How about this offering from the Germans

quite an ordinary combination, and able to be towed by quite small cars

Image

arguably stylish interior

Image

but what makes it different?

The base schwimmcaravan is around 16,000 euros, with a fair catalogue of addons for an additional charge, but then again your average motorhome/caravan is pretty pricey too, and 99.99% aren't "ocean going"

The Schwimmcaravan is no stranger to a bit of "sell the benefits marketing"

Someone turning a Renault Kangoo into a camper car with a few 45L storage boxes

PS. As an unashamed asker of stupid questions myself-one of the fairly innocuous comments as ever with the good old internet, provoked a bit of a sarcastic response
Question.....Can you buy the boxes?

Reply...No you have to melt the plastic yourself to the correct diameters!
Still the original poster of the vid gave the polite answer....(yes you can they are from Keter and you can get them at B&Q)

That campervan reminds me of the second stage in dog mating, where they end up back to back...
