You’ll still see them occasionally today, but the skin-crawling ickiness of tenth-owner RVs tends to mean the end comes […] The post Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Dolphin Mini-Motorhome appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 1967 Chevrolet P20 Adventure Line Motorhome

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, quite a few Midwestern RV manufacturers would take new Chevrolet Step-Vans and build them into motorhomes. Most spent productive decades ferrying retirees between Michigan and Florida, then settled into long-term retirement in driveways and dirt lots, serving as homes for many generations of raccoons, possums, and wasps. Here’s a […] The post Junkyard Find: 1967 Chevrolet P20 Adventure Line Motorhome appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Doubleback camper van extends 6.5 feet with the press of a button

The original van frame on which the Doubleback is based measures 5.92 meters (19.4 feet) long, a generous size for a van but a bit cramped for living. However, once it extends, the pod adds another 2 meters (6.5 feet) for 7.92 meters (25.9 feet) of space. The extended compartment in the rear of the van is made of a lightweight but incredibly strong aluminum composite that weighs only 130 kilograms (286 lbs). With built-in supports extended, the area can comfortably hold 600 kgs (1322 lbs) of ...
