Motor Authority: BMW debuts camper that ‘breathes’

Listen to this story

From the bloggers at Motor Authority:

BMW unveiled a concept Tuesday at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but it isn’t a car. Instead it’s a camper that BMW’s California-based design house, Designworks, cooked up with American outdoor apparel brand The North Face.

The camper, which is compact and light, and somewhat resembles the BMW Isetta city car of the 1950s, is designed to be towed and can fit two adults. According to BMW, the design was actually inspired by its fabric-lined GINA Light Vision concept unveiled in 2008.

What’s innovative about the design is The North Face’s new material called Futurelight, a fabric that’s waterproof but permeable to the air thanks to tiny, nano-sized holes. That’s important as it solves the issue of waterproof apparel keeping your sweat in.
