The word

Buffalino

The Buffalino is based on a Piaggio APE 50, a 50hp scooter that is popular as a taxi, delivery truck, etc. in Europe. The compact RV has everything a traveler could want in a tiny footprint.

Designed by German industrial designer Cornelius Comanns, the little RV has a small desk, seating for two, a sink, gas stove, storage, a small refrigerator, and a fold-out bed that sleeps one.

All within the tiny footprint of the Piaggio enclosed APE 50.

And so ...

I'd bet some of those Chinese drivers stuck on the 10+ days of freeway traffic jam wish they had one of these.
