Mobility scooter caravan built to beat Royal Wedding queues

Elderly spectators hoping to bag the best spot on the Royal Wedding procession route, but unwilling to spend a night camping on the pavement, can now buy a caravan designed to be towed by a mobility scooter.

The QTvan is small enough to be used on the pavement or even inside shops, but manages to accommodate a full-size bed and television.

Breakdown recovery for mobility scooters

Mobility scooter owners can now buy a breakdown recovery service for mobility scooters that costs £36 for a year’s cover. If the mobility scooter breaks down or the battery runs flat, a qualified mechanic is sent to you. The average waiting time is 39 minutes. More details

QTvan

The £5,500 QTvan is the world’s smallest caravan and is so named because it caters to three peculiarly British obsessions: queuing, tea and caravans. As well as a 19” television on which to watch the ceremony highlights, and a drinks cabinet with which to toast the happy couple, the tiny caravan boasts tea-making facilities – essential for a royal day out. If any extra provisions are needed, the caravan is so compact it can be towed inside a supermarket.

The Environmental Transport Association (ETA) developed the QTvan to highlight the estimated 220,000 people who use a mobility scooter without breakdown cover and face the prospect of a very long wait should they suffer a mechanical fault or their battery runs flat.

Short range

The ETA warns that the QTvan is best-suited to local trips of up to 1o miles.

If it is used to venture further afield, extra time should be allowed.

For example, a trip from London to a popular caravanning destination like the New Forest would take 2 days, while a journey to Whitby would take one week.

Order the QTvan

QTvan specifications:

Top speed: 6mph

Dimensions: 2m x 75cm

Range: 30 miles on a single charge

Power: 240v hook up or battery

Entertainment: 19” TV, radio, alarm clock, book shelves

Eco rating: The QTvan is the world’s most environmentally-friendly caravan. Using a conventional caravan for a ‘staycation’ within Britain remains a relatively green way of taking a holiday, but if the electricity used to charge the mobility scooter is bought from a green provider, the QTvan is entirely carbon neutral.

Price: £5,500

Optional extras include: Solar roof panels, air horn and extra-wide wing mirror for mobility scooter, satellite dish, gaming console, central heating, external luggage rack, bespoke paint, adaptation to be towed towed by a bicycle

    Iam eagerly awaiting a caravan (camper) version that can be pulled behind a motor scooter! Preferably 150cc and up. Please, try to make it affordable. I would hate to spend more on a caravan than I did on my scooter which cost $1500.00. My scooter by the way, is a BMS 150cc. Heritage.

    I just found your lil carivan and wondered if it could be retrofitted for my motorscooter( kymco 200).
    The scooter community is really growing in the USA every town seams to have a club. I am a new member but think this would be awesome for the rider for long trips and for your company. There was a video someone shared and it was from the late 50s or early 60s with a lambretta scooter and side car pulling a little camper behind. I’ve been trying to find that company or anyone who builds these nowadays …..do you have any info. Thank you
