The Mini Clubvan Camper has been designed for a single person going away for the weekend.

Based on the firm’s van, the camper has a sleeping berth for one person and an extendable kitchenette, complete with stove and fridge. There is a TV, an auxiliary heater and a glass roof, which can be opened “for ventilation or star-gazing”.

The camper also has an integrated handheld shower, with water tank located under the load floor.

A statement from the Oxfordshire firm said: “The freedom of the open road, a dynamic driving experience and everything you need with you – the Mini Clubvan Camper has it all.”

The Mini Clubvan Camper was one of three unique leisure concepts unveiled by the British manufacturer.

They also showed off the Cowley Caravan, a two-berth “overnight solution” and the Mini Countryman ALL4 Camp, a rooftop tent designed for safari trips.

The caravan, which weighs 300kg, has a gas stove, a water tank complete with pump and a sink facility, while a solar module charges the on-board battery to power the fridge, TV/DVD and audio equipment.

However a spokesperson for Mini yesterday said there were no current plans for the concepts to make full production.
