    Found this new concept, what do you think:Smile:

    The new vehicle design by Christian Susana is a nice combination of car and a caravan camper. Christian has called it Colim (Colors of Life in Motion), which might not win many points on looks department, but still is quite useful given the kind of flexibility it offers. Colim provides the advantage of detaching the front part if one does not have a usage for the home part. Design wise it reminds more of geometric shape, which one can say to be a welcome change from the regular designs, but the designer has really explored a possibility using different shapes which may pave way for better shaped cars.

    It's not for me I'm afraid, a cross breed between a 5'ver and a demountable.
    Lokks like it should be in a Telly Tubbies episode. :Rofl1:

    I really like this as a concept. Being able to drive away from the bulk of the 'van appeals to me. :Cool: I would be interested in dimensions and projected cost.
    As the design developes I expect the habitation area will improve and incorporate the usual 'must haves'.

    Typical designer's ego trip.

    Looks fantastic. Very clever.

    No use to man nor beast.

    bearing in mind this is only a computer generated view of it I think it has great potential, the day of the "A" frame is limited, this concept offers a viable alternative overcoming the faults of a standard demountable or size of a fiver. Current layout is very sparce and hardly feeds the imagination, but that is only a minor detail. Put me at the top of the list to be a beta tester.
