According to manufacturer Weltevree, using the Dutch Tub is like "slipping inside a teacup." I'm not sure submersing myself in a vat of English Breakfast has ever been at the forefront of my fantasies, but, hey, these wood-fired Alice in Wonderland-looking basins o' fun may mark a turning point in my cognitive meanderings. One Lucid Dreaming Mask + one hand-enameled glass-fiber polyester hot tub = hours of REM bliss.

The award-winning Dutch Tub, a creative progeny of designer Floris Schoonderbeek, can pop on top of your ride's roof, creating an aesthetic of total pimpage, and allowing for hassle-free transport to any secluded (or conspicuously populated, for the attention-whoring soakers out there) spot. Setup and function are just as easy. A fire basket houses the spiral heating elements, which also have a turbo connection to heat the tub's water quickly when fed with firewood. Circulation within the bath occurs naturally for a peaceful and rejuvenative experience with nature, and whomever you select from the long line of tub junkies eager to hop in with you.

Dutch Tubs weigh 165 pounds--about the same as the average American 9-year-old--and measure 102" x 67" x 33". All come with a fiberglass cover. Colors include the signature Dutch Tub Orange, Ocean Green, Light Blue, Pigeon Blue, Reed Green, and Dark Grey. Additional shapes and fancier pants models are also available on the Weltevree Website listed below.
