    The ultimate stealth camper?!

    Spotted today. I nearly fell off my bike when I saw it.

    Apparently another cyclist actually did when he saw this coming down the lane. It was skimming hedges to both sides and nearly wholly camouflaged and it appeared the hedges were approaching and closing in on him.

    How strange. Surely the glue needed to stick it on would damage the paintwork.

    maybe it is going to be used for some kind of advertising for fake grass?

        DIFFERENT - not my scene - but I do recall during a discussion on wilding someone who didn't complained us wilders spoil the countryside by dotting beautiful scenery with white vans parked up in the wild. Dare I say it - yes I will - Surely no one would steal that van!

          I think it's probably for a publicity stunt as well, or surely there would be some flowers amongst all that grass!

              Love it, great idea....! Also like your thought Kangoo....

              Wonder somehow how it will perform when dripping wet and temps get lower than 0° C......how much would an ice sheet of 1 to 2cm thickness on that surface weigh ...?

              In my youth there has been a sprayable surface for walls which gave them a really thick velvety texture...a friend sprayed it on his old VW beetle, in dark blue, colors faded relatively quickly and it had then an almost faded jeans look in places like the roof and hood...lovely surface to touch it was....sh*g carpet on wheels...

                ...bit of a job polishing it?
                The trouble with a hotel is that it tends to stay in one place.

                    I do not polish but occasionally dust every single leaf of our tame indoor plants....


                    there are also camper van indoor uses for artificial gras... probably doubles insulation...

                      The body was covered in polythene first and the fake grass is adhered to this. Close-up, the grass looks very realistic, even with brown bits. As for the weight, I wouldn't like to even guesstimate how much a few heavy showers would add but I'm told it drips for several hours afterwards and the additional weight affects its handling.

                      Re theft - it certainly stands out, except in hedged lanes, but is also fitted with a tracker as a precaution.

                      The interior is a standard 6-berth with no alterations.

                        Reminds me of the dog fur covered Beetle in that silly american comedy film that my kids used to watch over and over.

                        That fake grass weighs a ton. I bought a roll for covering geocaches, a nice young man carried it back to the car for me as I could barely lift it, and I bet it would take quite a few rolls to cover a 6 berth moho.

                          All in all it seems to be a rather good idea......
