Porsches creative cogs are constantly buzzing. First, the car company presented its retro-futurist Fog 928 car in collaboration with Daniel Arham. Now Studio FA Porsche, a subsidiary of Porsche AG, has teamed up with Airstream for a concept travel trailer The camper can park in their garage. The towable carbon fiber pod reflects the soft gray colors of the Porsche Macan, its partner car, and both vehicles are scheduled to be showcased alongside the NEBULA 928 car at Porsche’s SXSW show from March 10-14, 2023.

Looking at the images, Studio FA Porsche and Airstream are thinking of an expandable roof for their two-wheel garage trailer. The design can stretch the appearance of the room vertically, making it appear larger than it is. Inside the roof, the roll-up fabrics and portable stands are stowed. Campers can prop them up, and once complete, the ensemble becomes a practical tent, expanding the exterior and providing the vehicle with shade from the sun on sunny days and a shelter for rainy rides.

Convertible furniture for more space

Studio FA Porsche And air streams Concept garage and caravan maximizes its interior space to accommodate two people. The modern design accents are created by the induction cooker and the sink, which also serve as a cutting board thanks to the removable lid. The warm LED lighting is hidden in the edges of the interior from the front to the rear of the vehicle.

The convertible bed saves space as it folds into two side-by-side benches during the day. Having these benches in place allows campers to invite more people into the vehicle as the environment can potentially accommodate four people at a time. Beneath the sofa bed, which also serves as the concept caravan’s storage space, is a pull-out desk with slash dining table.

Lowering the height of the concept trailer

During Airstream’s 90-year presence, its concept travel trailer featuring Studio FA Porsche marks the first garage-suitable design under its belt. The design team injects an automatic suspension into the chassis to allow the trailer body to lower and fit in most garages. This option simplifies parking the trailer in the tight parking spot, especially for those faced with local regulations or a lack of convenient, secure outdoor storage.

The concept travel trailer features aerodynamic improvements thanks to a redesigned tail shape that deflates while the trailer is in motion and a flush underside that eliminates drag protrusions. The trailer’s automatic suspension changes its chassis height to reduce drag. The use of carbon fiber for the frame reduces the concept’s weight and makes it towable for smaller vehicles, including electric vehicles.
