Reinventing the Gypsy Caravan

Tonke Campers Tonke Campers

Tonka Campers, created by Dutch documentary filmmaker Maarten Van Soest (and named after Maarten’s daughter), offer a refreshing take on disposable travel. They are obsolete already, in the best possible way, and mature rather than date.

Eschewing the typical molded plastic and vinyl, they are hand-built in a village in the south of the Netherlands using traditional methods and materials. Rustic luxury awaits on the inside, with polished mahogany fittings, teak floors, porcelain sinks, chrome faucets and glass windows.

In as little as 15 minutes, the camper unit can be removed from the vehicle, allowing for placement in a garden as a guest cottage or inspirational workplace.
