The original van frame on which the Doubleback is based measures 5.92 meters (19.4 feet) long, a generous size for a van but a bit cramped for living. However, once it extends, the pod adds another 2 meters (6.5 feet) for 7.92 meters (25.9 feet) of space. The extended compartment in the rear of the van is made of a lightweight but incredibly strong aluminum composite that weighs only 130 kilograms (286 lbs). With built-in supports extended, the area can comfortably hold 600 kgs (1322 lbs) of people or cargo. Unfortunately, all that extra space and built-in furniture comes with a price: there’s only room for two seats up in the cab and the car can only safely hold 2-3 belted passengers, depending on the model.

Each model is custom-built, so there’s plenty of room for alterations based on a customer’s personal taste. + Doubleback
