    Awesome. Now soccer moms have a mobile kitchen to make a sandwich at a moments notice.

        "She's in the Doubleback"

        It's got a great ring to it.

      i also agree… that your dad should have swallowed you.

    This is cool, and don't get me wrong, I'd love to be out in nature and have a cold case of beer at the ready. But I kind of prefer hitting the trail with a backpack, poncho, and just a few other things to get me through a night in the woods.

      nothing like sleeping in a tent.

  • chuck

    That's not camping.

      Nope. That's temporarily moving in to the woods.

    Sweet. I'll be at the hotel ordering room service while using the free Wi-fi

    Wow now you can travel too exactly the same places as every other person! Or you could just purchase a 4X4 and tour the roads less traveled.

  • Logicyup

    Save the 40 thousand or so (didn't see any new ones cheaper) get a tow hitch and buy a pop up camper, or rent one. More room, probably less hassle, and the added bonus of not having to pack up the whole thing every time you need to run to the store or want to be a tourist and visit things, just leave the pop up at the site and off ya go.

      No kidding! digging around i found the price is $86,988….. 87K!??? are you kidding?
      get a nice Jeep grand cherokee.. LOADED… and throw in a 10K popup and you have more room and a cooler vehicle.

      hope it comes with safety features like active roll out control cause when I do need to pack up and move I don't want accidentally extend the back while driving at speed….. WHEELIE TIME!!!!!!

  • Hendo

  • Tommy

    My sister was conceived in the back of a VW Bus somewhere in the Swiss Alps. True story.

    Buy yourself four Clark Jungle Hammocks (4-season), buy a bunch of camping snacks, some Jaeger, two cases of beer, Bailey's Irish Cream, bottle each of Sapphire, Cuervo, and other assorted liquors. Now invite some Chivettes and have yourself a weekend to remember, forget and then remember what you forgot! Oh yeah and pocket the other $35,000 for future weekends of fun!

    • Erik

      I am totally going to buy some of those hammocks. Thanks bro

  • Andy Valentine

    Give me a 70's camper van any day of the week.

    When the Zombie Apocalypse comes I want this!!!

    • Thoridin58

      When the Zombie Apocalypse comes I would rather have a Brinks Armored Car. Kind of like a fort on wheels. Even has gun ports. Your survival rate will go up just a bit.

    #9 Is it me, or is this little girl about to get smashed in the face?

    • Toddstar

      She's definitely not catching that thing.

    • David

  • Patrick

    So what happens when the motor goes out on the back part? How much would it be to fix that?!

    • Art

      Modern Vw vans are front engine.

      • Paws
