When you arrive at the campsite, Version4 unfolds like a butterfly. No wonder that the developers from Bavaria named their entire company after him: Farfalla Camper. In German: the butterfly.

Luggage tag with butterfly function

At first it looks like a normal luggage tag, but on the campsite it folds up to the side to form a caravan and can also transport a motorcycle. The Farfalla Camper Version2 costs from 11,950 euros, for the larger version4 it starts at 14,950 euros.

When unfolded, the Farfalla Camper is actually reminiscent of a butterfly (Italian: farfalla); when folded up, it looks like a normal luggage tag. And like such trailers, the butterfly camper can also transport a motorcycle.

Basic Farfalla Camper Pure and version LS with washroom

The Farfallla Camper consists of screen printing plates and white plywood elements with a GRP surface. The company Unsinn Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH provides the trailer that serves as the basis for Version4. The manufacturer builds the Farfalla camper equipment on a wide variety of basic trailers, depending on requirements. It is also conceivable, for example, to expand a lowerable luggage trailer, which is of interest to motorcycle owners if they want to take their two-wheelers on vacation.

Loading area for the motorcycle in version 4 (in the picture) with the case size shown: 2.55 x 0.82 m with an interior height of 1.53 m. With version 2 it is 2.55 x 1.12 m (interior height 1.53 m ).

When folded, Version4 of the folding caravan is 2.55 meters long and 1.42 meters wide. Including the drawbar, it has an external length of 3.93 meters. The track width is 1.92 meters. And that was precisely what was particularly important to Friedrich Maier during the planning. The hobby camper wanted to design a trailer that could hold all of the family’s luggage. Since he couldn’t find anything on the prevailing market, he designed one himself. The result: The Farfalla Camper Version4.

2 lying areas, each 140 x 200 centimeters

Two sleeping areas on the left and right make the Version4 a family camper.

When you arrive at your holiday destination, the pages can be unfolded on both the left and the right. Then a caravan is created with a living and sleeping area of ‚Äč‚Äčaround 4 x 2.50 meters. The surfaces of the side flaps serve as a place to sleep. They are equipped on both sides with cold foam mattresses and plate grids for a comfortable spring base and each measure 140 x 200 centimeters. At the rear, Maier did without two wing doors and instead relied on a tailgate that holidaymakers can open from the inside and outside. Four prop stands provide the necessary stability.

Customers can also order a porthole for the rear door as an option. Also available for a surcharge: the furniture set, checker plate mudguards, drawbar box – for example for transporting a gas bottle – and also individual specifications on request.

The area dimensions can also be combined with an interior height of 1.94. There are a total of 6 lashing points in the trailer as standard, others can be configured according to individual requirements.

The gross vehicle weight is 1,300 kilograms. With an – according to the manufacturer – empty weight of around 560 kilograms, you get a payload of 740 kilograms. However, it must be mentioned that this information does not take camping equipment into account.

Sleeping tents and outdoor kitchen

Version4 has three tents on board: a sleeping tent on the left and right side as well as an awning. Consisting of polyester and PU-coated, the material should be waterproof and weatherproof. While stainless steel forms the skeleton of the sleeping tents, six telescopic poles are used in the awning. The tents are connected to the trailer via piping strips and rails.

The kitchen module comprises two boxes with a total of five drawers and is part of the furniture set.

The Farfalla Camper Version4 only cooks outside. Hobby cooks have to buy the right kitchen module if they don’t want to do without a pan and bowl on vacation. The module comprises two boxes with a total of five drawers and a 115 x 44 cm worktop. In addition to the kitchen block, buyers of the Farfalla Furniture Set also get a table and four stools. Cost: 1,150 euros.

Loading concept as simple as it is effective

Like every developer, Friedrich Maier tries to make the best possible use of the little space available in the trailer. The loading concept is therefore as simple as it is effective: Under the lying areas inside there is space for a total of eight boxes with a total capacity of 200 liters. With the furniture set already mentioned, there are seven additional storage boxes in different sizes. So you can pack for the vacation as needed.

There is space for a total of eight storage boxes under the beds.

Smaller version2 from 11,950 euros

Version 2 is a size smaller with only one sleeping option on the left side, but at 150 x 200 centimeters it is a little more generous than the bigger brother. the “two” At 11,950 euros, it is around 3,000 euros cheaper than version4.

The makers of the folding caravan continued to work on the two models. In the future, customers will choose between three different mattresses: standard, bed plus and bed superior.

  • default: Mattresses made of 14 centimeter thick cold foam with Rainstop covers
  • Bed plus (optional): 12 centimeter thick mattresses with polyester covers and an underlay made of knitted fabric (3D mesh) as an underlay for more comfort and ventilation
  • Superior bed (optional): 12 centimeter mattresses with polyester covers on Froli plate grids for the spring base and for optimal ventilation of the mattresses

With this gradation, Farfalla Camper has succeeded in lowering the prices of both models. Version 4 will cost 14,950 euros in the basic version instead of 15,790 euros, version 2 now costs 11,950 euros instead of 12,290 euros.

Version 4, which can be seen here, offers sleeping places on both sides. Version2 only on one.

For a surcharge, the manufacturer also offers climate tarpaulins that are drawn in and tensioned in piping rails above the sleeping tents. The tarpaulins ensure that it is dark longer in the folding caravan after sunrise. In this way you protect the caravan from heating up too quickly. In addition, the tarpaulin prevents bird debris from falling directly onto the tent. Practical: They can also be used as a sun sails.
