Iconic 1930s Design Hits The Caravan Market

February 21, 2013

It’s wonderful to see practical vehicles being designed with a little bit of thought going into their appearance, the new Bowlus Road Chief shows this in bundles.

The iconic 1930s caravan has been revived by Canadian tech entrepreneurs, updating a version of the Bowlus Road Chief in what they call a “revival of an Art Moderne style with 21st century touches”.

The original Bowlus was designed in the 1930s based on the principles of aircraft of the time, with a streamlined aluminium body. The design classic of the popular ‘Airstream’ held similar design concepts and today’s modern equivalent looks equally fantastic.

The latest designers,  John Long and Helena Mitchell were inspired to remake the model, maintaining a retro interior with modern touches, including stainless steel counter tops, LED lighting and wireless antennas to bring it into the 21st century.

However, although the caravan sleeps four and you receive a celebratory bottle of champagne on purchase, this newly in vogue caravan will set you back a whopping $100,000 (£64,771). Is it worth the money?
