This DuoCar is the most unusual of the line-up, though, with an end washroom and large sofa opposite the kitchen up front. It debuted as concept two years ago and is now officially on the order books.
This is a modern campervan, for two people, and has a number of eye-catching features. The sofa bed solution is of an innovative design and that large kitchen has a sizeable worktop section - perhaps among the biggest in the campervan segment.
It has a spacious feel inside - due in part to the open lines of sight in the layout - and a tried and tested furniture concept.
A pure two-berth, this model is under 6m long, making it more flexible for city breaks as well as longer touring holidays. A sofa converts to a two-metre-long double bed, running lengthways. This is easy to operate and the process is quick; in just a few simple steps you can go from sitting on the sofa to snuggling down in the comfortable bed.
As well as the bed being easy to set up, another plus point is that there is integrated bedding storage for during the day. Also, the sleeping side of the sofa bed features a breathable mattress fabric that can be unzipped and removed.
At the rear is sliding door access into the washroom. The toilet stows under the wardrobe when not needed, meaning you can use this as a dressing room, too. The basin folds and there is an outdoor shower function integrated into this area also.
