It is by admiring the small caravans of the sixties (Sologne, Georges and Jacques, Baillou, Escargot...) that Eric BEAU decided in 2010 to create with his father a small caravan with a sixties look. "It has to be small, easy to install, quick to build and modern" he said. To meet his specifications, Eric BEAU had the idea of designing a nesting caravan with the assembly of sliding telescopic modules which was the subject of a patent. Strangely, no one had thought of this.
What's in it for you? On the road, you tow a small caravan, which takes up little space when parked, and on arrival, you get a comfortable 12m2 space thanks to 3 modules that fit into one, the 3X was born. After a first prototype in the family garden, friends and neighbours asked if it was possible to buy one? The beauer adventure was launched and the company created in 2012.
In 2017, the beauer 3X caravan won the grand jury prize and the gold medal at the Lépine competition in Paris:
The following years were dedicated to the improvement of the product and to the search for industrialists to manufacture the first models. After 2 failed subcontracting projects, Eric and his wife Patricia decided in January 2017 to open their own manufacturing workshop in a building located in Cholet, Maine et Loire. Guillaume and Philippe were the first two experienced workers hired, joined over time by Nicolas, François, Jérémy, Yann and Jérome.
Based on the same patented concept, a whole range of products has been developed to meet the expectations of private individuals and professionals: a 28m² caravan(3X+), a removable extension for vans(X-van), or the cell-car, a removable cell attached to a chassis cab. As the demand from professionals is growing, Beauer has conditioned itself to be able to respond and adapt its vehicles to all the configurations requested: mobile office, training room, Fablab, hairdressing room, recruitment area, etc. All these challenges have enabled the teams to push back their limits, improve the quality of the products and perfect their know-how, which is now recognised throughout the world. As proof, in 2021, more than half of the sales were made internationally.
In 2022, the company changed premises and recruited to meet the ever-increasing demand: still based in Cholet, it now has 2000m2 of production space and a team of 10 people involved in the adventure. With numerous caravan and motor home projects, the development of new markets and partnerships with major players, Beauer continues to develop at full speed.
