Yep, it just needs a giant pair of pants now. Of course it looks like that, Donna, it came from those sexy Scandinavians, didn't it?

In one of the more bizarre car modifications we have seen, Japanese conversion outfit Campinn has developed this unique and somewhat odd looking camper add-on for the standard Prius.

Campinn’s modified addition gives the current Prius a robust makeover of sorts, adding space for a convertible sofa-bed and overhead sleeping area. The camper addition is made of fiber-reinforced plastic and features a skylight as well as a back door for easy loading and unloading.

I saw this Prius camper on the web at the Tokyo Auto Show.

Re: Any vehicles getting 20 mpg (18 mpg US?) while towing?

My 06 Tacoma went from 11.1L per 100k empty to 14.3L per 100k with a 17b.
The last trip 1,160 k cost $220.68 CDN. It's hard to pass a gas station with out looking at the gas gage and pondering if you should gass up or not.

Unconfuse me.

You get better mileage when towing than when empty?

Re: Any vehicles getting 20 mpg (18 mpg US?) while towing?

OOps my mistake. should be 14.3/100k vers 11.1/100k.
Sorry about that.
And it's a 4L V6 auto @236 Hp Average speed is 90kms/h at 2,300 rpm in 4th gear. I do not use over drive.

Re: Any vehicles getting 20 mpg (18 mpg US?) while towing?

I just tracked mileage for the 5,000 mile trip back from picking up our 5.0. Pulling with a Chevy Colorado, 2WD, ext cab, I-5 engine, rated for 5,500 lbs. On the way out we averaged about 21.5 mpg, except where we bought Canadian gas and had to convert to gallons. Mileage went up tp 24.8 . Alf, I think this is where your 19.5 towing mileage comes from.

In California where it's posted for 55mph for all trailers and I kept it there, I averaged 17.5 mpg. From Southern California to Farmington NM where I was keeping it at 60 mph, averaged 17.2 mpg. From Albuquerque to home where I kept it at 65mph, avg was 16.8 mpg. Not too bad I think. Back roads and 55mph looks pretty good.
