These days Roman and Ioana use their 1990 VW Van for weekend trips around their home country of Switzerland, but they previously used the van — named Leni — for a full year of travel around Europe.

One of the coolest features of this van is the back bathroom. It’s accessible by the garage doors and makes it easy to use the bathroom or shower — if you pick a secluded spot you can even leave the doors open!

Additionally the van has a self-built bike rack and a super cool folding bed that allows for extra headroom in the snug living quarters. Check out the awesome video tour and interview with Tiny Home Tours below.

This is the DoubleBack VW Transporter Campervan.

When on the road, the pod stays tucked up inside the back of the vehicle. Once the driver stops and decides they’d like to settle down someplace, however, it electrically extends out of the rear in under 45 seconds, adding approximately two meters (6.5 feet) of useable interior space.1
