The arrival of 2015 signals not only a time to look back on the past year, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It’s a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.
Given the hectic, stressful lifestyles of millions of Americans and Canadians, it is no wonder that “enjoying life more” and “relaxing in the outdoors” have become popular resolutions in recent years.
As an important step to a happier and healthier living, more and more families are choosing the RV lifestyle as a means of relaxation in the great outdoors.
But have you ever thought about what RVs of the not-so-distant future will look like?
Designed for ‘urban living’, the ForFreedom is touted as being an ‘expanded living unit’ for the urban couple in need of a short break.
The flowing caravan trailer form is aimed at creating stability and fuel economy. Due to its compact size, this caravan trailer is easy to handle and connect to your car.
The interior has been designed to be easy to personalize. The interior includes a modern style with a very simple finish that can easily be adapted to match the owner’s style and taste. Gone are the standard finishes and stereotypical furniture of existing RVs on the market today. Comfortable as well as functional, it contains a larger seating area and spacious full size double bed.
Although the ForFreedom looks rather small from the outside, you’d be surprised at how spacious it really is. And that is a result of the sliding chassis and pivoted center, which allows for the living unit to open up and expand into a large living space with potential to create a panoramic view, the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
For efficient heating, the walls are made of sandwiched fiber glass with closed cell insulation.
Internal electric heating with solar panel on the rear section to provide a more environmentally friendly alternative to standard motorhomes and trailers. Discrete storage solutions, including large rear storage can also be accessed from outside for convenience during transport.
At arrival this compact living unit opens up with the aid of a sliding chassis and pivot on the one side to dramatically increase the size of the living space. Through the use of an adjustable canopy a private lounge area is created with a panoramic view of the surroundings.

Could you see this replacing your current home on wheels?
To re-create yourself anew in every moment in the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you had about Who You Really Are. That is the purpose in becoming human, and that is the purpose of all of life.
