The idea of hitting the open road, exploring rugged terrains, and getting up close and personal with the wonders of nature is a dream many of us share. For an adventure with a similar mindset, the right camper can make all the difference, and Icelandic company Mink Campers has set its sights on redefining the way we experience the wild with their latest creation, the MINK-E.
Mink Campers has made adventure-based mobile trailers interesting with its aerodynamic teardrop styling. And this image is carried forward in the MINK-E, which is delivered as an eco-friendly, all-electric teardrop trailer designed to tag behind an electric vehicle. This reimagined trailer not only boasts a vibrant ‘electric’ blue color theme but also introduces a host of features to make living in the great outdoors comfortable and interesting.

At a compact 13.5 feet in length and weighing just 510 kg, the MINK-E is the company’s lightest camper. Its classic teardrop shape is aerodynamic, making it the ideal companion for electric tow vehicles with minimum drag. Built to endure the rigors of the road, Mink- E is made from ABS plastic and a solid shell structure with 1.2-inch-thick walls, providing both strength and insulation.
One of the most exciting aspects of the MINK-E is its power source. Unlike traditional campers, which rely on gas or diesel, the MINK-E is powered by electricity. This eco-conscious approach allows you to explore nature while leaving a smaller carbon footprint. Charging the MINK-E is effortless, thanks to its EV charging socket, and with an onboard battery and integrated solar charging, you can venture into the wilderness with peace of mind.
But Mink Campers doesn’t stop at an eco-friendly power source. The company has used recyclable materials in the buildup; around 25% of the trailer’s content is recyclable. Thus, MINK-E embodies a fusion of sustainable design and off-grid living, setting a high standard for the industry.
Inside, the MINK-E is also an oasis of comfort. Its round doors and windows, and large skylight, bring the beauty of nature right into your living space. The camper features a mini kitchen under the tailgate, complete with a 36-liter ice chest and an induction cooker, allowing you to whip up delicious meals while camping off the grid.
The cabin features an RV queen-size mattress, providing a comfortable retreat after a day of adventure. If you’re traveling with family or friends, a cot-style bunk can be mounted to the walls, serving as a child’s bed or a convenient storage shelf. For a tag of about £25,328 (approximately $30,800), the pretty capable MINK-E is now available in the UK, Iceland, and few other European territories. So, if you’re someone ready to invest in an eco-conscious, adventure-packed trailer, Mink-E an opportunity not to be missed.
