I own a Mini-Cooper and love it so I was quick to read a new announcement from BMW. (Mini-Coopers are produced by BMW's British subsidiary.) The announcement describes the new concept vehicles as "overnight solutions." The three products are the Clubvan Camper (a tiny camper van), the Cowley (a compact caravan) and the Countryman ALL4 Camp (a rooftop tent).
I was especially impressed with the mini camping trailer, shown above. If this ever reaches production, I'll probably buy one. However, I have not yet found a source for a trailer hitch for my 2012 Mini. If BMW starts selling camping trailers, I assume the company will also have to produce hitches.
