Retro Inspired Camper is Coming to the U.S 
The Barefoot Caravan, a popular European camper, is set to come to North America by 2020. The egg-like trailer is roughly 16-feet long and features a compact living space that sleeps two. The retro design includes a small kitchen area, bathroom, and a seating area that transforms into a 6x6 ft. bed - which is a lot to fit into a small space; but despite that, the camper’s interior is reported to feel surprisingly spacious, with windows all the way around letting in wonderful natural light. You may want to see this camper for yourself - but unfortunately, we still have a while to go before the Spring 2020 launch. Read More.

There is a lot of opportunity at Joshua Tree considering the national park had a record-setting year in 2018 - more than 3 million people visited the park. The locals are worried that the hotel could take away from the charm and peacefulness of the area - so we are curious to see if this hotel park will be created. Read More.
