This static caravan takes glamping to a whole other level.
Now holidaymakers can enjoy the Manhattan apartment experience in a field in the Isle of Wight or Lincolnshire.
Park operator Away Resorts has introduced the TriBeCa caravan, equipped with en-suite bathrooms, a stand alone bath, flat-screen TVs and a hot tub.

Step inside the panoramic screen doors and visitors will find an open plan living room and kitchen reminiscent of a trendy inner city loft.
In the children’s room the bunk-beds come complete with dens underneath and each bed has its own TV screen and sockets for gaming.
The idea for the TriBeCa, named after a district in Manhattan, came from Away Resorts boss Carl Castledine who believes caravanning will become much more popular after Brexit.
He said: ‘The caravan industry contributes more than £6bn a year to the UK economy, so it’s got no shortage of fans. But, it’s never really been cool, until now.
‘First of all, we know that the lifestyle and leisure needs of the family have changed drastically – especially in the past decade.

‘Add to this the massive rise in the popularity of boutique hotels and glamping – both of which have raised the expectations of families in terms of the comfort and aesthetics when on holiday.
‘We used valuable feedback and opinions from hundreds of mums as well as dads, and then teamed up with a woman designer to create the TriBeCa.’
The caravans are available at Away Resorts’s Tattershall Lakes and Whitecliff Bay parks.
