Belgian construction company Skilpod has produced a prefabricated home that can generate all its own energy and pop up in as little as half a day. Designed by UAU Collectiv, the new #150 Skilpod solar-powered model is a zero-energy home constructed from cross-laminated timber and takes about 20 days in total to build in the firm’s factory in Geel.

The basic model comes with standard RV hookups for water, electricity, and septic and that’s approximately where the similarities end. Beyond that point, the Vista offers amenities that no other travel trailer can possibly live up to.
