Removable Eco Pods (UPDATE)

IN-TENTA Upgrades its Previous Design to the DROP XL

— April 29, 2014 — Eco
When it comes to making sustainable eco pods, this design by IN-TENTA hits all the marks, from luxury fittings to an easily mobile design. The firm originally came out with the DROP eco cabin, and going off this structure's success, the team decided to make a few upgrades. From this, the DROP XL was formed.

The pod looks much like the original, but this design has more space for add-ons if the owner so chooses. Sections such as a closet or a space for cooking can be put in, and the pod already comes with a hotel room and bathroom area. For anyone who is looking to do some "glamping," the DROP XL is the ideal way to enjoy the wilderness in style.
