The future is on full display at this year's Düsseldorf Caravan Salon. At Mercedes-Benz, that means integrating fuel cell and smart home technologies into camper vans. At Dethleffs, it's about exploring how electric power can impact the camping trailer. And at Bürstner, it involves making the caravan look a lot more elegant and comfortable with the Harmony 3 concept. If Bürstner's vision becomes reality, expect camping to feel more and more like home.
About as far away from sleeping under the stars at night and drinking cowboy coffee in the morning as you can get while still technically "camping", the Harmony 3 is designed to make you forget you're in a camping trailer at all. That won't actually happen until you're inside – the shell is a little smoother and prettier than the average camping trailer, but it's still a camping trailer, not a tiny home.
The interior, however, looks and feels very much like a home and not so much like a camper. Hanging lamps cast soft light onto the removable dining table just inside the doorway, and stone-look walls lend a rustic-chic look to the kitchen. The kitchen itself is equipped with modern features, including an induction cooktop and built-in coffeemaker. Just to the right of the entryway, a transparent wine case puts your collection on display.
