    Mitchell Barnow 1 месяц назад I'd love to have this camper, but I'm sure that it's pretty expensive, because the engineering is very impressive.

    Benjamin Koenig 1 месяц назад @Mitchell Barnow about $60,000 in US currency or 45,000 pounds.

    Rick & Zack Explore Offroad 3 недели назад @Simon Ci Yes make it even more of an impractical car for camping.
  • Simon Ci
    Simon Ci 3 недели назад It would be self efficient. You would not need to worry about petrol and going to petrol stations. Sun would be your Charging point. Plug it directly to sun. Like this car in my link. It charge itself from sun for 50km ( 30miles )a day. Yo can go camping for 10 years and no need to worry about going back to city to put petror. Join this 2 cars, camping + solar roof electric https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJD-ezbC5QU

    Rick & Zack Explore Offroad 3 недели назад @Simon Ci You couldn't carry enough solar panels to power the car. Add in the battery banks and you've added a 1000 lbs and taken all the space. The vehicle in your link wouldn't last 1 day camping, of course neither would the VW in the video. You won't have to go to town for petrol? How about food and water? Unfortunately at 30 miles a day you would be dead before getting back to town.

    Rick & Zack Explore Offroad 3 недели назад @Mitchell Barnow Whats impressive about the engineering? I saw nothing unique or innovative. The interior stuff is all run of the mill. The drivetrain is a standard VW with possibly a AWD option. It is totally unsuitable for camping in anyplace more remote than a Walmart parking lot. For 70K you can buy a Wrangler Rubicon and set up as an expedition vehicle and go anywhere.

    Simon Ci 3 недели назад (изменено) In few years it will be done. Big motorhome, with solar panels all around like the small car. You could fit 10x more solar panels. And you could charge 300miles a day. You could even put few extra panels around caming as Extra shade. And drink from water from lake, and hunt your own food. Dear or fish. Self efficient. Free travel , free food, fresh air. Car like ths with all around solar panels and electric engine. Tesla is doing electric Heavy Duty trucks, so big cars can be electric too https://www.spaceshipsrentals.co.uk/compare/motorhomes/family/
