The behemoth that is the modern RV may soon go extinct thanks to smaller and sleeker designs like this BOB from Maynard Architects. BOB is a conceptual motorhome that is about the size of a truck and folds out to provide the ultimate outdoor experience.

The BOB from Maynard Architects has a simple design that sees the engine and gearbox sitting directly under the driver's seat, freeing up the middle of the vehicle. The middle of the vehicle can be folded down to create a living space complete with a pop-up shelter. The driver and passenger's chairs become swiveling lounge chairs that can be used to chill out in. The BOB would be perfect for lower to middle-class families looking to get into the RV scene, but unwilling to purchase a vehicle that costs as much as a house.
