That is impressive. It is an animation and says concept video. I wonder how close they are to building it.

This video contains footage of the actual concept prototype. Starts at about the 22 min mark.

I love it. Or at least 99% of it. There's something hokey about that rounded rear end shape. I dunno, maybe it will grow on me. Someone send me one to test and I will see.
The interior, however, is absolutely amazing. Why has no one ever thought of inflatable (and therefore insulating) tent canvas?

The Euro RVs, and especially van-based RVs, are so much nicer than most of what we have here in the USA. Functional, well-designed, and well-constructed (based on ones I've seen in person). I'm still surprised we haven't seen very much cross-over here to the USA. When Hymer Group entered the NA market I thought it would shake things up, but with the implosion of Roadtrek, not so much.

I also had high hopes that Hymer would bring innovative European campervan designs to North America when they bought Roadtrek in 2016. Obviously that turned into a failure!

Perhaps we'll get a second shot now that Rapido Group, the owner of Westfalia in Europe, has bought the remains of Roadtrek out of bankruptcy. They've announced a two year plan to revive Roadtrek initially, then will consider whether to bring Westfalia units to North America.

It would be nice to see Westy back in the states again!
