Full-fledged motorhomes are usually hulking in size, and that's rightfully so since you should be getting a large usable living space at the back when going for a road trip. But every once in a while we see very compact campers fit for solo or couple adventures.
We're talking about really compact ones, like the Bufalino three-wheeled camper concept that sleeps only one person, or the Elektro Frosch camper scooter from Germany that brings your tent by the bed.
But if you're looking for the latter but want a more sheltered space at the rear, Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce site, may have something for you.
Gallery: Everbright Electric Three-Wheeled RV
Introducing, the Everbright three-wheeled electric RV from China, sold by Shandong Everbright Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. It may look like an odd-looking box fit for a food cart business at first, but it actually practical things to offer.
Measuring only 3,800mm (150 inches) long and 1,500mm (59 inches) tall, this tiny RV can haul things for a pair and sleep them for the night. The foldable bed folds on top of the dining area, while there are storage spaces underneath.
The video below gives you a quick tour of what you'd expect from inside the electric motorhome.
As it is only propelled by a 3.5-kilowatt motor, it can only run up to 25 miles per hour (40 kilometers per hour), powered by a 7.2-kWh lithium battery. NEDC max range is up to 400 km (249 miles) as listed on the website, but we aren't counting on the accuracy of that. Charging time isn't listed, though.
If you're interested in buying one, the $4,800 sticker price on Alibaba can really be attractive but don't order just yet. The shipping fee to the US is $2,500, which brings the overall costs to $7,300. However, that amount rolls down as you increase the number of units you want to order.
