    The design features solar panels on the awning and roof, incorporates hydrogen fuel cells as an alternate power source, an electric vehicle charging station for Segways and Vectrix motorcycles and an AquaVentus device, which literally pulls fresh, potable water out of thin air by use of condensation capture technology.

    Nice bit of kit that Jim, What about cost, that is the defining factor
    They do tend to be a tad expensive, not for the likes of me unfortunately:Smile::Smile::Smile::Smile:

    Based on today's technology , could the panels ever charge those motors?

    looks great, would love something like it

    Looks great Jim, would love one.. would also like the money to buy one... but not being in the top earners in the UK it will only be a dream.. still very happy with my Winnebago.

    I once saw a green H van at Calais that had a cab over conversion, look real good.

    If you could afford that would you really be bothered about fuel economy. I don't believe the puff about 'off the beaten track' I wouldn't reckon much to its off road capability.

    Recycling the black and grey tanks sounds a better idea than condensing water out of the air, just need a high capacity Nature Pure :roflmto:

    Recycling of grey water has been around for years. Even my old Tiffin had something that recycled the gray water for flushing the loo.
    The FFB that we now have has the separate flush tank and we fill that with filtered gray water.
    When you think about it very few things under the sun are actually new.

    some early renault vans were nice as well. all in the same vogue. or are we just getting old and grumpy .
    bit off topic but citroen had the worlds biggest car service station in the world at one time in their brook greene buildings near london. .slough was built vertually for citroen .

    Oh blimey, the year we had Bessie, we saw an old split windscreen Citroen van for sale parked up on a bit of grass somewhere in the middle of nowhere. It had a bit of old cardboard in the window proclaiming that it was on the market and Pete was virtually in raptures. He said he loves them!

    I still don't know if he meant it or not .......... :whatthe: :Doh:
