When choosing a caravan, we often have to make a compromise. When traveling, we would like the towed vehicle to be small and maneuverable. But a camping field could use a little more space inside. Eric Beau seems to have found the solution!

The BeauER company was founded quite recently, only in 2012. As is usual, one person's problem contributed to her birth. Eric Beau dreamed of a caravan that is small but comfortable inside. And when he found that what he was looking for could not be found on sale, he decided to construct one. The effect exceeded his wildest expectations, which is why the French started a company and now he is trying to earn money on his trailer.

Little table, cover yourself

When the BeauER X3 trailer is folded up, it looks like a normal little trailer. It is 2 meters high and 3.5 meters long, and its rounded upper part is reminiscent of teardrop trailers from the 1960s. However, it is enough to press a button and the caravan will reach a length of 4.6 m within 25 seconds . Witchcraft? Not exactly. This is the biggest secret of the BeauER 3X.


The trailer folds and unfolds together with the furniture , which also changes its position during this operation. Inside, you will find everything that should be in the caravan, plus an interesting, modern design.

The kitchen part and the toilet are placed in the middle module. There was a place there, among others for two-burner gas cooker, sink and refrigerator . In one of the side modules there is a sofa that can be transformed into a double bed, and on the opposite side of the caravan there is a three-sided sofa with a table in front of it. But the table and sofa can also be converted into a sleeping place for two. In total, the caravan can be a 12-meter flat for up to four people.

It is worth noting that you do not need to install any interior elements on your own , either after unfolding the trailer or before folding it. Thanks to the hydraulic installation, everything "does itself", namely, with the use of an electric motor that can be powered by the car's battery or an ordinary socket.

Surprising interior

Building a trailer that weighs just a ton would not be possible without the use of lightweight materials. The construction uses, among others polyester, and ... hemp was used to insulate the walls. The permissible total weight is 1,200 kg.


But when we go inside, we will not feel this weight saving. We have a toilet with a shower, a 130-liter fridge, a 20-liter water and sewage tank, a water pump, and the bed has the standard dimensions of 140 x 190 cm . There are also 230 V and 12 V electric sockets.

The wall with a roller shutter (instead of a door) between the bedroom and the kitchen area looks interesting. The wall is filled with a nicely framed set of cabinets , and their colors depend on the ingenuity of customers - there are many possibilities. It has to be admitted that the interior looks remarkable in the visualizations and this is perhaps an important reason why women are apparently more interested in caravans than other caravans.

Ambitious plans

Eric Beau says the biggest risk was in valuation. The designer waited with bated breath for the suppliers' offers, because their calculations were to determine whether the production of this trailer would make economic sense. Beau was afraid that the final price would be too high for the customers. In the end, the price of the basic version was set at 24 thousand. Euro , which does not differ much from the prices of many other, much less innovative caravans. But still more inquiries and orders come from the manufacturer from the United States than from Europe.


In 2016, the new 3X + model should be available for sale, offering a spacious interior with an area of approx. 27 m2 , and therefore with a size typical for ... an average studio in Poland. If you manage to keep the interior layout as planned, the amount of space inside can be really impressive.

In addition, the 3XC motorhome with a three- module rear fold-out - as in the 3X caravan - should already be available for sale. Its production was supposed to start in 2015, but still only visuals can be found on the website. The appearance of such a model at the campsite can be even more sensational than the meeting of the 3X caravan there - so we hope that the premiere will take place soon.
