The original idea was to accomodate music festival lovers who don’t like camping. You can leave the waterlogged camping to the students and rest up in relative luxury after a hard day’s partying in a Travelodge ‘Travelpod.’ Made from clear poly-carbonate glass, these mobile hotel rooms are 18 feet long, 7 feet wide and 8 feet high and comes complete with a double bed, bedside tables, lights, duvet, pillows, a dressing table, mirror, chair and toilet.
The Travelpod is still at trial stage, though Travelodge officials expect to charge a very budget price of $50 per night.
We can also imagine a potential market for backyard guest rooms.
