Get tuk-tucked up in bed

7db14aa6-bb51-4854-9a63-dc9aaeb71eb5

Is it camping? Is it motorhoming? Or is it something else all together?

Whatever it is, this converted tuk-tuk could be perfect for the solo traveller.

With a fold-up bed, sink, cooker, running water a fridge and somewhere to hook up your laptop, the Buffalino has all the comforts of home, packed away into a tiny mini-van. No more worrying about finding the perfect pitch. Just park up wherever takes your fancy and jump in the back.

The one-man camper is the brainchild of German designer Cornelius Cormanns and is based on a Piaggio APE 50 three-wheeled scooter. It is similar to tuk-tuk rickshaws that are seen across Asia. Currently it's still at the CGI prototype stage but maybe some day we'll see them on UK campsites.

If you like the look of this, have a look at some more weird tents.
