When stowed, the Opera Mobile fits into a one-tonne, tandem axle trailer equipped with hydraulic shock absorbers and integral rear LED lights. The trailer is reckoned to be no wider than a typical saloon car and lower than the rear window too, at 4.87m long x 1.82m wide x 1.1m high.

When unfolded, however, the Opera Mobile polyester tent transforms into a striking living space that bears more than a passing resemblance to a certain Antipodean concert venue.

The interior and veranda have teak flooring and the two electrically adjustable single beds can be combined into one double. The Opera Mobile also comes with a ceramic chemical toilet, an outdoor kitchen unit with two-ring burner, 46-litre top-loading fridge, stainless steel sink and a pullout hand shower.

The only catch is that this level of opulence doesn’t make for a cheap way to camp and the Opera Mobile costs €28,020, including delivery — that’s a not inconsiderable £23,324. More details and photos can be seen at the YSIN site, if you’ve had a recent lottery win.
