Today’s mobile homes look just like regular houses, only about ten times smaller. Back in 1985 the Dutch designer Eduard Böhtlingk created another type of a mobile home, one that is called “De Markies” or “The Awning”. It measures 2.00 m by 4.50 m when on the road, but when you reach your destination it can be easily extended threefold.

This mobile home has won the Public Prize at the Rotterdam Design Prize 1996. We’re not sure if it’s as comfy as the modern trailer homes but it’s surely very practical. This could turn out to be the fisherman’s dream!
