Thanks to an electric slide out rear pod that adds close to 2 meters to the length of the vehicle. This modified VW T5 Vanave a pop-up top, but also a slide-out back adding up to six feet of extra length – each of these extensions can sleep two people.

Self-leveling feet drop down from the rear extension, making sure the cantilevered zone remains level at all times, including on variegated terrain.DoubleBack sliding Pod weighs under 130kgs but can hold up to 600kg with the legs extended. The process takes about 45 seconds.
