The Doubleback is based on the VW Transporter powered by Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter turbo diesel. The slick conversion adds a new dimension to a pop-up, namely, “pop-out.” There is also enough room to bring along a camping toilet.
You can watch a review of the VW Transporter T5 turned into a doubleback motorhome in this video.Not only does the campervan open upwards, but a “pod” slides out the rear electronically, adding about six feet to the length of the vehicle while stationary.
When extended the rear seat/double bed is out in the pod, giving a living area with additional seating and table. Side kitchen as you enter via the side door equipped with Grill, 2 Burner hob, Fridge and sink. Pop top roof with additional sleeping area for 2.
