    ABI have said that the main theme of the ‘Concept Van’ was ‘the utilisation of space, inspired by Japanese space-saving design.’ The result of this inspiration has created a caravan with the ability to hold 9 guests. The way this is possible is through designs such as an extendable dining table, drop down cinema screen, walls that move with effortless ease, triple bunk beds and a whole array of fantastic space saving ideas. This truly is the future of caravans!

    The bedroom walls move at the click of button. This means that you can fully utilise all the living space throughout the day and at night time make the most of the sleeping areas. With the interior being very compact this makes for the perfect multi-functional space!
