Is it a boat? Is it a caravan? Well, it appears the 'Thansadet' is both. From the weird world of computer generated design, comes the Gambo Design 'Thansadet' - a floating caravan.
Capable of turning from a car-pulled touring caravan into a floating houseboat, it is perhaps one of the stranger things to come out of the blogosphere in recent months.
With space for a family of five, the concept caravan would supposedly take in the best of boating and caravanning. Once detached from the towcar, the body can move from land to sea, converting its inhabitants from land-lubbers into sailors in one effortless launch.
As seen on thedesignblog.org, 'Be it land or water, the modular mobile home promises to take you to your favourite destination with ease.'
Two side windows can be opened up to the elements and a rear deck area provides some al fresco space to relax on while cruising the waterways. The Thansadet may have to stay consigned to the realm of dreams for now, but in the depths of winter, it's a great dream.
