The latest model fits on a Mercedes Class X pickup, turning it into a small motorhome.

Bath2go bathroom can be attached outside on the back of a campervan

A campervan is perhaps (depending on the model and the way the owner has modified it, if at all) the most flexible vehicle for touring, or living and working on the road. Often, however, campervans are lacking a bathroom. A German company has introduced a product called Bath2go that includes a toilet and a shower, and can be installed to many vans.

Opel and Vauxhall introduced a campervan model based on the Vivaro van

It is fairly common and also economical to remodel a campervan out of an ordinary van. You need a van that has enough space for beds, and the rest of the required facilities depend on personal taste and needs. VW Transporter is regarded the most popular van for campervan conversions, but there is plenty of room for other brands to target people who are getting into vanlife, or simply want a car that doubles as a recreational vehicle and as a transporter of people and cargo.
