The CR-1 Carbon is a huge, glossy bus trailer that manufacturer Global Caravan Technologies claims is, "the world's first all-carbon fiber RV."

The CR-1 Carbon camper is constructed with carbon fiber materials, utilizing expertise from aerospace technicians and IndyCar manufacturer Dallara. The vehicle uses a bonded 'monocoque' structure that doesn't require screws or fasteners. This makes it stronger, more durable and more moisture-resistant than regular campers.

The manufacturers of the CR1-Carbon haven't revealed when the product will be made available, although it did say that the North American, European, Australian and Chinese markets would be targeted. Stats for Carbon Fiber Campers Trending: Older & Mild
