and rain. Since it is Australia and can be dusty, every door is gasketed but there is also a fan that pressurizes the interior so that dust can't get sucked in.

They really think of everything; the cover over the spare tire is a barbecue.

The first part of the video shows them doing seriously un-TreeHugger things like crashing through the wilderness, rolling through rivers, to show how strong it is. Then at about 3:20 you get to see the setup, the interior that holds suitcases full of stuff and more. They really pack it in to this thing, it's more Lunar Excursion Module than Urban Escape Vehicle. Cheap at about US$62,675 as shown in the video. More at Conqueror Australia.
