Would you like a tiny German camping headquarters that can also hit the water?

I've never really gotten the fascination with amphibious cars. Even James Bond doesn't need a boat he can drive onto land! But today, I get it.

Meet the Sealander, a German-made land/sea camping trailer. She's an itty bitty thing, but packs a big punch because everything inside is reconfigureable. The Sealander houses a four-person bench table, a small kitchenette, a sleeping area, and a deck.

When you want to relax off-land, pop on the teeny motor and take your little lady cruising. And on the road? She's small enough not to need additional mirrors or a Ford F-150 to haul her.

How cool would it be if RV rental companies began carrying little Sealanders?! You could vacay with this space pod/boat/camping accessory/happiness pod!

  1. I think this has amazing potential but isn't quite as awesome as it could be. What if they gave it 4 wheels and made the trailer into more of a vehicle itself? Tow it around like a trailer but once you get to your destination, you can detach it from the car and drive it around then drive it right into the water.
