It does not usually need a pop-top to accommodate its users. Modern mid-sized Japanese vans such as the Toyota Hiace are sometimes converted to have the appearance of a classic Volkswagen. The car camper is a station wagon converted into a travel home. The rear cargo area is converted into a full double bed area usually with a fabricated aluminium framework. All equipment necessary to set up a well-appointed camp site is stored under the double bed with access through lidded areas under the bed. Unlike a standard station wagon where the camping equipment has to be removed before sleeping or a tent set up, the car camper is self-contained.
Similar to North American A-class recreational vehicles sometimes known generically as "Winnebagos" but generally still smaller in Europe. Fully coachbuilt over a medium-to-large van chassis, from 7. Highly appointed, sometimes with electrically operated slide-out sideways extensions to the living space, electricity-generating windmills and in very large models of North American scale sometimes even fitted with a hydraulically operated garage capable of transporting a small car. Smaller sub 7. In its place, a wider cab is added, which allows for a drop-down bed to be fitted above.
Recognisable by their large curved windscreens. Coachbuilt body, retaining the base van's cab, with a raised Luton van style area over the cab containing a bed. Shower and toilet cubicles usually fitted.
Sometimes including a garage for bikes, and may be large enough to support a mechanism for towing a small city car. Coachbuilt but without a raised bed over the cab. Other beds may be fixed in place, built by moving seats and tables, or lowered from the ceiling. Garages and towing fittings may be carried as with the overcab designs.
Based on a high-top van, typically of around 2. Beds typically fixed in place or built by moving seats and tables. Shower and toilet cubicles sometimes fitted. Typical base vehicles are the same as for the coachbuilt designs, above. Often based on a relatively small van, typically 2 to 3 tonnes gross vehicle weight, including the classic Volkswagen Type 2, and with a roof which raises, usually with fabric sides, in a way not unlike a roof tent.
Bed typically in the rising roof but also sometimes built by moving seats and tables. A rising roof is also sometimes used to allow for standing room in the vehicle. The Volkswagen Transporter is a common base vehicle, and Ford Transits are also reasonably common.
