What a camper!

I found this on the web. The T5 Doubleback conversion, devised by Overland Motorhomes Ltd, a company in Wales, turns the popular Volkswagen T5 Transporter into a home on wheels. It transforms itself into a fully functional house at the push of a single button. The central cabin serves as a kitchen with a table, refrigerator, cooker and sink. Unlike normal VW campers, the Doubleback can comfortably accommodate two or three passengers without the kitchen having to be dismantled. As far as weight is concerned, it only adds 150 kg to the van. The Doubleback modification doubles the space by using only 20% of the Transporter’s capacity … but it leaves no room for bikes or surfboards. I guess you can fix a rack on the roof for those.
