The Dreadnort POD
(Point Of Difference)

Our concept came about from a case study in 2011 for a multi-use tsunami survival shelter that would double as a boat and caravan.

It should be noted that our POD, in its current form will not stand up to the forces of a tsunami due to our door design and large windows.

We plan to offer the POD’s with varying layouts and different sizes.

Off-Grid Solar Options!


  • 5.1m x 2.5m x 2.5m
  • Plan View Area 9.44m 2
  • 1000kg (V1 Approximate)
  • Scalable in Size
  • Lifting Lugs – Hiab or Helicopter!

Uses for the POD include:

  • Portable Office
  • Sleepout
  • Glamping Unit (See Version 2 Layout)
  • Camper Van (We plan to offer a full road legal version in the future)
  • House Boat (After all we do design boats!)
  • Food Stall (with a serving door)
  • Humanitarian/Disaster Relief Shelter
  • Inter-Planetary Rover?

Version 1

Version 2

Version 3 – Caravan


A cross-over between a caravan and teardrop camper with an overall length of 5m, width of 2.1m and height of 2.4m. 

The Pod dimensions are 4.08m x 2m x 2m and has approximately a 1.7m standing headroom in the middle.

The Kitchen folds out of the back door and the aft compartment with canvas door has a 40L fridge/freezer, sink and room for a porta-potty.  An aft hatch allows for kayaks or SUPs to slot inside while travelling.  80L fresh and grey water tanks and of course off-grid solar.
