The 'Romotow' offers adventure with room to move

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the fast approaching Christmas and summer holidays in the Southern Hemisphere, leading design architects, W2, in Christchurch New Zealand have launched the next frontier in mobile living – called the Romotow (http://www.romotow.com/).

The Romotow is created for today's innovation savvy generation, with a contemporary mobile living design that delivers an experience in a class of its own. Its design is a radical departure from the boxy and cumbersome hybrid travel trailer and caravan concept of yesteryear.

In the last decade the motor caravan lifestyle has experienced a major surge in popularity. Statistics from the likes of the National Caravan Council in the UK, the Caravan and Camping Association in Australia, the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association and others all confirm that the caravan, motorhome and camping industry is the fastest growing domestic tourism sector. Market research in the United States shows the 900 recreational vehicle (RV) manufacturers generate a combined annual revenue of $10 billion. This increase has been enhanced by improvements in both caravan quality and campsite facilities making mobile living possible at any time of the year.

To capitalise on this burgeoning market W2 directors Stuart Winterbourn and Matt Wilkie designed the Romotow - a head-turning patented innovation that promises a stress free, spacious and comfy escape for all sorts of exciting outdoor adventures. Its point of difference is a living area that uniquely extends out from its sheltered exterior, with an ingenious automated swivel, to reveal up to 70% more floor area to enjoy.

"Often the negatives of campervans and RV's (compared with larger tents) are the expense and lack of covered transitional space. While looking at the movement of a Swiss army knife an idea came to us on how we could create this covered area. We then sketched a 'mobile living' unit that could be anything: a caravan, a mobile cafe, a home office, a weekend escape, or a new lifestyle of discovery and wonder for retirees - and from that moment the concept took on a life of its own," director Matt Wilkie explained.

Features include aerodynamic and lightweight construction for increased fuel efficiency and towing stability, power assisted braking, pneumatic shocks, gyro assisted self-levelling pads and struts, and a rear mounted camera. Fit-out variations can include a sheltered BBQ deck area for entertaining and relaxing, a windbreak, sliding doors, louvered windows, stylish and easy clean furniture, and more.

W2 is now approaching leading caravan manufacturers with the view of building a prototype for testing and fitting and eventual production, and is seeking feedback from the public as they refine the designs. Find out more at www.romotow.com and like us on facebook.com/romotow.
