An old campervan, caravan and boat Combo

30 Nov

I first saw this classic Mini-based outfit on UKCampsite’s website   http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=12&TopicID=348741&PagePosition=1

It is called a Euxton Caraboot.

The picture above comes from another interesting website about Mini based specials   http://maximummini.blogspot.co.uk/

Basically a 1964 Mini van,  converted to camper van , with a boat on the roof and a concertina caravan , towed hogback style. Everything you need for a country weekend’s leisure.

I find it an interesting solution in a compact package. Imagine a modern day version using a more powerful, economical base vehicle. Modern day materials would allow for lighter (?) build and more durable seals.

Any suggestions for a modern base vehicle?
