Rv's were one of the dreams of my childhood! Being able to travel almost everywhere and have at the same time an equipped car with living space and amenities found in a home was trendy back in the '70's and '80's! In this video you are going to witness the high tech version of those Rvs!
It may look like an ordinary van but this is something else!
RVs are awesome but their larger size and weight brings disadvantages in the form of fuel economy, handling and convenience. The guys over at Doubleback solved this problem by creating the Doubleback, based on the Volkswagen Transporter with an added electric sliding pod in the back that basically doubles the interior volume of the van. It also packs an elevating roof, stove, sink, fridge, fold out double bed… in short, basically everything but a toilet.
It ain’t cheap, but novel design rarely is. However it certainly gives you something cool to think about!
