Life on the open road just got bigger – the collapsible Opus 15 hybrid caravan expands to reveal a full kitchen and pop-out roof. The interior sleeps up to four and is kitted out with sleek bamboo panelling and built-in seating, while the rear of the trailer also folds out to create more room. Better still, it runs on solar-powered batteries for going off-grid.
