Beauer's latest expanding camping trailer sleeps a family of six

• by CC Weiss

This French-designed pod tows like any teardrop or small trailer, but at camp it automatically expands to three times its size. It aims to be the best of both worlds: small and easy to tow but roomy and comfy to live in. We saw the 3X in person for the first time at the recent CMT show and also learned that Beauer has built the first 3X Plus. Just a rendering the last time we checked, the Plus is now a large, fully constructed six-person camper with the same style of triple-expanding design as the smaller 3X.

With the 3X Plus, Beauer stretches its expanding camper design into a 262 in (665 cm), 4,080 lb (1,850 kg) towable living module with flat roofline, curved front and rear ends and contrast stripe wrapping the window line. The Plus isn't quite as immediately cute-as-a-button as the standard 3X, but it's still a sleek, modern design that catches the eye, even before it's expanded into livable form. It sits on an Alko chassis and features poly construction and insulation.
