    Nice.. Looks like you have to pull the bed apart to stow the slideout.
    Not brilliant if you want to have a kip while on a long journey???

    I do like it though. Nice to see manufacturers thinking about new ways of doing things.

    Obviously not a new idea as it's on an 04 Fiat.

    I wonder if it was a demonstration vehicle for shows and therefore a one off.

    €38,900 is a lot of bread for an 04 Frankia, so it suggests it has rarity value.

    They also do this type of slide out on the larger luton version, this seats 6 for dinner or 8 to 10 for drinks at a squeeze. We have the non-slide out version and have also seen one with a side bedroom slide that makes a couch when closed and a bed when slid out. The rear slide great as you can park on a road and have it slid out, unlike a side slide. Frankia will build a van to your spec as well as their listed models.

    It was a production model but I don't think there are many in the UK. I think that the price may have been the reason for the rarity.
