The Impracticable RV

 Basque Redondo Lake, New Mexico

One morning I woke up seeing this had came in during the night.  First impression: cute.  Second impression: impracticable.  It is small; about as small as a designated RV can be.  It has two doors.  Two doors in something so small is not needed.  A lot of usable space is lost with a door.  The one in the rear can go.  This a European designed camper I believe.  They place the door on what we would refer to as the driver’s side, but this was a right hand drive vehicle and thus the camper door is as you see it.  Two people were in it.  You better really like one another to travel any length of time in this.

I could not find it online.  I would have liked to seen the floor plan.  Whatever the price is, and with my not knowing, I still say it is too much.    


If you internet sleuths out there want to search for it, the only markings I saw was that Alpha.
They pulled out and left before I could get out myself and see what make of vehicle it was.
Never saw the license plate either.

Sort of looks like that back door is a miniature 'garage' for storage of sporting gear.

It's a Mercedes Benz thing, sounds like. The separate storage thing confuses me.

I think it's cute for just one person.

That is a Mercedes Sprinter Van same chassis as what I have. I can tell from the interior shots there is a sliding side door vans have. Plus it has the rear barn doors as do typical vans. The one on the blog post may be a Fiat chassis. That’s my guess.

I could definitely live in it on the road!

One person I agree. But what about Beans? :)

Reading further, the Alphavan may be a rental business. I'm just as confused as you are. Backing out of this discussion on the basis of ignorance.
