QTvan Is World's Smallest Scooter Caravan

The ETA (Environmental Transport Association) has recently launched an alternative for those looking for a cute, affordable caravan. Dubbed QTvan, this is a caravan designed to be towed by a mobility scooter and is small enough to be used on the pavement, but manages to accommodate a full-size bed.

The ETA warns that the QTvan is best-suited to local trips. Priced at £5,500, it also accommodates a 19-inch television on which to watch the ceremony highlights, and a drinks cabinet.

In addition to that, the tiny caravan boasts tea-making facilities and, in case any extra provisions are needed, the caravan is so compact it can be towed inside a supermarket.

“An increasing number of people rely on mobility scooters, but if you develop a fault or run out of battery power and don’t have breakdown cover – or a tiny caravan in tow – your only options are to push something that weighs the equivalent of two men all the way home or call on a relative with a large car,” said Yannick Read, spokesman for the ETA.

The ETA developed the QTvan to highlight the estimated 220,000 people who use a mobility scooter without breakdown cover and face the prospect of a very long wait should they suffer a mechanical fault or their battery runs flat.

“The £5,500 QTvan is the world’s smallest caravan and is so named because it caters to three peculiarly British obsessions: queuing, tea and caravans,”
the ETA explains. “If it is used to venture further afield, extra time should be allowed. For example, a trip from London to a popular caravanning destination like the New Forest would take 2 days, while a journey to Whitby would take one week.”
