Coolest thing I've seen in a while. Whoever buys it will be king of the Dead lot or burning man.

Also, that would be fun to have at Burning Man, but not as a place to sleep!

Looks factory to me.
I guess burning man is probably more geared toward the Prevost crowd now?

It is pretty cool but,an 1100 cc engine isn't going to get you anywhere soon.
I've worked on French cars, let's just say they go about things differently.

Very interesting! Thanks for sharing that link. I’ve dabbled in this sort of thing with a old step van I built a slide out on the back. It slid neatly into the channel on the frame. But it was heavy to pull out by hand.
I’ve been dreaming in how to make short bus slightly expandable. Have even contemplated a pop up trailer tent on the roof. Of course the lower part, trailer frame, axle, wheels, tanks, etc would be removed before placing it up there. Just the tent and lid. A forklift can lift it up for installation. As I’m extra tall this appeals to me.
