MINI Goes Camping: Cowley Caravan and Swindon Tent

MINI has shown us a brand new way to spend your money and extend the ‘quality time’ you have with your Cooper, Clubman or Countryman. Both a "Cowley" caravan and "Swindon" roof-compatible tent have been shown today, leading us to believe we’re dealing with an elaborate April Fools joke… but we’re not so sure.

The Swindon tent comes in the form of a collapsible box for the top of your car. When you open the top part of the box, there’s room for two people, but only if your significant other is very… mini. This setup is supposed to be just right for "the English shires or the foothills of Kilimanjaro.” They can’t be serious!

The Cowley caravan can also be color-coordinated to your vehicle and provides a getaway for two people. This is designed for camping and as such comes with twin-burner gas stove, water tank, a refrigerator, stereo system and TV/DVD player, powered by a solar panel.
