    Talking Very compact expedition camper

    Hi,

    at the yearly meeting at Kloster Andechs, Bavaria I saw an interesting camping vehicle, which I want to show you. It is the opposite of my large truck, but still a full camper. It is so small, that it would nearly fit into the garage of my cabin.

    Enjoy,
    Emil

    I saw my very first Vespa Car as a kid and immediately thought that it could be converted into the perfect compact camper. Here's one of my favorites...it has a slide out. Yeah baby!

    I like the way the Engel is dropped in the counter top like a chest freezer.
    Pretty cool.
    Don't know about putting a load on a roof rack of a three wheel truck though. Yikes!

    Quick Google search of 3 wheel drive turned up the Moto Guzzi 3x3, so such vehicles could be 'expo'd". But that would be really weird.

    With slide-out it is even better.
