SOMETHING for the compact-car buyer—here’s a compact traveling van that even can be transported by a motor scooter. The trailer neatly folds away into a flat box seven feet long and five feet wide.

Hinged sides that fold inward when closed up are pulled out to form the walls, complete with windows. The ends fold down from the roof. One end has a window and wash basin while at the other end there’s a door with a window in it. There are two single beds which easily convert into a double bed. Storage cupboards are enclosed beneath the beds. During the daytime, a table folds down between the beds, turning the bedroom into a kitchen.
