Two fibreglass imitation rear ends glued together :?
Why not make them better looking and more streamlined by copying the front of a split/bay
thus having a front and a back :?

Making it with two rear ends allows for two access hatches if required.

Have an early and late combination of vents makes it look a bit odd to me on the long one. The Shortie looks better to me.

That's nothing, how about £65,000 for a trailer caravan http://www.ysin.co.uk.

Funnily enough they've stopped production....

They chopped a few buses to get a fibreglass mould.

They look cool, but wouldn't they run into trouble for design infringement?

These little half bug caravans look cool, they go to lengths to state that it is not based on a certain car design!
