Eco-friendly, Stylish, Comfortable, Lightweight Camper
On the rough, mystical terrains of Iceland where the sky kisses the Earth with its ethereal lights, a new vessel awaits to take you through the Land of Fire & Ice. Greet the Mink-E from Mink Campers, a vision sculpted into a curvy, streamlined teardrop shape, an epitome of grace in the world of RVs and trailers, awaiting with open arms, the ardent travelers and whimsical explorers among you.
Iceland's Mink Campers, known for their aesthetic and efficient designs, have endowed the Mink-E with a splash of vibrant “electric” blue against stoic gray walls and roof, a hue so bold and invigorating, that even amidst the rich palette of Iceland’s pristine waters and blue-streaked glaciers, this beauty is bound to hold its ground and turn heads.
Sturdiness is a promise, with its fused ABS plastic construction, subtly integrated within the Solid Shell Structure. 30-mm walls guard the insides like the old castle walls whispering tales of valiant knights and legendary battles. With 19-mm of Armaflex insulation and a heater-fed AirFlow system, it pledges warmth in the frosty Icelandic nights and a cool breeze when summer graces the island. Not to forget, about a quarter of the camper is crafted from recyclable materials, tipping its hat to Mother Nature with respect and responsibility.
The Mink-E isn't just about its looks and the promise of comfort, it’s a leap into the future, a commitment to the environment with its all-electric amenity set, dutifully powered by an onboard battery coupled with an integrated solar charging system. The Mink-E casts away its dependence on diesel and gas appliances, embracing instead, the efficiency and simplicity of electric alternatives like the induction cooker and electric heater. Recharging is a breeze, with an exterior charging port ready for use, so you’re never too far from the comforts of a warm meal and cozy space.
And if your eyes are craving for the panoramic dance of the skies or simply the serenity of the night, the Mink-E features large, round windows and doors and a generous skylight, offering an unhindered view of the canvas above. Rest assured, comfort is guaranteed with a queen-sized RV mattress and an added cot-style bunk for a child, making it an ideal choice for small families with a heart full of wanderlust.
For all its charm and utility, the Mink-E comes at a base price of approximately $30,800, slightly premium but rightfully justified for the eco-conscious and aesthetically pleasing upgrades it brings to the table, making it a worthy investment for those itching for adventure but unwilling to compromise on comfort and sustainability.
To witness the magic, find the Mink-E making its first public appearance at the Motorhome & Caravan Show in Birmingham, UK. And perhaps, you might find yourselves lured into its embrace, ready to chart a course through the wild, enchanting terrains with the wind in your hair and a roadmap of dreams laid out ahead. For the Mink-E is more than a camper; it's a companion, reliable and steadfast, for those journeys where the destination is irrelevant, and the journey is everything.
