UFO camping pod that is out of this world

7589fe3b-afda-47cf-80a8-df0d4597907a
Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s a glamping pod shaped like a UFO, obviously, and it could be touching down at a campsite near you soon.

Inside the UFO Pod there's a seating and sleeping area, flat screen TV with DVD player, a PlayStation and surround-sound speakers, as well as a space-age light show.

It’s all the brainchild of Richard Rimmington of Hull-based holiday home manufacturers R & R Home and Leisure. He said: "I came up with the idea two years ago - I wanted to put a spark intop camping.

"The response has been amazing. The kids love it - and I am a big kid anyway!"


The pod went on display for the first time at Stoneleigh Park holiday home show in June.
