Van Life (or #VanLife, if you insist) is an increasingly popular thing in the otherwise increasingly computer screen reliant 21st century. The more society wants us to stare into small black mirrors every waking minute, the more we seem to push back in the form of renovating old vans and getting back to nature.
Well, as back to nature as you can be in a diesel guzzling, mechanically questionable school bus from 1978. However, what happens when you wants to up your style game while bumming around in your van?
You buy a whisky trailer like this amazing BigWoody Teardrop, that’s what! Forget the fact that it sounds like something from Anne Summers, this ostentatious accessory is amazing.
It was built by designer Brad Ford (twinned with Skopje, Macedonia) who was asked to produce something for Dining By Design, a fund raising event to combat AIDS. Having spent much of his youth camping, Ford wanted to combine food and travel, and dreamt up what he calls “the ultimate traveling bar“.
The portable booze haven can hold 12 bottles of scotch, and has room for more bottles on display. Furthermore, inside the cabin, there’s plenty of room for box after box of Lambrini, or whatever you tipple of choice may be.
Fancy one? The original was up for sale for a cool $150,000 (just shy of £100,000). However, as it remained unsold for a while, it’s since been labeled an ‘aspirational item’ by Brad. Hmm, maybe we’ll stick to the stinky old school bus and Lidl blended malt for now.
