    Default Looking for something different for your Hilux or Ranger? How about Biwakbox?

    Just came across this...original design to say the least.

    Interior space is nice but seems a bit awkward with the over hang?
    I would rather have the same height with a cabover for extra room...like a callen...

    Reminds me of the air foil you see on a modified oval sprint car. Nice concept but not sure it has any advantage

    Thanks but no thanks . Too much rearward weight and not much of an improvement from the basic customized camper shell.

    I thing the "too much rearward weight" argument is a little misplaced. They claim it only weighs 100kg, so it's not going to do much more than a person standing on the rear bumper.

    That being said, UGLY.

    That camper looks uncomfortable in so many ways.

    Looks like that was designed after seeing a big a$$ed bug!! I like it. That idea would work great for a 406 Unimog.
