One probably doesn't immediately think of a MINI as a car to take on a camping trip. It is far too urban a model for that. But MINI and Airstream have collaborated on this design, created by Danish furniture maker Republic of Fritz Hansen, that will bring a little style to the old trailer park.

The concept features a MINI Cooper S Clubman pulling an Airstream trailer, the theme of which can best be described as "moody beach." Outside colors are "wetsuit" black with "lightning" green accents. Inside the trailer, the design is inspired by the "the outdoor lifestyle of surfing" and features a sunbathing bed, extensive use of wood paneling and a waterproof interior. The spare furnishings are new interpretations by well know furniture designers.

The set-up will be on display at the INTERNI DESIGN ENERGIES exhibition at the Salone del Mobile show in Milan which runs from the 21st to the 30th of April.

Posh, stylish, opulent, yes, it is. But it's still cheaper than a house. Hey, that's an idea! In these difficult times, you have to look at all your options.
