Camper For One, Please: Bufalino Concept

August 24, 2010


The Bufalino, designed by Cornelius Comanns (great name) is a little three-wheeled camper made for a single person. Or two if you like things cozy. Like, really cozy. I'm talking privates touching cozy (the best kind).

the minimalist construction is based on the existing piaggio APE 50 three wheeled light transport vehicle; a model chosen for its economic and fuel efficient benefits.

'my aim was to give people a better understanding of the country, the surrounding, and the range they have travelled. the travelling vehicle is always with you like some kind of a base camp, while also being used for moving on in an easygoing and spontaneous way.

'bufalino' encourages users to explore the surrounding off beaten tracks. meanwhile the furnished interior consisting of a bed, two seating units, a cooking zone, a basin, storage space, a water tank and a refrigerator offers the comforts of a home.

Call me crazy, but I actually want one. I've always wanted to get behind the wheel and see this great country of ours. Ooooor get drunk and have a 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' marathon. What? Baby steps, yo!

Hit the jump for a whole bunch more pictures of the last thing you'll ever camp in before being mauled by a wolf/bear/mountain lion (maybe I've been playing too much RDR).
