VW DoubleBack redoes the campervan experience

VW DoubleBack

Just saw this new camper on a European biking website and thought what an amazing little unit it would be.  So much more room than your typical camper van.  I wonder if they're available stateside yet?

Yep, saw that on a camping forum that I frequent.  Looks pretty cool.  It is electric extending and self leveling.

I didn't find anything on the Doubleback website other than they're a UK company and it's a new product.  Doesn't look like they've announced plans to move to the US yet or if they'll export.  At this point it seems it's just something to dream about.

Good lord!  I just heard from a friend in the UK that they're asking 55k Pounds Sterling.  Errrm, that's $85,800 in our money.  YIKES!!

You could buy a homestead for that price.
