The new for 2015 T6 VW camper van is here. It’s called the California, and it’s nicer, cleaner, and more powerful- just don’t call it a Westfalia!
Bill Southworth wanted to travel with his dog- in style! He built his own high-end, DIY RV travel trailer and is now perfectly at home, anywhere he goes!
The millionaire co-founder of Applied Minds has created the KiraVan SuperRV to protect his daughter while she explores the world after he is gone.
RV builders have long embraced lightweight designs, and this carbon fiber camper designed in part by Dallara is pretty much the endgame.
DIY motorhomes and restored/modified RVs are always popular posts here on Gas 2. So, when I covered this video chronicling one man’s DIY approach to converting (what looks like) a well-used Ford Transit Connect into a survivalist motorhome on the cheap for my off-grid/zombie survival site, Insteading, I thought it might do well here, as well.
I’ve maintained for a while now that the best way to convince someone that nature is worth preserving is to get them out into it. It seems like the people at Roadtrek agree- and they’re going a step further by offering a new B+ class motorhome that not only uses recycled materials in its construction, […]
50 year old Joseph Tayyar is not like the rest of us. You and I look at those 35′ long UHaul moving trucks and think, “I could fit my whole house in there.” Tayyar looks at them and thinks, “I could fit my whole house in there.” It’s a subtle difference, sure, but it’s one […]
Built by a NASA designer, the Firefly DIY camper is a rugged, go-anywhere RV concept that’s equally at home at the KOA campground or on the surface of Mars.
We’ve covered DIY teardrop trailers and campers before here on Gas 2, even publishing a how-to manual from Mechanix Illustrated a while back. This, though, is the first time we’ve seen one of these pop-up on the internet with a full series of build photos! A Redditor calling himself rufi0h posted these pictures a few […]
Converting an old bus into a DIY RV is not a new idea. Nor is restoring an old, run-down RV with modern electronics and chic, modern-touches a new idea. Sometimes, though, someone takes an idea that’s been “out there” for a while and takes it to a whole new level. That’s just what the two […]
Westfalia has just released some pictures of its new-for-2014 Westfalia camper van, and it isn’t a Volkswagen. It’s a diesel-powered Ford Transit van, and you can consider my mind thoroughly exploded.
“We wanted the camper to be finished to the highest quality,” says Andy Saunders, of his innovative Cramper RV. “Inside, it’s fully insulated and upholstered, it has a twin hob to cook on, a sink to wash up in. It’s got a big side window and even a small bed for a power nap … everyone who sees it says ‘Wow!’.”
Each new-age 1934 Bowlus Road Chief features a bespoke monocoque shell made of polished aircraft-grade aluminum over a light, high-mpg, aerodynamic aluminum frame … and you want one.
From rolling testaments to high-end architectural talent to DIY weekend projects to weird-looking, fiberglass Prius tumors, we love RVs here at Gas2. Why wouldn’t we? RVs and campers can help us get closer to nature like few other vehicles, and while the “glamping” can get a little out of hand, conceptually, you can’t deny the […]
There are little Prii, big Prii, plug-in Prii, racing Prii, and now – just revealed at this weekend’s Tokyo Auto Salon – there are full-fledged, fully-equipped, and very Real Toyota Prius camper vans. Starting with a new, 3rd-gen Prius, the conversion company adds a streamlined, fiber-reinforced plastic shell that expands the Prius’ interior into something […]
RVs are a great way to see the land, commune with nature, and (as my parents assured me, many times) strengthen familial bonds. Unfortunately, they burn gas, and require significant resources to manufacture and maintain (even the newest “green” RVs). So, what to do? If you’re an architect with some hammer-and-nail skills, you pick up […]
Mitusbishi wants to convince you that their MiEV is not only cleaner than an ICE car, but more versatile as well. To prove that their giant mobile battery on wheels presents possibilities that are nearly endless, Mitsubishi staged a demonstration in the Toyosu district of Tokyo, hosted by sexy model/actress Aki Higashihara and culinary student […]
Just imagine that the oil dried up, some big war was fought, and all the people who worry about stock algorithms were taken out as collateral damage. Imagine, in other words, that the s*** went down, and only the nice guys were left. Real “the meek shall inherit the Earth” stuff.
That rig up there? That’s what those nice guys will be driving across the deserts.
That shimmering, silvery, tadpole of a car you see up there is the Swiss ECCO, and it’s more than just a funny-looking car. Indeed, the ECCO is a solar-powered transformer that morphs from electric car to nautilus-inspired, carbon-neutral camper that was conceived by NAU – a team of visionary designers, architects, and (I couldn’t make […]
