Came across this unique lifting roof caravan video today. I never thought that such a concept would ever be realized, but it looks like it was, and perhaps long time ago as I can judge by the looks of the trailer. I wonder if there is more information on this caravan that can be found...
Enjoy the video.

I also found the original patent pdf from Poland for the above mentioned folding caravan here - http://pubserv.uprp.pl/publicationserver/Temp/dj0edjdh32orf1ensvkrdce6q3/PL65113B1.pdf
Drawings show how the lifting mechanism works.

Mity Lite Tilt top fiberglass egg

Postby WizardOfOdds » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:52 am

For those who love fiberglass eggs, here is one with a tilt-elevating roof.
Nice low closed height, but many of us older folks prefer (some need) a full height entry door rather than a half-height hatch.

Front & Back Lifting with Fabric Sides

Postby WizardOfOdds » Wed Mar 08, 2017 12:38 am

check out this design with Front & Back Lifts with Fabric Sides

Note: Source picture is huge (3k x 2k hi res), to see full picture you can either
(1) repeatedly use <ctl - > (control minus key combination) until full photo fits on screen, or
(2) right-click download the image and view with an image viewer, or
(3) use this direct link which should auto resize the image to your browser
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/1f/ba/b1/1fbab103aeb47e558956f4b71fbe170b.jpg

edit July 2017:
I tried the tip by sdripper2 (using TinyPic), so the image should be only 640x480 now.

all from http://www.adpost.com/au/vehicles/2727/

Reminder: I post LINKs to pictures, not the actual photos, so you may have to adjust your browser (say by using <CNTL > with < Minus Sign> key combination) to see the entire picture in your browser, and they may 'disappear' into the broken link bucket at any time. If the linked site allows you to download them (most do), then doing so will allow you to view them with your favorite viewer.
