“The mobile home has a complex 12V electrical system which can be charged in three different ways: with the 250W solar panel placed on the roof, the engine’s generator, and a regular 220V socket. It has 200Ah capacity of batteries and a smaller 220V inverter. Both gas and water systems are quite simple to use.

An extra connection makes it possible to take a fast shower behind the van,” according to Design Boom.
