The camper-boat hybrid has had an interesting past. Envisioned as the new way to camp by the water, companies like Aqua-Trail began creating these floating homes for an intrigued market. However, in 1969, only 35 of the Aqua-Trail “Terra Marina” (pictured below) were made and these floating fortresses became increasingly more rare as they succumbed to the elements.
The era of the “house boat” had come to a close.
But now, a German company has created a camper that is compact and can tread water, as well as be towed by the smallest of Volkswagens!
