DoubleBack Camper Van

Filed under: Camping,Teardrops & Tiny Trailers — Laura Moncur @ 10:22 am

It’s unavailable in the States, but the DoubleBack Camper Van looks like the best thing to happen to the camper van since Westfalia started converting VW buses. Not only does it have the lift roof like the old conversions, the back of the van expands, doubling the indoor space.

Here is a video describing it from BikeRadar:

The cost for this van is approximately $87,000. For that price you could buy a tow vehicle and FOUR bumper tow trailers with full RV capabilities and more space inside. This van is cool for its ability to transform like an Autobot, but you end up paying quite a bit for that feature.

If you want something that will fold up nice and small in the back of your VW van (or even your VW Beetle), nothing beats a tent.
