  1. Gördüğüm en pratik karavan,Volkswagen bana bu karavanı hediye et ömür boyu reklamını yapayım :))

  2. The only problem I see is you can only have 2 people while driving. Weird- because it looks like it has enough beds/space for our 5 person family, but it doesn’t matter if you can’t have all 5 people in the van when driving.

  3. Yesterday i was thinking such rear cabin technology and today you tube recommend this video to me

  4. 西方科技已經在生活融入,共狗吹一味大己無當,香港人走出去西方國家生活,及卷戀英殖民政府,因對方優勢科技,及愛借人才。👍👍👍

  5. I like it – but if I order it custom to travel with three people, I am sure space will be lost.. and then since it does sleep 4 people, I am gonna need to find a 4th person in the woods to take advantage of the ability to sleep 4 – just hope he/she does not smell bad among other things. This was back in 2012..holy shit..

  6. So google recommends this video to me because I downloaded a photo of a Eurovan from craigslist. Oh great master wizard, all seeing eye google, wipe my ass for me please and lick it clean

  7. The idea is nice, but in my opinion, there are some not insignificant drawbacks. Remember to carefully clean the outside because otherwise, all the dirt is brought inside the van, right in the cavity where the whole system flows. I give an example. I have the back completely out because I’m still. I am in a camping area under some trees. It starts to rain, and the leaves fall. The retractable rear gets all wet, the leaves stick to the roof, and so does the dirt. I must remember that before closing I have to clean everything. But if this is not possible, why am I still in the heavy pouring rain and have to leave? I find myself carrying the dirt inside the van. Nice idea, but it leaves me with some doubts.

  8. 최고네요!한국은법적으로통과안될것같은데요?역시캠핑카개조는,서양인이최고죠!

  9. impressive design ….was expecting a flimsy fabric extension in the back

  10. He talked about everything under the sun except how do I heat the thing and where the hell do I plug my devices, smh. And hold on! when on earth do I get such a parking space in order to utilise that extended part of the vehicle?
    This is cool if you always ideally get 9 meters of parking space all the time otherwise, you’re going to be limited to a tiny space the van has.

  11. As long as VW refuses to sell this wonderful camper in America these advertisements are nothing but SPAM. I also refuse to even consider ANY VW as an alternative because I only want this one.

  12. Would have been nice to see the view looking into the back from the drivers position as it extends. I’m still left scratching my head which features are optional extras and which were already in there but hidden.

  13. Did anyone ever buy one? I wonder how well it works after a few years use. Looks like a prolapsed rectum.

  14. for £55k I would expect a shower and a toilet. Sleeps 4, not much use with that tiny sink and burner. Too expensive by far.

  15. it would be better if instead of a in-out tube mechanism (that can break any time) they would have made the side walls in a way that they open up and make a big roof, a tent like curtain could be used or a more sophisticated sides to roof, walls to floor mechanism (with curtain membrane as walls.).
    it’s a nice van. but not so nice camper.

  16. If it seats 2-3 people why is it designed to sleep 4? This seems like great design with so-so functional capability.
